The Appleton Water Utility provides safe, abundant drinking water to the City of Appleton, Waverly Sanitary District, the Town of Grand Chute, and the Village of Sherwood. The utility is a self-financed enterprise owned by the City of Appleton. Appleton water meets federal and state health-protection standards.

The Appleton Water Treatment Facility treats Lake Winnebago water to protect the public health with a multiple-step process that removes illness-causing micro-organisms and contaminants. The water is lime softened, and filtered through granular activated carbon for control of taste and odors. Membrane ultra-filtration removes additional particles, microorganisms and contaminants. Fluoride is added for dental health. Chlorine disinfection ensures safe, high quality drinking water throughout the distribution system and to your faucets.
