Lincoln County Human Health Hazards Ordinance and Compliance
In 1996, the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors ordained the "Human Health Hazards" ordinance. Enforcement of the Human Health ordinance is the role of Lincoln County Board of Health and Lincoln County Health Department's Health Officer and Environmental Specialist. If a human health hazard is found, the Health Department works with the owner to ensure safe removal of the hazard. If an owner does not comply with removal of the hazard, a citation of up to $429 may be issued. For a copy of the Lincoln County Nuisance-Human Health Hazards Ordinance, Chapter 11.04, contact Lincoln County Health Department at 715-536-0307.

WDNR, Transient non-community Wells

Lincoln County Health Department is contracted through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to collect drinking water quality samples, conduct all required follow-up needed based on sample results, and evaluate the sanitary condition of the well and pump installation. A non-community water system includes an establishment that serves at least 25 people over at least 60 days of the year, but does not serve the same 25 people over 6 months of the year. Examples include restaurants, motels, taverns, parks, and campgrounds. Testing and evaluations are conducted annually.
