Public Works – Sewer and Water Utility

Public Works – Sewer and Water Utility

Mission Statement

The Water Utility will continue to provide safe bacteria free, potable water at an affordable cost. The Wastewater Utility will continue to seek out rainwater infiltrating into the system, by televising a section of our system and recording those records on a yearly basis, reducing treatment costs. This effort will provide additional treatment capacity keeping our rates as low as possible. It will also provide the utility with information on aging sewer mains, so we can correct problems before they happen.  Our mission is to provide these services in an efficient and cost effective way to maintain reasonable rates while continually planning, maintaining, and upgrading our facilities to meet current and future needs.


  • The Sewer/Water Utility will continue to replace old underground piping without borrowing large amounts of money to help keep costs low. Berlin has about 4 miles of 4” water mains; these mains don’t provide the flow for adequate fire protection, and will be replaced as streets are improved.
  • The Sewer/Water Utility will continue to update the GIS mapping system, to provide better locating capabilities and historical data for the future. Records of aging water mains and main breaks are kept on the GIS also, to help determine when to replace mains
  • The Sewer/Water Utility will require all lead lines to be replaced once it is discovered that there is an existing lead line during projects or repairs.
  • To constantly be improving our billing system to accommodate the customer to the best of our ability.

Flushable vs. "flushable"

What’s in a wipe? The truth about flushable products. What’s in a wipe

In July of 2022, the City of Berlin Utilities Department tested for PFAS in our three wells with assistance by the DNR. The results came back with all three wells testing NO PFAS present.

Test Results

What are PFAS? Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances.

  • PFAS are widely used, long lasting chemicals, components of which break down very slowly over time.
  • Because of their widespread use and their persistence in the environment, many PFAS are found in the blood of people and animals all over the world and are present at low levels in a variety of food products and in the environment.
  • PFAS are found in water, air, fish, and soil at locations across the nation and the globe.
  • Scientific studies have shown that exposure to some PFAS in the environment may be linked to harmful health effects in humans and animals.
  • There are thousands of PFAS chemicals, and they are found in many different consumer, commercial, and industrial products. This makes it challenging to study and assess the potential human health and environmental risks.
