We’re a small, rural community (population less than 800) with big plans for the future. Underwood is located next to substantial energy resources and development, and midway between the larger population centers of Bismarck and Minot, ND. The city offers the many benefits of small-town living while extending the basic necessities to its citizens.
We’re proud of our service-oriented businesses, excellent school, and abundant recreational opportunities in and around Underwood. The spiritual needs of our citizens are served by 6 area churches and there are many service organizations which work for the betterment of our community.
Neighboring energy companies include:
- Great River Energy’s Coal Creek power plant (the state’s largest)
- Blue Flint Ethanol plant
- North American Coal’s Falkirk Mining Company.
All three have plans in place for expanding their operations. These, along with the:
- U.S. Corps of Engineers
- Underwood Public School
are our largest employers and offer good-wage jobs.
We have excellent public utility services and ready access to both wireless and LAN-based internet. There are several prime locations available for residential, commercial and industrial development. The Underwood Area Economic Development Corporation (UAEDC) will work closely with prospective families and businesses looking to locate in the Underwood area.
Thanks for visiting our website and please let us know when you have any questions. We’d love to have you consider our community for your future place of residence and/or business! We’re truly “energized!”
