Private Property Update – 10/15/21

  • Mid City will contact property owners after the water main has been installed to schedule completion of the private property work.
  • Special Assessment letters are scheduled to be mailed out on Friday, October 15.
  • Waukesha County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds are used to help pay for private property construction. CDBG has provided official correspondence indicating that CDBG funds are only available to a property if the final plumbing conversion to municipal water is completed prior to December 31, 2021, unless the Village’s agreement is amended by the Village and approved by the CDBG Board. Property owners that do not complete the plumbing conversion by December 31, 2021 risk cancellation of grant funds allocated for their property.
  • Your plumbing agreement will be cancelled if you do not provide access to Mid-City to complete the scope of work. Refer to the Private Residential/Commercial Property Connection to Municipal Water Supply Agreement, available for viewing under the “Private Property Information” sidebar of this webpage. Section IV. ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY, addresses access as follows:
    • “The OWNER acknowledges that the CONTRACTOR will require access to the PROPERTY to complete the private plumbing work. Access inside the building at the point where the proposed service pipe will enter into the building will be required. The CONTRACTOR will provide the OWNER with a 48-hour advance notice of the work. It is the responsibility of the OWNER to provide access to the CONTRACTOR on the date and time scheduled and to remain present during the scheduled work. Work will normally be done Monday to Friday between 7 A.M. and 5 P.M. If the OWNER fails to provide access to the inside of the building, this AGREEMENT shall be canceled, and the OWNER will be responsible for connecting to the municipal water system within six months from the time that a water main is installed adjacent to the PROPERTY. If the AGREEMENT is cancelled, the OWNER will be responsible for all associated plumbing costs (approximately $7,000 to $10,000) and will not be eligible for grant monies covering the private property costs. Further, this AGREEMENT shall be automatically canceled if ownership of the PROPERTY has changed since the execution of this AGREEMENT, in which case a new AGREEMENT must be executed by the new OWNER. Inclement weather may require the CONTRACTOR to reschedule a new and mutually agreed upon date and time.”
  • Denying access includes actions such as not returning the Contractor’s attempt to reach you via phone, email, personal visits, or mail.
  • The Waukesha County Community Foundation’s Village of Lannon Quarry Fund (WCCF Quarry Fund) will not pay for additional costs incurred due to a property owner denying Contractor access. Extra costs will include extra mobilizations, overtime pay, etc.
  • You no longer need to provide a $920, out of pocket cost-share for well abandonment. The WCCF Quarry Fund has approved funding the full cost of private well abandonments, up to $1,840 per well.
    • Mid City is already contracted to complete this work for residences.
    • If you have already received a grant from the DNR for this work, those funds must be expended first.
  • The Village Board has placed a temporary moratorium on the mandatory well abandonment aspect of the Village Ordinances. The Board will consider an ordinance revision that may allow private wells to be kept for outdoor use, but not for drinking water.
  • Should you decide to keep your well, you will be responsible for costs associated with:
    • Paying the additional plumbing and building permit costs associated with separating pipes in the structure so that the private well only supplies exterior fixtures for outdoor use.
    • Hiring a Well Contractor to certify the well’s condition.
    • Obtaining a well operating permit from the Village and complying with all requirements.
    • Abandoning the well in the future if the well no longer produces safe water.
    • The well will no longer be covered under the quarries’ well guarantee.
  • The WCCF Quarry Fund has approved to fund commercial property private plumbing costs at the following levels.
    • Up to $11,890 per property if the well is abandoned.
    • Up to $10,050 if the well is not abandoned.
  • For folks on existing water main, contact the Village Clerk regarding a 5-year payment plan option if you cannot pay your $7,692 impact fee in full at the time of connection.
