Milwaukee Water Works never disconnects water service because of unpaid bills.
Milwaukee drinking water is safe.
Milwaukee has long treated our water with ozone and chlorine disinfection, and filtration. The World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and EPA confirm these conventional water treatment methods should remove or inactivate COVID-19.
Safe, healthy tap water is available at a much lower cost than bottled water.
Milwaukee Water Works’ essential function is to provide safe water for daily needs and fire protection. Our emergency planning ensures we have enough trained staff to keep the water running, even in times of widespread illness.
COVID-19 is an acute respiratory disease that is transmitted two ways: respiratory and contact. Customers should follow public health recommendations for common sense health safety tips.
