The City of Brewer Water Department will begin its Spring Flushing program on Monday April 27, 2015 and continue through Friday May 29, 2015.

 

The flushing process may cause some temporary discoloration of the water customers receive, but is essential in maintaining a clean distribution system. The Brewer Water Department would like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during the process.

Rates

Maintaining a reasonable cost for water service is the utmost priority for our department. The Brewer Water Department has held rates steady since the last rate decrease of 7% in 2008, despite rising costs and aging infrastructure.
