This notice is an update to inform the residents of the Village of Ridgeway that, for the most part, our water has been restored and communication error between the tower and well has been fixed.
However, in the process of fixing this, a water main has broken near Badger Mart. While this is being fixed, residents in that area will have their water off. At this time, I do not have a time that this will occur.
I will continue to post updates as I get them so please watch the website and Facebook page for these updates.
This notice is to inform the residents of the Village of Ridgeway that we are currently experiencing low to no water pressure due to a communication error between the tower and well. The well has been manually restarted but you may experience intermittent reductions in your water pressure as we work to resolve the communication error. You may experience air in your water lines and this is normal, just run the water briefly to get the air out.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have this fixed soon.
This is a temporary full-time position performing a variety of unskilled or semi-skilled maintenance work, operate a variety of small equipment, mowing of village property and snow plowing of village streets.

Charter Communications – regarding the existing poles and the service along C.T.H. ‘HHH’, Charter will have an outage in the transfer of the utility. Charter has to provide a 30 day notice because of all the municipalities affected (Area from Ridgeway to Cassville). The existing Charter wire on the poles and the Charter service on the ‘mound’ at the intersection cannot be disturbed until after the 30 day notice. Ultimately, this means the final landscaping and grading along ‘HHH’ will not be completed until after Charter is through.

The site began as a sludge lagoon.
The lagoon was drained in order to begin excavation and backfill to create a site suitable for construction of the proposed upgrades.
The package plant constructed with piping, handrails, and grating.
Activated Sludge Package Plant
The package plant was constructed first due to its elevation. This structure consists of a series of tanks that use biological processes to treat wastewater. Screened wastewater flows into the package plant, and treated effluent from the package plant flows to the disinfection system. The photos below show a progression of the construction.
The Control Building houses the operator’s office and much of the equipment for facility operations. The Control Building also contains the screening room, where wastewater first enters the facility. A mechanical screen removes debris from the wastewater prior to it entering the package plant.
The Control Building foundations being constructed.
Laborers pouring a portion of the concrete slab.
