Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water.
View the Annual Drinking Water Quality Reports for more information about the quality of our drinking water. Our water is safe and meets federal and state requirements. In the report, we attempt to balance your right to know against the sheer volume of information that we could provide. If some information appears complex, it’s because drinking water is a complex business. If you have any questions about this report, please contact Bill Hoffman at 715-661-3778.
Questions about your water/sewer bill or change of accounts should be directed to the Clerk/Treasurer's office located in City Hall at 715-762-2436.
We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings of the Board of Public Works. The Board of Public Works meets at 4:30 p.m. on the first Monday of each month. The meetings are held at the Park Falls City Hall located at 400 4th Avenue South. The bottom line is this: Our water is safe to drink. We have NO water quality violations and our water quality meets, or is better than, state and federal standards.
A friendly reminder to all Park Falls residents!
It has been brought to our attention that several refuse and recycling carts are being left out on the curbside/roadway for an excessive period of time. This is unfortunately causing issues with plowing efforts in the City of Park Falls and can cause safety issues for motorists.
Just a friendly reminder that all receptacles and containers for refuse that are placed on the curb of a public street for collection as designated by the collector shall be placed behind the curb of the public street not earlier than twenty-four (24) hours before the regular collection time and shall be removed from the curbside collection point within twenty-four (24) hours after the regular collection time.
Let’s all work together to keep our streets safe and clear of obstacles that hinder our efforts of snow removal! Thank you for your cooperation.
