The employees of the Fall River Public Works department are dedicated to providing safe and efficient services to village residents. Public works employees maintain our streets and parks, provide leaf, grass and brush collection and operate and maintain the Lazy Lake Dam. In addition, the Public Works crew operates and maintains the Village's water and wastewater utilities.
South Street Tree Removal
The Fall River Village Boad has contracted with K&B Tree Service from Beaver Dam to remove trees on South Street. Approximately 25 trees will be removed, the stumps will be ground, and the grass areas will be repaired. These trees have reached maturity and have begun to decay over the past few years. They have become overgrown to the point that branches are interfering with overhead wires and roots are disturbing the sidewalk, curb and gutter. Removal of these trees will eliminate the danger of falling dead branches and will prevent further damage to infrastructure in the area. K&B Tree Service will begin work as soon as possible. Stump removal and final landscape restoration will be completed when the weather permits.
It is a top priority of the Fall River Public Works Department to keep Village streets safe for travel throughout the winter months. Residents can help make plowing and salting operations more efficient and effective by following the Village winter parking regulations and, whenever possible, avoiding parking on Village streets anytime during inclement weather. In addition, snow from a driveway or sidewalk may not be deposited on the street. If you encounter an unsafe situation on Village streets, please contact the Fall River Public Works Department.
It is also greatly appreciated if residents would clear snow from fire hydrants on or near their property.
!!! The Fall River Sewer Utility Needs Your Help !!!
Recently, the Fall River Sewer Utility has experienced an increase in wastewater pumping station malfunctions due to “disposable” cleaning items and wipes entering the wastewater stream. Many cleaning products labeled “disposable” or even “flushable” can cause problems for homeowners and the Village. Disinfecting wipes, Swiffer mop refills, baby wipes, and other products made from similar materials should be disposed of in the trash- never flushed down a toilet. These items do not dissolve or break down after being flushed and can clog household sewer pipes, resulting in an expensive and messy repair and clean-up for a property owner. If these items find their way into the Village’s sewer system, they can clog pipes and pumps in the Village’s sewer pumping stations. This leads to expensive repairs and potential interruptions in sewer service.
Please help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the Village’s wastewater system by disposing of these products properly: in the trash.

A cross connection is an unprotected direct (or potential) connection between drinking water piping and a contamination source. This can be as simple as a garden hose that is submerged in a swimming pool, a bucket of detergent, or other contaminated water. Other examples are supply lines connected to boilers, process equipment, or bottom-fed tanks. Under certain conditions, cross connections can allow tainted water to flow backward through the piping system and contaminate drinking water.
These unprotected cross connections are prohibited. The Wisconsin Rural Water Association has made available a brochure explaining what cross connections are and how they can be avoided.
