Utility assesses Terrace Ave. laterals, suggests replacement

A meeting Thursday at Middleton City Hall will give Terrace Avenue property owners the chance to discuss updating their sewer laterals. 

Crews began work June 9 on a project along Terrace Avenue to replace the water main, sanitary sewer, sidewalk, curb and gutter. The city is also constructing a parking lot east of the skate park and a "market arcade" in front of Capital Brewery. 

The Water & Sewer Utility assessed private sewer laterals that connect to the city sewer main beneath Terrace Avenue. According to a notice from the City of Middleton Tuesday, "quite a few of the laterals are significantly deteriorated due to their age--over  75 years in most cases."

City to flush water mains, hydrants

The City of Middleton said it plans to flush water mains and hydrants beginning April 27.

The flush is common practice for the department and is done twice a year, in the spring and the fall. The practice tests the system and ensures water quality.

In a public notice last Tuesday, the city's water utility said residents can expect to see a slight discoloration of water during the week as it clears out water mains.

The city said the flush does not affect the potability of water and it is safe to drink.

The flush ends May 9.
