The City of West Fargo is truly “A City on the Grow!” Our population has grown very quickly since the year 2000. Unfortunately, the aquifer that has supplied the City’s water cannot continue to meet the needs of our growing population, which is currently estimated at over 30,000 people. The City of West Fargo decided in 2015 to begin purchasing water from the City of Fargo as it is the most economical option for the City and its residents.
Construction of the interconnection project began in March 2016 and West Fargo residents can expect the new water supply to arrive this summer. Public Works developed the following list of frequently asked questions about the West Fargo water supply project to share with utility customers. If you have additional questions about the water transition, you are welcome to call West Fargo Public Works at 701-433-5400 on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
West Fargo will use CodeRED phone and text alerts over the coming months to inform specific neighborhoods when Public Works will flush the City’s drinking water pipelines during the water supply transition. West Fargo residents can stay informed about the flushing schedule by signing up for CodeRED phone and text alerts. Sign up for CodeRED here and be sure to check the “General Notifications” box to ensure that you will receive the City’s utility messages in addition to emergency notifications.
