  • Gas
    West Bend Municipal Gas
    Natural gas is provided through Clayton Energy and transported to the city over Northern Gas Company lines to the city gate (TBS). The City's Natural Gas System is looped and operates at approximately 20 PSI. The system is cathodically protected which provides added protection to the wrapped steel lines. The line size and pressure indicates that the City could handle a major expansion and in such case would not constitute any inadequacies.

  • Water
    West Bend Municipal Utilities
    The city's water supply is provided by four deep wells and treated at the water plant before being pumped to the town. The construction of the current water facility was completed in 1985. Upgrades to the system continue as well as annual inspections, which enables the city to remain compliant with DNR regulations.

  • Sewer
    West Bend Municipal Utilities
    Sewer Main is located on the west side of each of the lots. The construction of the new wastewater treatment facility was completed in 1998. The new system replaced an existing mechanical treatment plant that was 54 years old. With the new site the City of West Bend is able to remain compliant with DNR stipulations.

  • Communications
    Northwest Telephone Cooperative Association
    Northwest Telephone Cooperative Association provides telephone, cable television, and Internet services. Founded in 1963, the cooperative is based in Havelock, Iowa, with an office in West Bend. Starting in 1994, Northwest began providing Internet service to the area, and now offers both dial-up and high-speed broadband Internet, as well as networking, servers, web hosting and design, telephone systems, and digital cellular service.
