Sanitary Sewer Utility

Sanitary and water supply utility planning are coordinated among the Village and Town of Somers, City of Kenosha, Village of Pleasant Prairie, and the Village of Bristol (known as the Greater Kenosha Area).  The Greater Kenosha Sanitary Sewer System combines a number of smaller local systems.  In Somers, the Somers Utility District #1 serves the southeastern portion of the Village and Town of Somers (covering approximately 15,000 acres in 2007).

The area along the northern edge of the Village and Town is served by the KR Utility District, which encompassed over 400 acres in 2006.  The KR District is part of the City of Racine Sewer System.

Sewage in the Greater Kenosha System is processed at the City of Kenosha sewage treatment plant, located along the lakeshore in the City of Kenosha.  Lake Michigan receives the effluent from the Kenosha plant.  The facility has a design capacity of 28.6 million gallons per day.  It processed 18.4 million gallons per day in 2003, and it is estimated that the plan will process 21.5 million gallons per day in 2020, and 23.8 million gallons per day in 2035.

Water Utility

Many areas within the Village and Town are served by the Village and Town of Somers Water Utility.  As of 2005, the Town of Somers Water Utility served 918 acres and pumped 31 million gallons per year.  The Village and Town of Somers Water Utility purchases water on a wholesale basis from the City of Kenosha.  In addition, the Somers Water Utility also sells water to the city of Racine to serve residents living within the aforementioned KR Utility District.  Portions of the Village and Town located along the Lake Michigan shoreline are served directly by the Kenosha Water Utility.
