Water, Sewer & Storm Utilities
The Union Grove Water, Sewer and Storm Water Utilities are self-financing enterprises owned by the Village of Union Grove and regulated by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, the EPA and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Day-to-day operation of the utilities are carried out by four utility operators, managed by the Director of Public Works with oversight from the Water, Wastewater, Storm Water and Streets Committee and Village Administrator.
May 19, 2020 – Notice is hereby given pursuant of s. NR 210.21 (5) that the Village of Union Grove Wastewater Treatment Facility experienced a treatment facility overflow (TFO) event from 6:00 am on May 18th, 2020 until 9:00 am on May 18th, 2020. 5,000 gallons of water overflowed the stormwater storage basin overflow pipe and reached the West Branch of the Root River Canal. The TFO is the result of excessive precipitation on already saturated ground which in-flowed and infiltrated into the sanitary collection sewer system, hydraulically exceeding the design capacity of the wastewater treatment plant. Village staff responded to the high flow conditions which mitigated the impacts to public health, the environment, and property. The TFO event was reported to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources pursuant of NR 210.21 (4).

In accordance with the Village’s “cross connection control program” (Municipal Code Chapter 106 – Division 4) as mandated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WI DNR 810.15 Chapter-Comm. 81, 82, 84), the Utility provides periodic inspections for “cross connections” of the water supply. The purpose of the inspection is to identify any connections or potential connections of contaminant sources with the water system in your home. Cross-control inspections are now taking place at the time of water meter replacement. Click here to review important cross-connection information for property owners.
Consumer Confidence Report
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires drinking water utilities to provide an annual Consumer Confidence Report to help consumers understand where their drinking water comes from so they can make informed decisions about their health and protection of the environment. We’re pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets Federal and State requirements. You can see the results on our latest reports by clicking here.
