Welcome to the
Town of Springdale
Located in southwestern Dane County, WI
southwest of the City of Madison
between the City of Verona and
the Village of Mount Horeb
Residing on the eastern edge of southwestern Wisconsin's driftless (unglaciated) area, Springdale's topography is varied with rolling hills and attractive valleys hosting natural springs that feed some of the finest trout streams in the State. The thirty-six square mile area of Springdale lies within the Upper Sugar River Watershed.
The mixture of open fields and woodlands provides a habitat for deer, turkey, pheasant, and other game. The abundant natural resources and magnificent scenic vistas create a wonderful area for people to live and pursue a variety of activities.

Phone Scam Warning
January 19, 2017 – The Dane County Sheriff’s Office was alerted of a phone scam targeting local citizens. In the scam, a caller identifies himself as a Deputy with the Dane County Sheriff’s Office. The man, states that he is calling in reference to a warrant that has been issued to the individual for failing to show up for Federal Court Jury selection. The scammer claims that the warrant was sent via U.S. mail and the only way to resolve the issue is to send money in the form of a money order. Throughout the conversation, the scammer also refers to the name of a U.S. District Attorney. The Dane County Sheriff’s Office wants to alert citizens that there is no validity to this call. If you have received one of these calls, please continue to report the information to the 911 Center.
Due to bad weather this week, Town and Country Sanitation will be picking up trash and recycables on Saturday, 1/21/17.

ATC PROPOSED POWER LINE THROUGH SPRINGDALE
The American Transmission Company (ATC) is proposing to build a 345-kilovolt high voltage power line (Cardinal-Hickory Creek Transmission Line) from Middleton to Dubuque County, Iowa . The preliminary corridors for the power line include one that runs through the western part of the Town of Springdale. The town board formed a committee SCURE (Springdale Committee on Utilities in Rural Environment) to study the potential impacts the proposed transmission line running through Springdale would have on the town and its residents. The committee typically meets on the second Tuesday of every month from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Springdale Town Hall (please check the posted Town calendar to confirm), and all interested citizens are welcome to attend. More information about the proposed transmission line can be found by clicking on ATC on the top menu of this page.
