Birnamwood prepares for new phosphorus limits

The Village of Birnamwood has too much phosphorus in its wastewater, said Chris Jensen, director of public works, to the village board at its Sept. 14 meeting.

While the municipality is not in violation of state Department of Natural Resources guidelines yet, he said they will need to put a plan in place to stay compliant, and some residents with older homes might need to replace their external plumbing.
