[ARCHIVED] City of Brookfield Water Utility Message About COVID 19

Safety is at the center of all we do at Brookfield Water Utility. As information about the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we are committed to taking preventive measures to reduce the risk to our customers while providing the essential services you depend on, including responding to any emergency situations. The good news is that currently there is no evidence that the COVID-19 virus survives the disinfection process for drinking water which is used at all of our wells.  Our potable water is safe to drink and use.  US EPA confirms this with their statement that “Americans can continue to use and drink water from their tap as usual.”

City Water users may notice a chlorine smell in the water. As an added precaution, and in accordance with the recommendations from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the City has increased its dosage of disinfectant (chlorine) into the City’s drinking water. The water is still safe to drink and meets all drinking water standards.
