Our Community

Home About Our Community

We are committed to the Brainerd Lakes Area, because we are from the lakes area. We care about this community and the people who live and work here. Brainerd Public Utilities has been providing services to our community since 1892

As a public entity, we’re mindful of our commitment to our ratepayers and must follow state statutes regarding sponsorships.  For these reasons BPU does not sponsor specific or individual groups.  Our sponsorships are limited to community-wide events and functions with education and awareness at their core that can be attended and enjoyed by all BPU customers.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer.
