HLE Project to Gravel Community Roads

  • In June 2022, gravel was spread on HLEroadways, and
  • dust control and soil stabilization on roadways was completed.

Note: The County contractor, Morrison-Maierle, manages Hebgen Lake Estates (HLE) Rural Improvement District (RID) which has responsibility over our road repairs and maintenance, snowplowing, and administrative fixed costs.  RID’s are funded by property owners’ payment of assessed property taxes.

Updated Weed Spraying Schedule

  • June 24-26, the first round of spraying of requested lots and on both sides of the roads was performed by contract sprayer to control Kochia and other noxious weeds. Future spraying notices will be posted when timetables are known.
  • Please Note the Following:
  • Contract sprayer will avoid spraying groomed/manicured yards, even if one or two weeds are sticking up, to avoid affecting trees and other well cared for sections.
  • Contract sprayer will spray areas with long, tall grass and lots of weeds.
  • If animals or children are frequenting those areas, they will not be sprayed or at least until they’re no longer being used.
  • Pets should be kept off areas sprayed until dry depending on moisture or dew levels especially in the morning hours. But after a few hours, sprayed areas should be sufficiently safe for normal activity.

As a reminder, if you decline community weed spraying, it is the owner’s responsibility to take care of noxious weeds on their property.  If not, you may be subject to a fine from the county. See the Gallatin County Weed Management Plan for more details.    You can spray, weed by hand, mow, etc.  One easier strategy that you can use is to cut off flower heads of the plants so they do not go to seed.

Homeowner Association

An HOA helps to ensure residents are held accountable to community restrictions, and that individual properties and common areas are well-maintained. This all serves one underlying goal: to keep the community appealing to residents and future residents while keeping property values high.  HOAs work to make people feel a part of the communities they live in. One of the many advantages of living in a community association is sharing with other members the costs of certain maintenance and amenities that are often too expensive for a single-family homeowner.  Weed spraying is the primary amenity provided by the HOA. All HLE members are legally bound to share those costs in the form of HOA assessments.

Hebgen Water & Sewer District Annual Drinking Water Quality Report For the Monitoring Year 2021

Hebgen Lake Estates routinely monitors for constituents in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws.

The HLE WSD is pleased to report there were no violations for the monitoring period of 1-1-2021 through 12-31-2021.  For more details, see the file of the report and tables at hebgenwsd.org.

Our sampling frequency complies with EPA and State drinking water regulations.
