City of Eagle Water
We are aware that people have been buying large quantities of bottled water. We want to reassure you that service from the City of Eagle Water Department will not be interrupted due to the coronavirus. The City of Eagle’s water supply is safe from virus contamination. Our water comes from wells where the first contact to the atmosphere is at the tap. It is further protected by the addition of chlorine at a sufficient dose to kill a virus. In the extreme case of a worker shortage, our system can be operated remotely online.
If you are experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus and are concerned you will not be able to pay your water bill, please contact our Water Billing Department at 208-489-8777. We will work with you to make sure you do not experience a disruption in service.
Republic Services has made a temporary change to its trash collection schedule in light of the coronavirus. Residential collection now begins at 6 a.m. so that Republic Services can stagger crew start times and keep a healthy distance between employees.
Bulky item and appliance collection will be suspended as of Monday, March 30, 2020. This is in response to early research indicating COVID-19 surface viability up to 72 hours on metals, plastic, and some paper.
The household hazardous waste mobile collection program is not an essential service and has been suspended at this time. The next collection scheduled for April 8, 2020, will be cancelled and normal operations for this program should resume before the next quarterly collection scheduled for July 8, 2020.
