Permits & Ordinances

NEW Water operates under permits issued by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR).

NEW Water is allowed to discharge treated wastewater to the Fox River under the guidance and conditions of our Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permit. The permit contains limits on what the District can discharge, monitoring and reporting requirements, and other provisions to protect public health and the environment.

NEW Water has developed a Sewer Use Ordinance to establish rules regulating users of NEW Water’s sewerage system, explain billing procedures, and provide penalties for violations of these rules. The rules apply to every person within NEW Water’s jurisdiction.
