Sanitary Sewer Overflow in Peshtigo
04/19/2019- Peshtigo’s Department of Publics Work crew is monitoring a sanitary sewer overflow situation. DPW personnel first discovered the wastewater on the ground and flowing out of a Peshtigo River Crossing structure on April 18th. The overflow is located on a wooded area on private property and the area impacted by wastewater has been cordoned off. The City’s DPW will keep an eye on the situation and are reminding residents they can assist in minimizing flows to the sanitary sewer by directing all sump pump discharges to the storm sewer or the ground and not into the sanitary system.
