Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our gate will now be closed.

If you need to pay a bill, you can do so by mailing in a check or money order, dropping your payment off to the box at our gate (cash can be dropped off at this time as we check it several times per day), paying it over the phone by credit or debit or on this website by credit or debit. (credit or debit card use will incur a 3% or minimum of $2 fee for use).


If you need to obtain a permit, please call the office at 989-687-2709 for further instructions.


Our office hours are 8-12 and 1-5 Monday thru Friday. You may leave payments in the drop box at any time, just be aware that we will not be here to check it until the mornings if you choose to leave cash overnight.


We are currently extending our shut off date from April 16 to May 1. This date MAY change as time and circumstances progress. YOU WILL still receive a shut-off bill in the mail. We HAVE to send out the shut-off notices, because those who need assistance for their bills have to be in official “shut off” status in order to get help.


*Keep checking this website for any further updates on this situation.

Water District #1 Of Midland County

Serving the townships of Edenville, Hope, Jerome, Lee, Lincoln, and the Village of Sanford

Building A Better Future By Providing Water To It’s Citizens!

Established in 1970, Midland County DPW began providing potable water to citizens within the original system; Jerome Township, Lincoln Township, and the Village of Sanford. Over the next few decades, Midland County DPW continued to build out within these three entities. The turn of the new millennium brought with it a new name for the Midland County DPW. The name changed to Water District Number One of Midland County (WD#1) in the year 2000. Along with the new name, the thought to start expanding the system into surrounding townships was established. In 2008, WD#1 began a project to extend its water system into Lee Township, followed by Edenville Township in 2010, and Hope Township in 2013.

Water District #1 of Midland County purchases their water from the City of Midland. WD#1 then distributes the water to the townships of Jerome, Lincoln, Lee, Edenville, and Hope, and the Village of Sanford. WD#1 is committed to building a better future by providing safe drinking water to its citizens.
