Utility disconnections will be allowed again

On July 25, Wisconsin state regulators will be lifting a temporary moratorium that prevented utilities from disconnecting water, electricity, and heat for customers who couldn't afford to pay during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a report from Wisconsin Public Radio.

Disconnection notices can be issued again starting July 15. The Public Service Commission had issued an order on March 24 barring the disconnections and collection of late fees.
