Water Utility Cross Connection Information & Survey

Providing and maintaining a safe public water supply is a priority of both the Village of Rothschild and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). Our goal is to obtain access to your residence to perform a cross-connection survey, and at the same time, perform any required maintenance on your water meter.

This survey takes approximately one (1) hour and is required by Wisconsin Administrative Code sections chapter SPS 382.41, NR810.15, and Village of Rothschild ordinance 9.02.13 and 9.02.13.5. We are required to perform these inspections once every twenty (20) years for residential services and more frequently for other customer classes (business and commercial).

During the survey we will provide information and a brochure explaining what a cross-connection is and we will be checking for state-approved devices on all plumbing items, including, but not limited to: utility sinks, inside and outside hose connections, and hot water boiler systems. We will not be going into your bathroom or kitchens.

If a hazard is determined, the utility inspector will advise what the best suited device is for the correction. State approved cross-connection devices are available at local hardware stores and plumbers.

When you receive your notice (door hanger), please contact the Rothschild Waterworks within ten (10) days to schedule your appointment. We welcome any questions you may have regarding this program. We can be reached at 715-359-5637. Office hours are Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Prior to your appointment, please be sure there is a clear path to the water meter and any other locations that may require inspection.

Sewer Problems & Flushable Wipes

WARNING

The Rothschild Water/Sewer Utility is Warning All Customers that the use of "Flushable Wipes" may cause sewer backups. We strongly advise against using these products. While manufactures advertise these as biodegradable, it takes significant time to breakdown the fiber bonds. Before the fiber bonds breakdown this "cloth like" material can create blockage in sewer pipes that will lead to sewer back-ups.

If the backup is a result of a plug in the customers' lateral, a plumber or someone who specializes in cleaning sewer laterals can be called to open the pipe.

The Utility accepts No Responsibility for sewer backups.

Use of "Flushable Wipes" is NOT ADVISED!

Rib Mountain Metropolitan Sewerage District

The Rib Mountain Metropolitan Sewerage District (RMMSD), while located in the Town of Rib Mountain, is not part of the government of the Town of Rib Mountain. Instead it is a single purpose municipal Corp. whose sole duty is to be a regional waste water treatment facility in accordance with chapter 200 of the Wisconsin Statues. This facility was built in 1985 to treat the sanitary waste from the Village of Weston, the Village of Rothschild, the Village of Kronenwetter and the Rib Mountain Sanitary District. The Rib Mountain Metropolitan Sewerage District is governed by a 5 member commission. Visit their website at www.ribmountainmetro.org.
