Welcome to the City of Jefferson, Wisconsin
Jefferson, Wisconsin is a quaint Wisconsin community. Main Street shows off its vintage buildings and steepled churches built by German craftsmen. Two picturesque rivers flow through the middle of town. Our rivers will be a focal point for visitors and residents, so they can float up and catch a concert, meal and even camp along the riverbank. We know what we have is special, because people from big cities keep moving here. It’s also because we’re close by, comfortable, easygoing, hardworking, genuine and fun loving. If the great outdoors are important in your life, then Jefferson should be, too. Because, “We’re Going Outside”.

*From WWTP Superintendent Clark…We are asking for our residents help in dealing with the issue of flushable baby wipes, personal hygiene wipes, or disinfectant wipes. Many of these products have the wording “Flushable” on their packaging which is misleading. These items do not break down and cause plugging issues in our sewer mains and pump stations. They can also cause backups inside your home’s plumbing system. For your safety and the safety of Wastewater Utility personnel, we ask you to NOT flush the products down the toilet, but dispose of these wipes in your garbage. This is one more step we can take to minimize everyone’s risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
