South Street Tree Removal
The Fall River Village Boad contracted with K&B Tree Service from Beaver Dam to remove trees on South Street. Approximately 25 trees were removed, the stumps ground, and the grass areas repaired. These trees reached maturity and began to decay over the past few years. They became overgrown to the point that branches were interfering with overhead wires and roots were disturbing the sidewalk, curb and gutter. Removal of these trees eliminated the danger of falling dead branches and prevents further damage to infrastructure in the area.
!!! 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.
