IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Lead Service Line Replacement Requirements Not Met for Brillion Waterworks
We are required to complete actions associated with lead service line replacement as our system experienced an action level exceedance after corrosion control treatment was installed. The requirements included removing 7% of lead service lines. We did not complete this requirement by September 30th, 2018.
What precautions should be taken at this time?
Let the water run from the tap before using it for drinking or cooking any time the water in a faucet has gone unused for more than 6 hours. Do not cook with, or drink water from the hot water tap.
What was the cause of the missed lead service line replacement requirement? - Requirement was brought to the City’s attention after budget time and no money was available.
What is being done to correct the problem? - Replace lead service lines to homes. Note: Will not eliminate lead in drinking water in homes with lead lines in the home.
When will the problem be resolved? - 2019 / Ongoing pursuit of “0” lead service lines.

Facts About Sewer Backup Incidents
Sanitary sewer overflows can be caused by a number of factors. They usually involve sewer pipe blockages in either main sewer lines or service laterals (lines between buildings and the main line). Causes may include pipe breaks or cracks due to tree roots, system deterioration, insufficient system capacity due to residential or commercial growth, or construction mishaps. In homes and office plumbing systems, the main cause is accumulation of grease, tree roots, hair, or solid materials, such as disposable diapers or sanitary napkins that are too large for wastewater pipes to handle. Such materials may cause major backups in City lines as well as in residents’ lateral lines The following are preventive measures you can take to prevent sewage backup in your home.
