Electric Safety


Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) takes electric safety very seriously. Here are some tips to make sure you keep yourself and your loved ones safe:


  • Before doing any digging in your yard, call Gopher State One at 811 or 651-454-0002 to have your utilities located. Hitting a power line while digging can be fatal – please do not take any chances.
  • If you see a tree leaning towards a power line or a branch leaning on a power line, call us at 763.441.2020. DO NOT try to prune the tree yourself. ERMU staff trims trees on a rotation around the City of Elk River in the winter and spring, but will come out any time of the year if a tree needs trimming.


If you have any questions or see anything unusual, please give us a call so staff can come check it out. Our office number is 763.441.2020.
