City takes steps to extend sewer line

Aug. 3, 2011

Despite some concerns about what impact future developments might bring, the New Berlin Common Council last night voted to provide sewers for the area known as section 35 and parts of section 34.

Two residents mounted a defense of the last large tract of farmland east of Moorland Road, saying that it should not be readied for development on environmental grounds.

Officials countered that the area's unique environmental features would be preserved and that the question of preserving the top-grade soils in the area will be addressed.

In addition to expanding the New Berlin sewer service area and approving an expansion of the service area of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District to include the tract, the council awarded a contract to design the sewers.
