DNR seeks comment on septage storage facility application
Placeholder Image

The state Department of Natural Resources is seeking public comment on an application for operation of a septage storage facility.

Kruser Septic Services of Dickeyville is requesting DNR approval of a plan for operation of a septage storage facility at 2504 Shoestring Road in Cuba City.

Septage is the partially treated waste stored in a septic tank. It generally consists of the household wastes collected by a home’s plumbing system that have not drained into the soil on site. Septic tanks can be either residential or commercial.

The proposal calls for using an existing 500,000 gallon Slurrystore tank to store the septage before disposal by land application. A 6,000-gallon precast concrete tank will be installed adjacent to the Slurrystore, which will allow septage to be treated with lime (calcium hydroxide) prior to storage. Lime can be used to control odor.

Written or verbal comments are accepted to Gerry Novotny, Bureau of Watershed Management, Department of Natural Resources, Box 7921, Madison, WI 53707, (608) 267-7625,, by July 26 at 4:30 p.m.
