The mission of the water utility is to be the responsible custodian and provide a good quality, potable water supply at adequate pressures and in sufficient quantities for consumption and fire protection purposes to all current and future utility customers; to be consistent with state / federal regulations and water industry practices and standards in the most cost-effective manner possible; and to educate the public about the benefits of being good water use stewards.
Sprinkling Policy: The City of New Berlin’s Water Conservation Policy has an Odd/Even Sprinkling Schedule. Please remember to water your lawn only on odd days if your address is odd numbered and even days if your address is even numbered (i.e. Water on June 12th if your address is 5078). This is extremely important during hot dry summers and ensures that there is sufficient water to allow fire fighters to do their jobs when needed. Light hand watering of plants and flowers is permitted at any time. Your help is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact the Utility office at 786-7086. Thank you.

All city-owned water hydrants are flushed once each year, either in the spring or the fall depending on location. Water Utility Crews will be performing maintenance within the water system and will be flushing hydrants. The Water Main Flushing program is designed to remove natural minerals that sometimes collect in the bottom of water mains and make sure that hydrants are operating correctly. This operation may cause a temporary discoloration in your water supply. By allowing your water to run for a short period of time, the problem should clear itself. Please be assured, although the water may be discolored, it is safe for human use. If you have any questions in regard to this matter, please contact the Utility Office Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. at 262-786-7086. Thank you for your patience.
Hydrant Flushing dates for 2022:
- April 11th to May 13th
