The North Shore Water Commission (NSWC) operates and maintains the Water Filtration Plant at 400 West Bender Road in Glendale as well as the Raw Water Pumping Station located in Whitefish Bay. The NSWC is responsible for purifying and pumping potable water to its member utilities which include Fox Point, Glendale, and Whitefish Bay. In addition, water is also provided to some areas served by Mequon Water Utility via a wholesale water agreement.
Lead and Copper Monitoring
In partnership with our member water utilities, we have selected households in Fox Point, Glendale, and Whitefish Bay to participate in our lead and copper monitoring program. Monitoring sites were selected based on stringent criteria determined by the United States Environgmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). Those households will receive a letter from the Commission describing the monitoring program as well as other information about lead and copper.

Each water utility is responsible for connecting customers to the water system, metering water use, billing, and responding to distribution problems such as main breaks. You can find out who your water utility is by checking your water bill. If you experience a water-related problem or have questions about your water bill, please contact your water utility for assistance.
