For decades Herr Construction has not only been serving the Genesee area doing Soil Tests, Septic Installations, Septic Pumping, and Septic & Sewer Repairs, but we are physically located in Genesee. Closing in on almost 100 years in the business, the Herr family has been installing septic systems in the area since before I-94 went through Waukesha County. Located just off of highway 18 in Genesee, we can remember when Hwy 18 used to be Hwy 30/Hwy 19 BEFORE I94 even existed. Highway 18 was the highway back before I94 was built in 1956.
In fact for four generations we have been serving Genesee and the surrounding areas. Many of the local residents have used Herr Construction for their Soil Testing. Soil (‘Perc’) Testing needs to be performed on all lots to determine the type, the size, and the location of a POWTS (Private Onsite Wastewater Treatment System). Soil Testing determines if the soil is suitable for a Conventional (gravity) System, a Mound System, or if soil does not pass for either of those, a Holding Tank. Soil Testing is extremely important to accurately determine type and location of any type of on-site system.
The glaciers were good to this part of Waukesha County, depositing substantial areas with optimum soil for onsite wastewater treatment (i.e. septic systems). So much so, that there are three gravel pits within walking distance of the Herr Construction office.
Projects in the Town of Genesee that Herr has performed work on or for: the septic system for St. Paul’s Church and school, the pond install, and septic system installations at Victoria Pond, Genesee park, Wern Valley, Ten Chimneys, Genesee Town Hall, River Glen Christian Church, work in Kettle Moraine Estates, Lake Country Fire Station on Hwy 83, Herr built the Stoneridge apartments on Hwy 18, and worked for many years on septic related projects at what used to be Saxes Thumpers, and what is now Ellas and Kettle Moraine Heating.
Waukesha County requires POWTS (mound, septic) maintenance every three years. This maintenance includes Septic Pumping and Inspections. Many Genesee residents use Herr to pump their Septic Systems, clean filters, and maintain their Systems so that they remain in good working order.
Herr Construction offers all of our septic related services to Genesee residents: Septic tank pumping, septic system repairs and replacements, design and installation of septic systems, sewer camera and sewer cleaning work, sewer jetting, sewer lining, are just some of the services we offer.
Whether you currently live in Genesee or are looking to relocate there, Herr Construction can help with soil testing a lot, designing a mound or septic system, or maintaining (pumping, filter cleaning, evaluating) your existing system.
With almost 100 years of installing septic systems, you will not find anybody else with as much experience.
Other services Herr Construction provides includes sewer lining, septic and well inspections for home sales, well disinfections, and well abandonments.
Herr Construction also offers a remarkable enzyme based product that opens clogged drains and keeps drains and pipes free from organic blockages (grease, hair, paper, etc.), and also provides annual root treatment for sewers with root issues.
What our clients say
We hired Herr to install a new holding tank on our property and they were very responsive and professional when it came to letting us know our options and what we should do. The cost was straight forward and there were no hidden fees later once the job was done. We ran into some abandoned utility lines and other things on our property once they started digging and they did a great job of calling in the power company to figure out what everything was. Highly recommend Herr for your septic/holding tank needs.

We were up against a time constraint during the sale of our house when we called on Todd and his crew to inspect our septic system that they had installed 27 years ago.
They made time in their schedule to inspect it and make a few minor repairs that were needed in time for the closing. Thank you Todd and crew for a job well done!!
