A HISTORY OF NEENAH
The petition that gained for Neenah its first sewer system. Residents whose
homes or businesses fronted on
Wisconsin Avenue petitioned the city fathers in April i88i for permission
to lay a sewer line down the
avenue, under the C.&N.W. tracks, and emptying into Little Lake Buttes
des Morts. The property owners
benefiting from this utility were, of course, obligated to pay the cost thereof.
It is interesting to note that
this sewer line was laid twelve years before Neenah had a city water system.
