Sanitary Sewer Overflow Again Reported in Peshtigo
05/14/2019- Peshtigo’s Public Works Department is dealing with another sanitary sewer overflow. DPW crews observed wastewater on the ground and flowing out of a Peshtigo River crossing structure on the west side of the community last Thursday. The overflow is located on a wooded area on private property and the impacted location has caution tape installed to limit access. Personnel will continue to monitor the situation at the sanitary sewer river crossing structure. The city is again reminding residents they can assist in minimizing flows to the sanitary sewer by directing all sump pump discharge to the storm sewer or the ground and not into the sanitary sewer system.
