Heavy rains cause problems for the Town of Campbell

Rain backs up lift station

Lift station overflows in Town of Campbell

TOWN OF CAMPBELL, Wis. (WKBT) - Rain showers over the weekend are causing problems for the Town of Campbell.

The town believes heavy rain caused its lift station to overflow early Monday morning. The lift station is responsible for moving sewage from one place to another. If the station floods, the sewage will then back up causing the wells holding the sewage to overflow.

Luckily for residents, Campbell's utility department keeps a close eye on those wells.

"Our utility guys, part of the their routine is monitoring the lift stations every day. So seven days a week, 365 days a year. They caught it this morning, noticed they had an issue and got a hold of the resources to get after it," said Utility Supervisor, Bob Wolfert.

The utility department says it could be a couple of days until the station is fixed.
