On August 4, 2016 the Village of Wrightstown, through a cooperative effort with the City of Green Bay and the Village of Ashwaubenon began receiving its potable drinking water from and through the Green Bay Water Utility. This unique arrangement allows Wrightstown to receive water from the Green Bay Water Utility through the Village of Ashwaubenon through a 15 mile pipeline running from Green Bay through the Village of Ashwaubenon and the Town of Lawrence in southern Brown County.
Green Bay obtains its potable drinking water from intake pipes located in Lake Michigan just north of the City of Kewaunee. The Lake Michigan water is then pumped to Green Bay via a 27 mile pipeline running from a pumping station on the shore of Lake Michigan to Green Bay for filtration, treatment and distributioin. In addition to supplying potable drinking water to the City of Green Bay, the Green Bay Water Utility also provides potable drinking water to the Village of Ashwaubenon, parts of the Village of Hobart and the Town of Scott.
The attorneys at VANDE CASTLE, S.C., as general counsel for the Green Bay Water Commission and Green Bay Water Utility, with the assistance of the management and staffs at the Green Bay Water Utility, the Village of Ashwaubenon and the Village of Wrightstown, negotiated, drafted and prepared the complex wholesale water service, interconnection and administrative agreements that allowed the Wrightstown project to take place. The agreements prepared by VANDE CASTLE, S.C. for this project were only the second such agreements ever authorized and approved by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.
Through this project the Village of Wrightstown will have a quality, safe and secure fresh drinking water source for its residents, business and visitors. The attorneys and staff at VANDE CASTLE, S.C. are proud to have been a part of this project.
