Office closure

The BRFMU office is open to the public on at our new facility at 349 S. McKinley St. (behind Walmart). Our phone lines still haven't been transferred by the phone company so the phones and fax number are not working at this time. There is a temporary number that you can try to reach us until the numbers are switched it is 715-670-7072.  A drive up drop box is in the parking lot across from the front door with the word "PAYMENTS" on the front.

The Utilities office is closed Thursday, November 25 and Friday, November 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

About Us

Founded in 1904, Black River Falls Municipal Utilities (BRFMU) is a municipally owned and operated electric, water, and sewer utility, serving more than 2,700 customers in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. We strive to provide low-cost, reliable service with a community-focused, personal touch. We are your friends and neighbors who share your values and understand your needs.

While a lot has changed over the past century, the focus of the utility has not. Today, we still offer our customers competitive electric rates - rates significantly lower than those in territories that are served by most investor-owned utilities. And, since we live and work in the community, we provide reliable energy with superior customer service. BRFMU also owns and operates a hydroelectric dam with a generation capacity of 1.47 MW, enough to power 10-12% of our customer's needs.

BRFMU also provides our customers with clean, high-quality water that meets or exceeds all state and federal standards. Our water quality and capacity are monitored every day by well-trained system operators.

Lastly, BRFMU operates the WWTP, which provides wastewater treatment for all of BRFMU customers and the Brockway Sanitary District. The City Street Department manages and maintains the sanitary sewer collection system.
