Lake Tomahawk gets estimate for storm sewer plan

A new storm sewer in the town of Lake Tomahawk could cost upwards of $35,000, though that cost is likely to change, officials say.

The town is seeking to build the sewer to prevent street flooding on Lilly and Main streets. 

According to Lake Tomahawk Chairman Rick Mazurczak, heavy rains and the spring thaw often create lake-like puddles of water on some side streets.

An analysis by MSA Professional Services, an engineering firm, found that the town could install a storm sewer on those streets and possibly connect it to a sewer system already running along State Highway 47.

MSA is checking with the state Department of Transportation to see if the storm sewer plan would be viable.
