Every day, the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility provides high-quality water and sewer service to the community. We also find new and better ways to manage the land, water, and systems we use today, so we can lay a foundation for a bright future for all of us.
The Utility is underway in its long-range systematic approach to replacing the City’s aging water infrastructure. The goal of the initiative, Refresh Evansville, is to replace multiple miles of water line each year.
Fats, oils and grease (FOG) is one of the most common causes of sewer backups. It becomes a problem when food scraps, meat fats, dairy products and other oil-based foods are washed or flushed down drains.
The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) provides high-quality, safe and dependable water and sewer services to more than 63,000 customers in Vanderburgh County and parts of Gibson, Posey and Warrick counties. The Utility also manages the City’s street sweeping and trash and recycling contracts. EWSU meets or exceeds all State and Federal Safe Drinking Water Act standards while protecting land and water resources for future generations.
