Otto Miller Park Invitation to Bid: May 11th, 2021   Invitation to Bid:   The Village of Hortonville has contracted BNH Lighting to design, develop and project manage the electrical work being done at Otto Miller Park located at 135 John St. Work will begin around August 1, 2021 through November 2021.   The Village of Hortonville invites you to bid the implementation of the electrical work. A mandatory walk through will be May 18th, 2021 at 8 am. Bids will be due to BNH Lighting by Noon on May 25th, 2021.   1.       Disconnecting, re-wiring, and relocating the 2- electrical panels on the exterior north wall of the concession stand building to the interior same wall they currently are mounted on. Use existing feeder wires. New feeder wires not needed. 2.       Install wire way junction box on the exterior wall to feed all the field lighting, 3- shed feeder wires, scoreboard power wires and sprinkler piping needed to be feed into the building. 3.       Install an approximate size of 3x3 junction box, 3 feet up on a pipe assemble, outside the fence next to the north shed. From that junction box, we will be wiring each scoreboard, the outfield light poles, the west green shed, along with the north shed. We will also be providing a spare 2 inch conduit at this location for future needs from the concession stand. 4.       Provide a 20 amp circuit to the north shed and hook up existing circuits. (Pending).. 5.       Provide a 100 amp service with an 8 circuit panel at the west green shed in a 2 inch conduit. Hook up current branch circuit wiring at the shed. 6.       Provide a 100 amp service with an 8 circuit panel at the west batting cage shed in a 2 inch conduit. Install breakers and wiring for batting cage machine and 1- receptacle circuit. 7.       Provide piping and wiring to each ball field light poles according to the new fixture specified wattage. Provide a junction disconnect box at each light pole with fuses and a receptacle on each of the 8 infield poles. 8.       Provide a 1 inch pipe for low voltage wiring at 4 infield poles. 9.       Provide galvanized 90 degree sweeps when any piping goes vertical from the ground. This will last forever and eliminate any wires burning through PVC when pulling wires. Install expansion sleeves for existing ground connections. 10.   Approximately 3,500 feet of PVC pipe, with connectors, budgeted to accommodate proper wire size. 11.   Provide ground wiring to ground rods at each light pole and proper grounding at each electrical panel.   Let me know if you will be attending the mandatory walk through by May 14th, 2021, noon.   If you have any question or concerns, please call me at 920-213-8693.   Sincerely,     Jeremy Bellile BNH Lighting, LLC 313 E.

Village of Hortonville Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP)
521 West Cedar Street   (920) 779-4086
WWTP Operator: Ryan St. John

Located on the east bank of Black Otter Creek, the Village of Hortonville WWTP experienced two major construction upgrades, all on the same site on which the original WWTP was constructed in 1949.  The first reconstruction project took place in 1982, utilizing rotating biological contactors as the secondary process with phosphorus removal accomplished through chemical addition.  The current design, that came online in the fall of 2010, utilizes a Sequencing Batch Reactor process.

The Village of Hortonville's new wastewater treatment plant was designed to use an enhanced biological phosphorus removal process for the removal of phosphates.  The average design flow is 0.50 million gallons per day (MGD), with peak flow capabilities of 1.25 MGD (typically only seen during periods of extended wet weather).  The common element all enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) systems share is the utilization of phosphate accumulating organisms (PAOs).  Hortonville's new treatment plant is designed with two separate basins known as Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBRs), and it is within these reactors that all treatment processes take place.  The process calls for the environment in these basins to alternate from an anaerobic condition to an aerobic environment and back again multiple times.  This process takes place in one single basin, unlike some traditional plants that rely on multiple tanks to do the same amount of work.  In the anaerobic stage or oxygen deficient environment, the PAOs consume the abundant volatile fatty acid compounds in the incoming wastewater while simultaneously releasing phosphates back into the water.  When oxygen is supplied to the basin, this creates an oxygen rich environment known as the aerobic stage of the process.  It is during this stage that the phosphorus accumulating organisms consume more phosphates than they can digest which results in the net removal of phosphorus from the wastewater stream.  Once the PAOs have had their fill, the oxygen to the basin is turned off and the organisms are allowed to settle to the bottom.  This settled biomass is now referred to as sludge.  From here it is pumped over to aerobic digesters for further treatment prior to land disposal. 

The treated wastewater is discharged into the Wolf River via a force main.  Solids are aerobically treated in digesters before this nutrient rich material is injected into agricultural fields for use as a soil supplement.

The goal of the Village staff is to provide cost effective wastewater treatment and environmental protection for the citizens of Hortonville and the Wolf River Basin.  Facility tours are provided for the public upon request.


Sewer backups are an unfortunate but common problem in U.S. cities and towns.  Although municipal departments make every effort to prevent such incidents, they still may occur.  Information is offered here to help property owners and residents understand why backups happen, how they can be prevented, and what steps citizens should take if a sewer backup affects their property.
