It is our goal to react to the COVID-19 events with responsibility but not panic. Operations will continue and we are simply looking for effective ways to protect our employees and the community while still providing the best service level possible.

We appreciate the community’s support and patience.If you have any question or need immediate assistance please call Julie at 320-393-2280 or jfandel@ricemn.us.

Please DO NOT flush disposable wipes, cloth towels,  or sanitary napkins etc. in the sewer system. This causes an increase in back-ups in the system.  Back –ups result in increased costs and maintenance, and ultimately higher sewer rates. Thank you for your cooperation!
