Municipal Utility

Evansville Water & Light


The City of Evansville Municipal Utility provides water to nearly 2,000 customers and electric to nearly 4,000 customers.  The City operates three wells, one tower, and many miles of water line to service all of our residents in Evansville.  The Electric Utility purchases power from WPPI and distributes electricity to Evansville residents and the surrounding area.  

In modern times it is easy to take for granted the idea of a public water and electric supply, but that has not always been the case.  Starting in 1885 there were many proposals for the creation and installation of a public water system for health benefits, fire protection and industrial growth.  These proposals did not pass the village board at the time and they continued to use cisterns throughout the community.  At the same time electricity in the community was provided by Baker Manufacturing.  In July of 1901 the residents of Evansville voted to create City run water and electric utility.  Now we have reliable water and electric supply for all of our residents in Evansville and we shall continue to provide quality and reliable service for many years to come.
