Notice is hereby given pursuant of s. NR 210.21 (5) that the City of Brillion Wastewater Treatment Plant experienced a Treatment Facility Overflow (TFO) and a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) event from 11:30 p.m. May 3rd  and is continuing at the time of this notice 11:30 a.m May 4th 2018.

The TFO and SSO is the result of excessive precipitation on already saturated ground which inflowed and infiltrated into the sanitary collection sewer system hydraulically exceeding the design capacity of the wastewater treatment plant.  Plant staff responded to the high flow conditions which mitigated the impacts to public health, the environment, and property.   The TFO and SSO events were reported to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources pursuant of NR 210.21 (4).

The City had to bypass sanitary wastewater on to the ground from the main lift station located at Peters Park as well as a manhole located at the entrance to Peters Park along Glenview.  The Park will be closed until city crews can clean up the area.
