On the edge of the beautiful badlands and just a few short miles from the shoreline of Lake Sakakawea, the people of Watford City have been busy building a community with big city opportunities while keeping the small town qualities and camaraderie that has always existed there. Family life, safety, career growth and wide open spaces are just some of the boxes you can check in Watford City, where, according to Omar Mohamed, “You’re not just a number in a population, people know you and they know your name.”
