Town of Philipsburg Residents:

With storage levels continuing to drop and not recover, and with residents experiencing low or no water pressure, all non-essential water usage must cease. Primarily this is sprinkling. As of today 7-26-22, all irrigation must cease. Normal household domestic water usage may continue as normal.  


Without adequate water storage firefighting in town is severely hampered. In addition, if an emergency occurs at the treatment facilities or with the Fred Burr transmission main, as experienced this winter, the storage allows time to correct the issues. Without storage the entire water system in town may be compromised.


Your cooperation in this serious matter is greatly appreciated. Any questions about this may be directed to town hall at (406) 859-3821 or my office at (406) 859-3455.
