Water Main Break: City’s Statement On Low Water Pressure; No Boil Advisory In Effect

From the City of South Milwaukee …

At 4:46pm on April 27, 2023, the South Milwaukee Water/Wastewater Department became aware of a 20-inch broken water main located near 10th and Michigan Avenues. This caused a portion of City of South Milwaukee households to have low water pressure. By 5:05pm, messages were posted on the City’s website and our social media accounts regarding this matter.

At this time, no boil advisory is in effect.

Water tower levels and water pressure have returned to normal. Residents experiencing low water pressure are encouraged to contact the Water/Wastewater Department. Those experiencing discolored water should flush the water line at the lowest point in their home.

Businesses and restaurants may use the water as they typically would. Any food prepared with tap water yesterday is safe for consumption.

Service crews are working to repair the damage on Michigan Avenue. To keep yourself safe and avoid impeding this work, please avoid the 10th and Michigan Avenue area until further notice.

The Water/Wastewater Department has remained in close contact with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The City of South Milwaukee’s Emergency Management team has also been monitoring the situation.

We appreciate the aid of the Wisconsin DNR and the Oak Creek Water Utility.

For further updates, monitor the City Website at http://www.smwi.org, the City’s Facebook page, or contact the Water/Wastewater Department at 414-768-8070.
