Water Pressure

As part of the new water supply project, the Waukesha Water Utility also added an elevated storage tank to address low pressure areas within the city. The Utility maintains the pressure of its system between 35 and 100 psi throughout our distribution system, which are the limits established by DNR regulations. Pressures will vary between those limits from location to location, depending on elevation and other factors such as the change of seasons and demand across the entire system.

If you are concerned about water pressure in your house, you should consult a licensed plumber to evaluate your plumbing system and if necessary, to recommend options.
