NOTICE

March 15, 2024, 3:30pm.  Water will be out in the 7100 through 7500 blocks of Rockwood due to a water line break. This also includes Rush Crt. We will be water back on just as soon as possible.

The Annual Meeting for the Water District will be held March 6, 2024 at 7pm at the office building, 8425 Quarry Rd.  Milford, KS

As we all know our mail out here in the Districts area can be lacking at times.  We are seeing an increase in the number of bills being recieved well after the due date of the 16th, that have been sent in the mail.  Any bill that is recieved after the 16th is subject to a late charge.  Your bill is not actually paid until the District recieves it, either by electronic means or USPS.  We here at our office have no way of knowing when it was sent, if by mail.  The District has made other options available such as pay by credit card, debit card, or check on line, or you can drop it off at the office in the deposit slip next to the garages.  The District is in no way responsible for the service of the USPS.  If something delays your payment in the mail, it is not in any way our responsiblity. All bills are due in our office by the end of the day on the 16th of each month. We have contacted MIlford and Junction City Post Office about these issue, to include the bills going out and you not getting them.  We have asked everyone here on our website and on the back of the bills if you do not get it by the second week of the month, just call, leave message and someone will call you back with whats amount due.

For the next month and possibly longer, Twin Valley Telephone is going to be boring their fiber optics into this area.  Unfortunately everywhere they are installing the fiber, we have water lines.  This may cause problems and damage to our water lines.  We have done every thing we can to mitigate the problem, but every one needs to be prepared for water outages if lines are hit.  Notice will be made to Ever Bridge, so if you have not signed up to that, it is the only way we notify of outages.  There is a link on our website to sign up.  Make sure you mark notices from Milford Rural Water.

The August 2023 meeting has been canceled.  The next board meeting will be on Sept. 6, 2023 at 7 PM.

At the Special Meeting and after clarification from legal staff the following action occured.  On the vote #1 Did not pass or NO,  #2 Did Not Pass or No, #3 Did Pass or Yes.  The bylaws will be updated to show that the Meeting will now be held the 1st Wednesday of the each month.  If you have any questions as to the outcome of the meeting you can contact Board Members or call 785 238-7299.

The Board of Directors have called for a Special Meeting on June 7, 2023 at the office, 8424 Quarry Rd. Milford, KS, at 7 PM.  The purpose for the meeting will be to vote on 3 proposed changes District By Laws.  Please see the article posted under News Article on the right.

The new Water Quality report for 2022-2023 is available online.  Check under the News and Information pull down.

With below zero temperatures happening over night you might consider the following.  If you have water lines near outside walls you might leave open near by.  Check under the News and Information pull down.cupborard to help keep heat to the area.  If youi think you water lines might freeze coming to the house, then leave water running in a bathtub,  it just needs be a bit more then a trickle.  And if you haven't you might check you water meter pit and make sure the lid is in one piece and that it is on the pit properly.  This help to keep some heat in the pit.

The monthly and Annual meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of each month until further Notice.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:  If you have not recieved your bill by the SECOND WEEK of the month, PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE, leave a message and we will message you back with what is due.  Our bills are sent out, to the customers, as near the 28th of each month, as possible.

If you have not discovered yet, you are able to PAY BILLS ON LINE.  This is not where you will have access to any account, you will make your payment through the State Program and they will notify us of the payment. You can pay with credit card, debit card, or check.  We do not have ACH available.
