Milwaukee water and water mains do not contain lead. But lead can dissolve from lead service lines and plumbing. Search our records to see if a property has a lead service line.

Water Main Replacement Projects 

Water Main Replacement Projects

Our main replacement program replaces aging, critical infrastructure with new mains that provide reliable service and water pressure, and high quality water. There is no special assessment or added cost to taxpayers because the projects are paid for by the utility’s capital improvements budget, which is funded with revenues from water rates.

The North Point Tower  

North Point Tower

The Victorian Gothic tower houses an iron standpipe that absorbed pulsations from reciprocating steam engines in a pumping station on the Lake Michigan shore. The tower was used until 1963, when electric pumps replaced the steam engines. There once were over 500 standpipe towers across the United States but now the North Point Tower is one of only 12 remaining. We are seeking funds to restore the roof and weather vane.
