Suburbs will rely on water from lake
Green Bay area communities disagree on who will offer service
Gannett Wisconsin Newspapers

DE PERE - Green Bay’s suburbs voted Wednesday to buy Lake Michigan drinking water to replace their dwindling supply of radium-tainted groundwater.

But the village of Ashwaubenon and the six-member communities of the Central Brown County Water Authority agreed to disagree about where they’ll get the water.

The Water Authority unanimously voted to accept an offer that will make it a wholesale customer of the Manitowoc Public Utilities just hours after the Village Board in Ashwaubenon, a former authority member, voted late Tuesday evening to accept a competing offer from Green Bay.

Green Bay had sought a deal with a seven-member Water Authority that included Ashwaubenon, and the Water Authority had strained to find a solution that would allow it to keep Ashwaubenon among its members.

Ashwaubenon is the biggest municipal water user in Brown County after Green Bay, and would have comprised about 40 percent of the Water Authority’s annual volume had it remained a member.
