How will I be informed if something is wrong with my water?
The LeMars Water Department is required to notify their customers if their water may not be safe to drink. Prompt customer notification is an important part of our emergency plan. The LeMars Water Department may issue "boil water or do-not-drink notices" when testing indicates that contamination may be present. Often, this boil alert will be broadcast on local television or radio station.

Some utilities employ a system that automatically call its customers with specific guidance, or they go to door-to-door if it is an emergency situation. Contact the Le Mars Water Department at 712-546-5555 for more information.
