Wisconsin Riverwoods Trail Update
The City of Mosinee has obtained a $255,458 Transportation Enhancement/Bike-Pedestrian Facilities Program Grant from the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) to assist with financing the costs to extend the Wisconsin Riverwoods Multi-Use Trail approximately 1.5 miles from Chuck’s Boat Landing southwest through Edgewood Park to Rangeline Road. The project will consist of the construction of a ten foot (10’) wide asphaltic surface path that will match the design of the existing path which connects Main Street to Chuck’s Boat Landing. The project will also include the construction of an access trail from the south end of Elm Street to the main trail and another access trail from the south end of Novak Street to the main trail. The access trails will also consist of a ten foot (10’) wide asphaltic surface. The project is scheduled for 2014.More

Here's how it works
Disposable Wipes Causing Problems
WARNING - Do Not to Flush!
We all enjoy modern conveniences such as anti-bacterial wipes, flushable wipes, disposable diapers, etc.
Our utility operators have seen an increase in rags and wipes in our sewer mains. Unfortunately, these items are notorious for plugging up wastewater pumps and can get caught on roots or other debris in sewer lines causing backups to occur.
We strongly advise against flushing these products. While manufactures advertise them as biodegradable, it takes significant time to breakdown the fiber bonds. Before the fiber bonds breakdown this "cloth like" material can create blockages in sewer pipes and pumping equipment that will lead to sewer back-ups. These items do not break down like toilet paper does.
When backups occur as a result of these types of items, it is often at the expense of the property owner. Grease is another issue that causes problems. Grease should be wiped from pans and disposed of in the garbage prior to washing dishes. Using soaps that claim to eliminate grease, only breaks it down for a short period of time where it again congeals further down the sewer line, clinging to other debris such as rags or roots. Remember, the sewer line that backs up could be yours!
The City of Mosinee is required to have a program in place to minimize lead in your drinking water. This is an ongoing process. This program includes corrosion control treatment, source water treatment and public education.
