Schweitzer Utility Company LLC (DBA Mountain Utility Company or MUC) is pleased to provide water, sewer, cable and internet services to the community as well as snow removal service for the Resort and members of the Schweitzer Community.

The MUC drinking water system (Resort Water Company Inc. or RWC) is one of three water companies serving the Schweitzer Community.  RWC serves Schweitzer Mountain Resort and Village as well as the Crystal Springs subdivision, The Ridge, and residences on Northwest Passage down to the Schweitzer Vehicle Maintenance Shop.  We also provide water to the Sky House on top of the mountain.

The water system is supplied by three ground water wells located near the Terrain Park that pump to one of three reservoirs for treatment before distribution.  Total storage capacity is 300,000 gallons.  Water is also pumped from the treatment reservoir to the Sky House (1225 vertical feet).  An intermediate booster station is utilized to achieve this.  There is a 19,000 gallon storage reservoir at Sky House that supplies drinking water and fire protection for the building.

MUC provides sewer service to the entire Schweitzer Community.  There are no other sewer service providers.  Waste water is collected and stored in two lagoons totaling 12 million gallons of storage where it undergoes preliminary aeration treatment before being distributed to drip irrigation areas on 63 forested acres of land.  This is the largest system of its kind in the state.

Cable & Internet

MUC offers access to private cable TV (choice between Analog TV or Digital HDTV) and internet service to the entire resort and portions of the Schweitzer Community.

Primarily a winter snow removal function, we maintain Schweitzer Mountain’s parking lots and travel routes as well as some residences in the community.  Schweitzer Mountain Road is maintained by the Independent Highway District.  The side (or sub) road snow removal is provided by private contractor retained by the Selkirk Recreation District which is a taxing district in the Schweitzer Community whose mandate is providing additional recreational opportunities and access.

We do pay attention to the drainage systems in the community as well as road damage issues so if you spot a problem feel free to contact us and we’ll address the issue first hand or engage the appropriate entity to respond.
