2021 Water Main Replacement Projects  

To improve the reliability of our distribution system, we replace water mains based on an index we developed that ranks the condition of each segment of main and its likelihood of failure. In some cases, water main projects are moved up the list so they are completed prior to a street paving project or major development.

We are replacing 20 miles of main in 2021. One mile may not seem like a very long distance, but each mile represents about 12 separate projects with their own contracts.

Milwaukee Water Works capital projects are funded in part by the Wisconsin Safe Drinking Water Loan Program and administered by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.  

A main replacement is usually completed in 6-12 weeks during the construction season, April-December, weather permitting. Track the progress of a project in any street in the chart below. 

Water main replacement projects will affect 300 properties with lead service lines in 2021 and will require the replacement of the lead service line with copper. The service line connects the main to the meter. We will notify customers if a main replacement requires replacing their lead service line.  Search our records to see if your service line is made of lead.shovel and construction cone image
