Summer Park Reservations
SUMMER PARK RESERVATIONS- Summer park reservations will be accepted beginning Wednesday, February 1, in the Watertown Senior & Community Center at 514 South First Street. A system of registration will be used which will include a drawing to determine the sequence of registration. Those interested in making reservations should arrive at the office by 8:00 am. Participants will be asked to fill out a card for each reservation they plan to make. Anyone arriving after 8:15 am will have to wait until this process is completed. They will then be scheduled in the sequence in which they arrive. Arriving prior to 8:00 am will give no preference in the order of scheduling facilities. Fees are due at the time of reservation.
CENTRAL WATER TREATMENT PLANT UPGRADE
Watertown Waterworks is receiving financing through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (Wisconsin’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund), which is administered by the Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources and Administration along with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to do the following:
• Construct a new maintenance building with adequate space for inventory storage, vehicle storage, maintenance and painting facilities, meter testing facilities, and operator facilities.
• Demolish the existing Maintenance Building, Administration/Pump Building, Low Lift Pump Building, and Filter Building.
• Construct a new Water Facilities Building at the Central Water Treatment Plant site to house the new high lift pumps and related valves and piping, a new iron and manganese removal horizontal pressure filtration system, a new control system, and chemical feed rooms.
This construction will help Watertown to continue providing safe, quality drinking water for city residents and businesses. Drinking Water State Revolving Funds are established in each state in the country to provide communities the resources needed to maintain and improve our water infrastructure that is so important to protecting human health.
Watertown Park and Recreation's Candlelight Hike will be held Saturday, February 4th from 6-8 p.m. in Brandt Quirk Park. Donations of $2/person or $5/family are appreciated but not required.
