Severe Weather Causes Sewage Backups In Some Mayville Homes

(Mayville) Heavy rains from last Tuesday’s severe weather has caused sewage backups in some Mayville homes. Mayor Rob Boelk tells Today’s TMJ4 that the city needed to dump sewage into the Rock River to prevent further damage to their wastewater plant, which is handling ten times the average amount of water that day. Boelk says homeowners who are experiencing hardship due to the recent flooding can contact the city’s treasurer for possible assistance. He says Mayville is exploring low interest loan options. The Mayor is also reminding residents that today is the last day the department of public works will be collecting bulk flood damage items placed at the curb. Boelk says any items remaining will be the responsibility of the homeowner.
