Final meter readings are required when there is a change of owner or occupant (if the tenant is responsible for the payment). Request a change of service or call 262-279-6039 Ext 2 for an appointment for the reading. The final meter reading is necessary so that the resident receives an accurate final billing and the Village has the new owner or occupant's information on file.
With so many household products being marketed as "flushable", the potential of using a toilet as a trash can has increased dramatically. While most items can indeed be "flushable" (including items we recover like cell phones, golf balls, keys and aquarium dwellers), they do pose issues with the pumps and equipment that are maintained by the utility.
Pump clogs and the subsequent clean out is one of the most unpleasant jobs that one can imagine, BUT fortunately with your help they can be almost entirely avoided.
Please remember that although there are many things that are truly "flushable", what they are not is degradable or pumpable.
ELIMINATING FATS, OIL AND GREASE (FOG) FROM THE COLLECTION SYSTEM
Customers typically don't focus much on what's being sent down the drain, until it's too late. Fats, oil and grease or FOG are materials that pose a long term issue to the health and functionality of private sewer laterals and Utility infrastructure.
Homeowners can follow these simple practices to reduce FOG in the sewers:
Statewide Reduction EffortsThe DNR works to reduce chlorides at the source through permitting programs for municipalities and industries. These measures include tuning up or replacing water softeners, identifying significant chloride contributors and finding reductions, process efficiencies or improvements and instituting sewer use ordinances.

Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR)
Annual Water Quality Reporting
The 1996 Amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) created a public information requirement for municipal water systems. The Village of Bloomfield Utility is required to annually publish a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) and to make a copy available to all water utility customers.
The report provides the results of water quality testing on the water system, along with information about the water supply from the most recently completed operational year. A summary of the contaminants tested are provided along with educational information regarding any potential health effects they may have on consumers.
Why is Hydrant Flushing Done?
The Bloomfield Utility flushes hydrants annually to make sure they are in good working order and to help flush sediment out of the distribution system, which delivers clean, safe water to our community. It ensures adequate water flow is available to fire fighters, residents and businesses.
If you notice flushing in your area, you may see discoloration in your faucet water. If reduced pressure is experienced after flushing, you may have to clean the aerators on your house faucets.
Sometimes hydrant flushing can make the water temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains get stirred up. There is no health hazard associated with discolored water. Water is safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, however it may stain laundry.
Yes. The Utility is required to test for contaminants on a schedule established by the Wisconsin DNR, Safe Drinking Water Act and the EPA to ensure the water is safe for consumption by customers. Standards for iron are enforced for aesthetic consideration only (taste, color, smell) and although the water may become
discolored during flushing operations, it is not harmful for use.
