Open house explaining project to be held May 6

Beginning this month through December, certain water and sewer improvements will be conducted in the Village in the South I, West I and West II subdivisions, according to the Kohler Department of Public Works.

The South I subdivision consists of the homes south of Lower Road; the West I subdivision consists of the homes west of Highland Drive and east of Ravine Park/Kohler Public Schools; the West II subdivision consists of the homes west of Ravine Park/Kohler Public Schools and east of Valley Road.

In these subdivisions, many of the 80 to 100 year old water mains and sewer mains under the streets will be rehabilitated or replaced, and all of the lead water service lines from the street to your home will be removed and replaced with polyethylene water service lines. While lead (and hopefully root clogs) in the lines to your home will be eliminated, be aware that pipes inside your home may still contain lead. Normally, the cost ($5,000 or more) would be the responsibility of homeowners, but thanks to some grants, there will be no cost.

Please note:

  • In order to remove the lead water service lines, access to your basement will be required.
  • Temporary water services will be installed to minimize water service disruptions.
  • All work will be at no cost to the home owner.
  • During the month of September a construction pause will take place to accommodate the Ryder Cup.

In 2022 much of the South I and West II subdivision’s roadways/curbing will be rebuilt.

An open house explaining the projects will be held in the Kirkpatrick Center at the Village Hall on Thursday, May 6, from noon until 6:00 p.m. For additional information, please call Brett Edgerle at 920-459-3881.
