Dickinson - Southwest Water Authority (SWA) is pleased to announce the 2019 Water Quality Reports, also referred to as Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR’s), are now available.

SWA’s mission of Quality Water for Southwest North Dakota begins with Missouri River water from an intake at Renner Bay on Lake Sakakawea. Together, the OMND (Oliver, Mercer, North Dunn) Water Treatment Plant (WTP), the Dickinson WTP and the new Southwest WTP treated more than 2 billion gallons of water in 2019.

Award-winning, great-tasting, quality drinking water is distributed to over 56,000 residents in southwest North Dakota through five public water systems.

These are the water treatment plants (WTP) in Dickinson, both the Dickinson WTP and the SWTP; and the OMND Water Treatment Plants; and the Crown Butte pocket, the Junction Inn pocket and the Tower Hill pocket with water purchased from the Missouri West Water System (MWWS).

SWA continually samples both raw and treated water to ensure our water meets or exceeds all requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The purpose of the reports is to provide information about the sampling results and the quality of drinking water provided by the Southwest Pipeline Project (SWPP). The CCR’s also provide additional information helping southwest North Dakota residents to make informed decisions regarding their drinking water.

All customers of SWPP water were recently mailed copies of the CCR’s (Drinking Water Quality Reports).  If you would like additional copies of the report, or if you did not receive a copy, contact SWA’s office at 701-225-0241 or 1-888-425-0241. The reports may also be viewed at
