2019 Woodburn Watermain Relay Program

In 2019, approximately 675 lineal feet of 6 inches water main is scheduled to be replaced in the 4200 block of North Woodburn Street (between East Olive Street and East Lawnwood Street). A contract for the project has been awarded to UPI, LLC of New Berlin, WI.

Lead Service Replacements

The municipal portion of the 28 water services connecting to this main segment will be replaced as a part of this project. This cost is funded by the Shorewood Water Utility.

Property owners may elect to replace their portion of the water service under the Village's contract. The estimated cost of this work is $6,670. A signed Agreement and Temporary Construction Easement form must be submitted by April 5, 2019 to participate. For additional information, please view the documents in the lower right under the "Resident Communications" heading.
