    Who to Call during a Public Works Emergency

    The Village of Pleasant Prairie Utility provides emergency service 24 hours a day, call 262.694.1234.
    (Please use this number outside business hours and on weekends/holidays. During business hours call 262.925.6700)

    Pleasant Prairie operates a 24-hour emergency telephone line for Public Works emergencies. Calls are answered by Public Safety Dispatchers. When the situation warrants, dispatchers notify the appropriate personnel, and action is taken to address the emergency. 

    In order to effectively use the Public Works emergency number, it is important to understand what types of situations constitute a public works emergency. The list below is a guide to help you understand when it is appropriate to call the Public Works emergency number. 

    What Constitutes a Public Works Emergency?

    Call the Public Works Emergency Number 262.694.1234
    if you observe flooding in a certain area
    if you experience a sewer backup in your area or home
    if you observe what appears to be a water main break
    if you experience severe wind damage in public areas
    if you observe downed trees in the roadway or right of way
    if you observe major roadway damage that poses a danger
    if you experience a snow related emergency

    Because the Public Works emergency number is answered by Public Safety Dispatchers, citizens are asked to use discretion when deciding to use the emergency number. When the emergency number is used for a non-emergency situation, dispatchers are distracted from their primary objective, assisting those with truly urgent emergencies. 

    By using the emergency number in a non-emergency situation, you could be costing someone valuable time in a life-threatening situation. 

    or Non-Emergency Public Works Needs
    For public works situations that need to be addressed but are not emergencies, residents are asked to contact the weekday telephone number for the Public Works Department. Calls to this number are answered by Public Works staff who can effectively and efficiently handle your call and direct relevant work to the next available crew member. 

    Call the Public Works Department at 262.925.6700
    Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
    to inquire about garbage and recycling collection
    to inquire about compost or leaf collection services
    to report potholes or areas in the roadway in need of repair
    if a mailbox has been damaged by snow plowing operations
    to make inquiries regarding snow removal operations
