The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, and Solon Springs, Wis., signed a project agreement this month to renovate the Solon Springs wastewater treatment plant.

The Solon Springs wastewater treatment plant provides services for the village of Solon Springs and towns of Gordon Solon Springs.

The project includes building a new wastewater treatment pond and enlarging existing ponds. It will cost $1 million, of which the federal government will pay 75 percent.

Construction is expected to begin this spring, and should be completed within two years.

Last year, the Corps worked with Solon Springs to design the improvements, remove sludge from the three existing ponds and to install approximately 1,300 feet of distribution piping within and between the ponds.

Corps' projects such as this one are authorized and funded under the Northern Wisconsin Section 154 of the consolidated Appropriations Act of 2001.

The program is to provide design and construction assistance to local governments for carrying out water-related environmental infrastructure and resource projection projects in the four northernmost counties of the Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District.
