OAK CREEK – February 14th, 2006 – The Oak Creek Water & Sewer Utility today announced plans to add office and garage space to its existing location at 170 West Drexel Ave. Total cost of the construction, which is scheduled to begin in May, will be paid for with funds saved by the utility since 1999.


“Tremendous growth within our service area has driven demand for utility services,” said Steven Yttri, utility general manager. “Sales, customers, service area and assets all have doubled since the existing facility was constructed 21 years ago.”


The project will add 3,900 square feet of office space and 4,500 square feet of garage space to the existing facility, which currently has 4,000 square feet of office space and 10,000 square feet of garage space. Total cost for the addition is estimated to be around $2 million.


During construction, temporary parking will be available by entering the east driveway. The west driveway (the normal customer entrance) will reopen after the project is complete.


The Oak Creek Water and Sewer Utility produces some of the highest quality drinking water in the nation. Always seeking new ways to improve, utility employees conduct thousands of water quality tests annually to ensure the cleanest, safest drinking water possible flows to customers. In fact, the utility test nearly three times more than the 970 quality controls required by government regulations. The utlity is proud to announce its water meets and exceeds all federal and state drinking water health standards.
