Sewer service area planning is a process designed to anticipate a community's future needs for wastewater treatment. Sewer Service Areas (SSAs) are areas in and around existing communities that have the capacity to provide sewer service, making them suitable for development. SSA boundaries represent the outer limits of planned urban growth over a long-term planning period. This planning helps protect communities from adverse water quality impacts through development of cost-effective and environmentally sound 20-year sewerage system growth plans. 

The Brown County Planning Commission and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources approve sewer extensions and sewage treatment facilities based on SSA boundaries. SSAs are also included in other plans so that local, regional, and state agency decisions can be coordinated, consistent, and capable of achieving desired growth and development patterns.
