Water and Sewer Utilities

At the City of Badger, we are committed to providing safe, high quality water services to our community, while maintaining a standard of excellence in customer service and environmental conservation.  We also provide sanitary sewer services.  Feel free to call our office if you have any questions or need assistance with any matters related to the water we provide!


Lead Service Line Inventory

The city is mandated by the EPA and IDNR to complete an inventory of all water connections in the city.  A form was mailed previously to each address.  If you have not already done so, please take time to complete the questionnaire (found below under Relevant Documents) and return it to City Hall. If you have any questions, please call City Hall at (515)545-4514.  It is very important that we get each water service in the city inventoried as soon as possible.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Frequently Asked Questions

How could I have used this much water?

You could possibly have a leaky toilet or faucet that's difficult to detect. Check for an outside faucet that is leaking or not turned off. Just call the office and we'll work with you to solve the problem.

My bill is past due can I get an extension?

If your bill is not paid by the due date (15th) a penalty is charged and the late notice that is mailed to you will give you the final date of payment prior to disconnection, usually the last week of the month.  Call City Hall with questions or to discuss payment options.

What do I do if I am experiencing low pressure?

Check your meter and the surrounding area for possible leaks. Next, call our office and report low pressure for your area.

Why do I have a previous balance when I know I sent in my payment?

We may have received it after the due date or we may not have received it at all. Call our office and we will help you solve the problem.

Why is my water discolored?

A repair could have been completed recently allowing air to enter the line, causing a milky look. Call City Hall with questions.
