Residents in some areas of Plover are being asked to resume restricting their water use.
Plover police on Sunday issued another water restriction, saying a lift station near Roosevelt Elementary School had become “inundated with water” they believe is coming from groundwater and basements.
The village is now asking residents to limit their water use for the next 48 hours: no flushing, clothes washing, dishwashing, and bath/showers.
The restrictions “will help reduce the risk of lift station failure and subsequent risk of sewage backups into homes in this area”, the department’s Facebook page said.
Plover Deputy Fire Chief Ken Voss said multiple departments from the village were working to find the source of the water and would be talking to residents in the area who may have flooded basements.
“We’ll be doing some door-to-door work,” Voss said on Sunday.
County crews will also be brought in to excavate along the highway, Voss said, in an effort to help the excess water “find its way to the Little Plover River”.
Residents in the following areas are effected:
