Case Study: Green Bay Water Utility

Van Rite Plumbing helps keep our drinking water safe from hazardous contaminants

Van Rite Plumbing has successfully worked with the Green Bay Water Utility for many years. Green Bay Water is Wisconsin’s third-largest drinking water provider and relied on us to aggressively remove and replace lead services in the City of Green Bay between 2016 and 2020. Funding to replace privately-owned lead affected lines was provided by grants at no cost the homeowner. Van Rite Plumbing can install new water and sanitary services within one day, and homeowners experience minimal disruption. The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works is responsible for overseeing the permits and inspections related to this work and has appreciated the diligence and knowledge required to do the job well.

“Van Rite Plumbing has been excellent to work with, complying with all local codes, following safety protocols and working effectively with the city of Green Bay and local homeowners. This work is critical in maintaining healthy drink water for our residents and we appreciate the service provided by Van Rite Plumbing,” says Steven Grenier, director of Green Bay Public Works.
