Anticipating future needs, identifying areas suitable for development and protecting environmentally sensitive areas is the goal behind the 2040 City of Superior Urbanized Area Sewer Service Plan.

The city of Superior and the Superior Technical Advisory Committee announced the plan is available for review and the public can comment on it until 4:30 p.m. June 1.

The plan provides updated information and additional documentation from the plan approved by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in 2000. Under federal and state rules, the plans are required for larger urban areas and become part of area water quality management plans.

Copies of the original and updated plan can be found at

Comments can be sent to or mailed to Erin Abramson, Environmental Services Division, 51 E. First St., Superior, WI 54880.

A public hearing on the plan is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. June 16 in Room 201 of the Government Center.
