Most utility bills include charges for water, sewer, stormwater management, public fire protection and refuse service. Water and sewer charges are calculated according to the number of gallons of water used. The refuse rate is a flat rate per quarter.

Residents who use a lot of outside water for gardening, car washing, etc. often choose to purchase an exemption meter to monitor the amount of outside water used. Properties with a valid exemption meter are not charged the sewer fee for the water used outside. Please contact Rebecca Higby at (262) 691-5660 for more information about exemption meters.

Water Quality:

The Village’s water system is constantly monitored for quality purposes. Testing occurs on a regular basis and test results are sent to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Click Here to view the 2014 Quality on Tap Report.
