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.
