Water Treatment Plant Upgrades

The City of Beulah Water Treatment Plant is in the final stages of upgrading the water treatment process. The final process upgrades will begin within the next two weeks to three weeks.

 

This upgrade introduces a different method of softening the water, switching from lime softening to reverse osmosis softening. This change in treatment will improve the overall quality of water supplied to Beulah and upgrade the plant to current standards.

 

During the upgrade process, the lime softening process will be shut down and the new reverse osmosis softening process will be commissioned and tested in a series of steps before being placed into service.

 

During this period of time, no softening of the water will occur. Customers will notice a change in the hardness of the water and some possible differences in the taste and odor of the water. The City will post updates as the timeline of these changes occur.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about this change please contact City Hall at 873-4637.

BEULAH
 
SMALL TOWN APPEAL . BIG CITY LOOKS


As you crest the last hill on Highway 49 you kind of drop into a storybook place that is often said to be the best kept secret in North Dakota.  Often referred to as the "Energy Capital of North Dakota" Beulah maintains its uniqueness of being able to go to the coffee shop and visit with the locals where everyone smiles and gives you that friendly greeting, or if you want to catch a different conversation you might drop into the "cappuccino place" and enjoy the friendly welcome and join a table crowd as you sip one of your favorite flavors or just order to go so you can keep the busy schedule.

As you look around you will note the gentle hills and valleys providing a scenic valley rich in grain and cattle.  But wait; there are some special sounds that make this place so unique.  If you listen closely you'll hear sounds that help fuel America.  Dovetailed with the fertile farmland, grazing cattle, and the beauty of the wildlife are the area's massive power plants.  Their giant smokestacks, visible for miles around.

There you have it:  Beulah, Ordinary, yet unique.  Modern, yet boasting a rich heritage.  Rural, with all the modern amenities.  Always personifying the magic word to those who live here:  HOME.

But that's not all.  A trip to Beulah also offers:

A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN HOLD YOUR CONVENTION

Beulah is the home to the new motel AmericInn and Suites complete with indoor pool, sauna, and exercise room and a high tech equipped conference room for all your business needs.   Along with our two existing motels that provide a great place to stay we can provide you with 150 rooms for your convention lodging needs.

A CITY THAT ADDRESSES SENIOR HOUSING NEEDS

 The Beulah Jobs Development Authority just coordinated the construction of two Senior Housing unit complexes to meet the needs and desires of the aging population.  The Schoolhouse Apartments are renting to seniors and provide a quality, friendly living environment for those seniors living in the complex.  A noon meal provided by the senior meals on wheels program gives the residents a balanced meal daily in addition to providing a time for socializing and "times together" which takes away much of the loneliness in the aging years.  Memories abound for many of the residents living in the historic structure as many had attended school there as well as their children.

 The Country Meadow Condominiums provide another style of living for those still able to live independently.  The four-unit complex gives the individual owners a quality life style as the units were designed with retirement and easy accessibility in mind.  The project was again coordinated by the Beulah Jobs Development Authority recognizing the need for people to relocate from the rural area or a home "too large" for their needs.  The 1,200 square foot units with cathedral ceilings, walk out decks and double attached garages provide for a comfortable living style to the owners and the enjoyment of lawns and landscaping without the work involved to maintain it.

As a progressive growing city we invite you to come visit us and see what we have to offer.  Be prepared to stay as you will see why our progressive merchants expand on Main Street and new business continues to look at relocating or expanding into the city.
