What's New at Cudahy DPW

The City of Cudahy experienced a sanitary overflow at 1:40am, Friday, September 13th, 2019. It occurred at the City's College Avenue lift station. The overflow was a result of a WE Energies power outage and the large amount of clear water coming into the pump station. The station is 60 years old and is not equipped with a back-up generator. This required crews to manually hook up a generator to get the lift station operational. The overflow which came out of a manhole in a grass area near the lift station lasted about 45 minutes. We believe that approximately 4,500 gallons of very diluted effluent surcharged into the grass area. The City is currently working on plans to replace the aged lifted station.

  • E-Waste Disposal available at the Drop Off SiteThe City of Cudahy DPW has partnered with Goodwill Industries to begin collection & disposal of E-Waste at the City Drop Off site on a regular basis. What this means is that residential property owners who pay a recycling cart fee can drop off electronic waste (computers, TV's, etc.) at the City's Drop Off Site during Drop Off Site hours. There will be no need to use a pass if you are only disposing of electronics;  

  • Storm Outfalls & Lake Michigan Water Level - The City's Storm Water Utility owns and maintains several large storm water outfalls that discharge into Lake Michigan. Due to the extremely high water levels, the discharge pipes are filling with sand. The sand affects the capacity of the pipe and in heavy rain, can cause backflow and flooding issues. The Department is taking steps to keep these discharges clear however, that requires access from Sheridan Park. The Department is working with Milwaukee County Parks on those access points. So you may see some clearing of brush & small trees down near the water. This is necessary so that the City can get the necessary equipment to those discharge pipes to clear them;
