New Ulm Public Utilities does not allow any permanent structure to be built over an electric or natural gas service. If a utility is found under an existing structure, it is the customer’s responsibility to pay for the re-location of the services. If you are planning to build a structure on your property, it is your responsibility as the homeowner to contact New Ulm Public Utilities Electric Department at (507) 233-2110 to have your service location checked. It may be necessary to relocate your service, or a new service may need to be installed. If utility work needs to be done, you will be instructed to stop at the New Ulm Public Utilities office located at 310 1st North Street to fill out a service application. Service applications can also be found this website by simply clicking on the Service Application icon.
