This is your opportunity to ask any questions you have about the safety of our drinking water and the effects of PFAS on our environment. Spanish and Hmong interpreters will be at the meeting.

MWU will temporarily rely on other well facilities to serve the Well 15 area as it waits for a recommended PFAS standard from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The recommendation is expected this spring.
