Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is a regional government agency that provides water reclamation and flood management services for about 1.1 million people in 28 communities in the Greater Milwaukee Area.


The MMSD team was to create greater economy and efficiency by switching from an expensive content management system to a license-fee and free open source solution. 


Microsoft's framework comes with a steep learning curve and has a complex architecture and requires a good understanding of programming concepts limiting qualified developers. Their old CMS did not enable marketing to make updates without programming knowledge.

Performance issues: The website was resource-intensive and had performance issues, especially in high-traffic scenarios.

After considering all the factors, such as the number of users, the level of support, and the scalability requirements, Microsoft's framework was not a viable solution for a growing website.


Trivera’s recommendation was to migrate all the MMSD web properties, including, and to the powerful Concrete CMS platform. As part of the migration, the decision was made to turn the existing designs into responsive user interfaces to meet the expectations of the growing number of mobile users coming to those sites. 

Trivera uncovered several new opportunities to improve their website customer journeys and conversion rates as part of the migration, resulting in greatly improved user experiences.

By using the Concrete CMS platform, marketers at MMSD are now able to add and update content efficiently. The platform's simplicity and user-friendly interface have removed the need for programming knowledge and have streamlined the content management process. This has resulted in a more efficient and effective way for marketers to manage and update the website.


Located in the historic Menomonee Falls Mill building in suburban Milwaukee, WI, Trivera Interactive is one of the region’s oldest and most respected Web development, e-commerce and marketing firms.
