Our Mission

At Minnehaha Community Water, Corp., we are committed to providing safe, high quality water services to our customers, while maintaining a standard of excellence in customer service and environmental conservation.

Eye on Water

Eye on Water gives you direct access to your own water usage data and provides tools to help manage your water usage.

We suggest you create an eye on water account so you can see your hourly, daily & monthly water use. You can also set up leak alerts. A leak has to be going on a full 24 hours before you will get an alert. 

MCWC staff periodically reviews unusual water use patterns, but it is ultimately the customer’s responsibility to monitor their own account. Please take advantage of the leak alert feature with Eye On Water to receive the fastest notification of leaks.

 

After Hours

If you're experiencing a water related emergency, please call (605) 428-3374, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Emails are not checked after hours, weekends or on holidays. Thank you.
