Flood Update: Drinking Water

August 23, 2018 9:00 PM

A message from the City of Madison Water Utility:

The drinking water in Madison is safe. So far, Madison Water Utility operations have not been affected by flooding.  The water is continuously monitored at every well to ensure its safety. Water is also tested at various points in the distribution system.

The city has one well that could be at risk as waters continue to rise. Madison Water Utility will be sandbagging the municipal well at 101 N. Livingston St. and will shut the facility down tomorrow as a precaution.

The utility will rely on other well facilities to supply drinking water to the area.

MWU crews will also be sandbagging the Madison Water Utility Operations Center at 110 S. Paterson St. The facility does not distribute water. It is the hub for main break, maintenance and repair crews and equipment.
