Annual Drinking Water Quality Report East

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report West



Did you know that in an average household, leaks account for nearly 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year? In addition, 10% of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more daily!

Many common leaks are easy to fix, and most households can save an average of 10% on their water bill by fixing them.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) urges everyone to locate and fix leaks during Fix a Leak Week or any other time throughout the year!

Here are some quick ways to track down leaks:

• Check your recent water bills to look for any spikes in water usage. If your water use is a lot higher than a previous month, you might have a leak.

• Test your toilet for any leaks by adding a few drops of food coloring to your toilet’s tank, and if any food coloring appears in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak! Just be sure to flush after the test to avoid staining your toilet.

• Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on the outside of the pipe to check for surface leaks.

To learn more about finding leaks in your home or business and easy ways to fix them, visit the DNR’s Water Conservation and Efficiency webpage or the EPA’s Fix a Leak Week webpage.

PFAS Detections in City of Mosinee East Drinking Water System

The City of Mosinee Water Utility has conducted two rounds of sampling for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) from our drinking water system that serves the area east of the Wisconsin River. This notice is to inform you of the results and the operational changes the City has made to protect your health. The first round of sample results showed levels of PFAS above the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ (DHS) health advisory levels in one of our two operating wells. As a result, the City collected a second round of samples to confirm the PFAS levels. The City also made changes to the operations of our East Drinking Water System in an attempt to reduce PFAS to below the healthy advisory levels by running both of our wells at the same time and collecting a sample of the water from where these wells enter our water system. The results of the second round of samples confirm that the levels in one of the two operating wells is high, but that the operational changes resulted in PFAS levels below the health advisory levels in the drinking water that the City provides. The City of Mosinee will continue operating our drinking water system by running the two wells together and will routinely collect samples to verify that this plan consistently results in levels of PFAS in the municipal drinking water that remain below DHS’s health advisory levels. If future results show levels have risen above these levels, you will be notified within 30 days. A full list of the sampling results from May 4 and June 6, 2022, including the individual PFAS compounds, the reported concentrations and DHS’ recommended standards, can be found on the City’s website at We will continue to update our website following each future sampling event. The City of Mosinee would like to emphasize that the Water Utility is not in violation of any current federal or state drinking water regulations.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Mosinee City Administrator Jeff Gates at 715.693.2275 or at
