The Reedsburg Utility Commission is continually seeking ways to maintain low water rates, so it is important for us to maintain minimal water losses. This requires preventative maintenance programs, which includes locating water leaks, replacing leaky water mains and service lines. The Utility is also dedicated to conduct proper upgrades when necessary, to the mains, wells, reservoirs and meters.
