Waupun Utilities is celebrating Drinking Water Week May 7th - 13th, along with American Water Works Association and its members. Drinking Water Week is a great opportunity for us to highlight our water professionals and the great drinking water our state of the art reverse osmosis water treatment facility provides to the City of Waupun. Our water professionals are some of the very best working to provide delicious water to our community.
Waupun Utilities obtains its groundwater supply from five wells ranging in depth from 611 to 921 feet. These wells penetrate the St. Peter, Prairie du Chien, Trempealeau, Franconia, Galesville, Eau Claire and Mr. Simon aquifers (in the limestone formation). Water pumped from those depths comes out nice and cold; about 52 degrees year 'round. The water is treated and tested daily to ensure Waupun residents and businesses continue to receive a safe and plentiful water supply. Water is vital to our community and we are fortunate in Waupun to have a high-quality water supply. One of our priorities is protecting this natural resource!
