Cross Connection Inspection Program

The Water Works and Lighting Commission delivers nearly a billion gallons of safe, high quality water to our community every year. To comply with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources regulations and to insure that the water supply remains pure, we have contracted with Hydro Designs Inc. of New Berlin Wisconsin to assist and manage our cross connection inspection program. This inspection program has been going on for several years and is ongoing. Hydro Designs will send letters to all residents they have scheduled for inspection. When you receive notice from them, please call the number listed to make an appointment for your inspection. Thank you for your patience and cooperation in helping to insure the integrity of our community’s water system.
If you have any question about this program, please call Water Superintendent Dale Scheunnemann at 715-424-9045 or Engineering Technician Adam Breunig at 715-423-6330.
