Lead testing completed by Menasha Utilities has found lead levels in some homes above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) action limit. Menasha Utilities continuously addresses this health concern and is committed to informing and educating its customers about lead.
The CIty Council approved an ordinance creating a private lead and galvanized water service lateral replacement requirement. This ordinance requires customer to replace their portion of the service at the time the Utility replaces its portion in order to protect health and safety and meet the state and federal water quality requirements.
Menasha Utilities has been awarded up to $500,000 from the Safe Drinkng Water Program for the benefit of our customers to offset the costs of the replacement of customer owned lead services. Menasha Utilities will rebate property owners ninety-five percent (95%) of the cost to replace the owner's portion of the lead service up to $2,500 if the requirements of the program are met.
