Central Brown County Water Authority
MPU partnered with the Central Brown County Water Authority (CBCWA) to provide clean, safe water to the city of DePere, the villages of Allouez, Bellevue and Howard, and the towns of Lawrence and Ledgeview. The agreement, dated July 20, 2004, assures that for the six communities served by the CBCWA, water quality and quantity will no longer be a concern. And Manitowoc water customers benefit with rates that will be more stable due to the increased customer base, and state-of-the-art treatment facilities – financed by the CBCWA – to meet its customer demand.
The partnership resulted in new water pumping, filtration, and storage systems at MPU, and a 65-mile water transmission pipeline from Manitowoc to the six communities, delivering 8.2 million gallons of fresh water each day – a $106 million investment for the CBCWA.
