Groundwater Infiltration

Groundwater Infiltration of the Public Sanitary Sewer Sump Pump & Lateral Grant Programs

If your home is currently a part of the ground water infiltration sump pump and lateral grant programs, please be aware that if you chose not to participate in the program an enforcement action of three possible steps will take place.

    This is a very serious public health problem, as well as an expensive utility problem that needs to be addressed. The Village is committed to resolving this problem as efficiently and economically as possible. With your help, we are able to solve the problem of sanitary sewer failures and increasing sewer charges together. If you have any questions or would like to schedule and appointment, call the Utility Department at 262.925.6700.

    Illegal Sump Pump Connection Reminder
    Please be reminded that Section 28.008 B.5 of the Village Municipal Code states that all residential sump pump discharge shall be directed to the street yard, natural drainage way, or approved storm sewer system so as to not saturate, accumulate, or damage the subject property or adjacent properties. Residents found violating this ordinance are subject to severe fines. If you have any questions about whether or not your sump pump is discharging properly, please call the Public Works Department at 262.925.6700.
