Hallock has a well-trained 28-man volunteer fire department with safe and well-maintained equipment. The Hallock Police Department consist of one officer. The Kittson County Sheriff’s Department provides on-call service when our officer is off duty.

City Water
Since 1980, Hallock has received its water supply from North Kittson Rural Water System (NKRW). NKRW provides water from three large wells located over a large aquifer near Lake Bronson, MN. The water is delivered to Hallock in a 12 inch line. In 2009, the City replaced its 80,000 elevated tank with a 150,000 tank.  Average daily usage is 80,000 gallons.

Sewer Service
The City has a 30-acre sewage lagoon system consisting of two primary and one secondary cell. The lagoon system is capable of treating more than 300,000 gallons per day, well over current demand. 

Natural Gas System
The City owns a natural gas utility. The utility works closely with the Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety to provide safe delivery of our product. In recent years, Hallock has been able to commit to short and long-term purchases of gas allowing rates to often be well below the rates of larger publicly owned utilities.
