Sturgeon Bay – The City of Sturgeon Bay will receive up to $750,000 through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program administered by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to replace private galvanized or iron-alloy water-service lines.
The Sturgeon Bay Common Council approved a resolution last week authorizing a financial-assistance agreement with the DNR in the form of a loan made to the city, for which all the principal will be forgiven. Jeff Hoffman, operations manager with Sturgeon Bay Utilities, said what amounts to a grant will cover the cost of replacing private laterals for utility customers free of charge.
Hoffman said areas of the city with homes constructed around 1950 or earlier typically had galvanized water laterals installed.
