LAST SEAWEED PICKUP IS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2020.
A leak in a sanitary sewer force main was found, and repaired on August 25th. The leak in the force main was located at:
12600 374th Ave.
Bassett, WI 53101
The leak was calculated at approximately 10 gallons per minute. The small volume allowed for the sewage to be absorbed back into the ground no more than 45 feet from the leak location. During the repair the remaining sewage in the force main was drained back to the dig site where the sewage was pumped into trucks, and dumped into the wastewater treatment plant.
Also, the closest residential, or commercial structure was 515’ from the leak site reducing the potential for human exposure, personal injury, or severe property damage.
A thank you goes out to the landowners at, or near the leak site for their cooperation with allowing the sewer department to resolve this issue as quickly and efficiently as possible.

2020 Census — Make Sure You’re Counted!
If you haven’t yet responded to the 2020 Census, it’s not too late.
A full census count helps ensure that the Village of Twin Lakes, Kenosha County, the State of Wisconsin and our schools receive the support needed to provide vital services. The census also determines your political representation on the federal, state and local levels.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline to respond has been extended to Oct. 31, although census takers in August will begin visiting homes that haven’t responded.
Filling out the form is easy, and it only takes a few minutes. You can respond online at www.2020census.gov or by phone at 844-330-2020 (English), 844-468-2020 (Spanish), or 844-467-2020 (TDD). If you received a paper form in the mail earlier this year, that can also still be mailed in.
The census is safe, secure and confidential. Your information and privacy will be protected.
So, if you haven’t already, please submit your response to the 2020 Census — and make sure you’re counted!
The July 1st, 2020, Board of Review has been cancelled as the tax roll is not complete. We will update when a new date has been set.
