Whitewater, Wis. March 30, 2022 – Inventory of Unknown Public and Private Side Water Laterals

Residents of the City of Whitewater may notice City employees over the next several months as they begin to inventory the public and private side of water laterals. In December of 2021, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) – the federal regulation designed to control lead and copper in drinking water. Those revisions require water utilities to create an inventory of public and private service laterals by 2024. Therefore, the City of Whitewater is beginning the process of identifying undocumented service laterals on the public and private side within the City. Examples of materials may include copper, iron, plastic or lead.

A City employee will be locating and flagging water curb stop boxes, typically located in the terrace. Please see diagram below. Other utilities (gas, electric and fiber optics) will be flagging the same areas. After all utilities have been located, the Water Utility will return with the necessary equipment to excavate a small area around the water service box to identity the water lateral material. Please note, that all disturbed areas will be restored to the original condition.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Superintendent of Water Utility, Jim Bergner at 262-458-2803 or Laterals
