Kathy Diederich called the meeting to order at approximately 5:25 p.m..
The minutes of the April 21st meeting were reviewed. Kathy Diederich re-opened discussion pertaining to the replacement of four gates and two check valves as a cost-sharing expense. The replacement cost of the gates and valves was $21,275.00. TSD#1 President Karen Schwengels stated that she understood the issue and still sees it as a lack of maintenance issue. She further stated that she is not requesting the expense be cost-shared. Dennis Lefeber motioned to accept the minutes as presented, seconded by John Rickert. Motion carried.
Review 2007-4th quarter operation and maintenance bills.
Operation and maintenance bills for the 4th quarter, 2007, were submitted to each district. Included in the bills is $300 for the removal of the mineral deposit.
Hydrite testing results.
Mike Barreau, Hydrite Chemical Co., thanked the districts for the opportunity to evaluate their systems and the districts’ personnel for their assistance in his evaluation. Mike dispersed his report to the districts.
Mr. Barreau noticed concrete damage caused by hydrogen sulfide gas but can not determine when the damage occurred. Mike found hot spots in Calumet’s system, Johnsburg’s system and Taycheedah #3’s system. All noticed spikes in gas level are believed to be due to long retention times and low flows. He did not note any hot spots in TSD#1’s system nor FdL#2’s system. However, due to existing concrete damage, he is certain that gas levels are elevated during warm weather.
Mr. Barreau’s goal is to reduce the gases to acceptable levels with the use of the least amount of chemical treatment. The chemicals will not affect plant life, are non-toxic and no public warning is needed.
May 28th, 2008 Joint Meeting 2.
Bob Depies arrived at this time.
Mr. Barreau suggests a 1-2 week trial period at the Velvet Beach location. He would monitor gas levels at the Pipe manhole where the force main discharges. He stated that chemical treatment will reduce odor complaints and will reduce the need for manhole replacements. He prefers to work with one district at a time in order to document quantifiable results. He will submit a proposal for a trial period of treatment for the Calumet Sanitary District.
Mr. Barreau left the meeting.
The group discussed other methods of addressing the gas levels. The group agreed to research retaining a consultant to review the data. Calumet will contact Ron Cunzenheim.
A meeting was planned for June 16th, at 5:00 p.m., to further discuss gas treatment. The Town of Taycheedah will provide the lunch. The meeting for June 25th was cancelled.
Winnebago Drive bridge project.
Senator Carol Roessler has been working with the DOT to evaluate modification possibilities to the Roosevelt Park bridge. Record drawings have been submitted to the DOT and OMNNI & Associates.
There are unknown implications with the replacement of the bridge by Schmitty’s Oarhouse. The group needs to bring the matter to the attention of the DOT.
Bob Giese motioned to adjourn at 7:35 p.m., seconded by Sig Tomkalski. Motion carried.
