KAUKAUNA – Work on the Heart of the Valley Metropolitan Sewerage District (HOVMSD) Interceptor Rehabilitation Project is moving forward with the start of the public bidding process, which will take approximately eight weeks. 

HOVMSD started pre-qualifying contractors in March and will award a contract after receiving and reviewing bids.

Logistical coordination with the contractor and member communities will begin after the contract is awarded, with construction expected to begin later this summer and conclude during 2024. 

More details will be available after a contractor has been selected, contracts have been signed and the contractor has completed their project schedule prior to beginning work.

During a video inspection in 2019, surface corrosion was discovered in a 5.5-mile concrete pipe that carries wastewater from nearly 60,000 residents to the HOVMSD treatment plant located in Kaukauna along the Fox River. 

The pipe was originally installed in 1977. 

By addressing the corrosion of the pipe now, the district will avoid a more costly repair or replacement at a later date and will prolong the useful life of the pipe by an estimated 50 years.

HOVMSD is planning community outreach efforts in the areas directly affected by the project as the start of work approaches.
