Crews will be out flushing hydrants

Columbus Utilities crews are starting their routine yearly flushing program where they are required to flush hydrants throughout the city per the DNR. Where the crews will be flushing there will be water running down the gutter and flowing into the streets. Customers may see some rusty looking water. If this is the case, please remove the screens on your faucets and let the water run until clear. If you have any questions, please call Columbus Utilities at 920-623-5912. Thank you for your cooperation.


Columbus: Nation's Best-Tasting Water


February 7, The City of Columbus Wisconsin won best tasting water in the United States! National Rural Water Association has been conducting it's Washington DC Water Rally where rural folks meet their Representatives and Senators and ask that they support rural America Water and Wastewater systems, the USDA Rural Development program and the Farm Bill, among other bills. This is a chance to tell our stories and show off the excellent work of our rural Operators and their successes in the water industry. Included in this Rally is the Great American Water Taste Test. This water taste test pits water from systems across the nation against each other for the chance to claim that they have the best tasting water in the United States. After judging elements which included color, clarity, bouquet, and of course, taste, Columbus Wisconsin was chosen as the system with the best tasting water. Congratulations to Columbus Wisconsin! Jake Tanner and his crew have done a great job and truly represents the Wisconsin way.
