Wausau SSA Plan

Purpose

The Wausau/Rib Mountain SSA Plan was last updated in 2008 and most recently an update in 2018 was submitted to the Department for review.

Objective

The Department has completed a review and hereby approves the subject plan update pursuant to ch. NR 121, VVis. Adm. Code. The Wausau Urban Area 2025 Sewer Service Area (SSA) Plan updates planning goals, objectives, and procedures, and expands the sewer service area by adding 12,823 acres, for a new total SSA of 53, 271 acres. Initially, approximately 29% of this area (15,271 acres) will be undeveloped.

The SSA excludes wetlands, floodplain and steep slope areas that are considered "environmentally sensitive areas". The plan update has been adopted by the Marathon County Metropolitan Planning Commission. The approval of this sewer service area amendment does not constitute approval of any other local, state, or federal permit that may be required for sewer construction or associated land development activities.
