Sanitary & Storm Sewers

Sanitary & Storm Sewer Maintenance

The Village maintains a regular sewer maintenance program. Sewers are flushed on a regular schedule and sewer lines are checked/sealed on a rotating schedule and as-needed basis.

Sewer Backups

Unfortunately, sewer backups occur from time to time. In most cases the backups are due to foreign bodies in the sewer lines, such as tree roots or paper products improperly flushed into the sewer system. This is why the sewer system is regularly maintained and checked on a specific schedule by Village crews. However, if you happen to notice a sewer backup at your residence it is important to notify the Village quickly.

Contact the Department of Public Works between the hours of 7 am and 3:30 pm, or contact the Brown Deer Police Department at any other time.
