Governor Walker approves improvement project at Watertown Municipal Airport

July 29, 2014

Governor Scott Walker today announced a $455,420 project to replace an aging fuel system and provide real estate services at the Watertown Municipal Airport.

Andrew Trimble, airport development engineer with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), said the project will provide needed updates to the existing fuel system which has reached the end of its service life. Larger replacement fuel tanks will allow for increased fuel sales and meet current regulatory requirements. Additionally, real estate land services will be conducted to identify and remedy obstructions to the runway approach.

Funding Breakdown

  • State = $22,771
  • City of Watertown = $22,772
  • Federal Aviation Administration = $409,877

The design project should be complete by late summer 2014 with construction to follow.

Watertown Municipal Airport is one of 98 facilities included in the Wisconsin State Airport System Plan, which makes it eligible for state and federal funding. Airport improvement projects are administered through WisDOT’s Bureau of Aeronautics.
