Ellsworth to upgrade wastewater plant
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

The Village of Ellsworth has requested approval from the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to upgrade its existing treatment plant with a new oxidation ditch treatment facility.

The new oxidation ditch will allow the village to comply with proposed future effluent limits and provide capacity for anticipated residential and commercial development.

A new effluent lift station and a 3.5-mile outfall will pump treated effluent for discharge into Isabelle Creek at 410th Avenue.

The village will likely apply for a Clean Water Fund grant and loan to help pay for the construction. The estimated total project cost is $2,837,100.

The average user charge for a typical residential customer is expected to increase to $102 per quarter. Existing user charges are approximately $71 per quarter.
