Sulfide gas treatment options.
Dave Bogie, Jay Hutchinson, Dennis Wilson and Brett Glembache, representing EnviroTech Equipment Co. and Johnson Diversity, gave a presentation of their analysis of the gas issue.
EnviroTech noticed concrete damage caused by hydrogen sulfide gas in several locations. They noted elevated levels of gases at the Pipe location and the Johnsburg Road/Schumacher Road locations. The tests done at two locations within Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 showed no indication of gases present. However, damage has occurred over time.
The presenters noted that manhole repairs cost approximately $135 per linear foot to repair, to re-line an 8” sewer line is $25.00 per foot and the replacement of an 8” sewer line is $40.00 per foot.
EnviroTech proposes to treat the entire system for $25,000 per year; each district’s annual cost would be $6,250. They estimated that less than one gallon of chemical is needed per day to treat the entire system. Storage structures will not be needed to house the equipment and chemicals.
David Casper, Badger Labs, spoke to the commissions. Mr. Casper is also a Commissioner for a five community sanitary district.
Mr. Casper stressed the need to develop and administer a maintenance plan even if the districts participate in a sulfide gas treatment program.
June 20th, 2008 Joint Meeting 2.
He briefly summarized several methods of chemical treatment and mentioned that re-circulating the wastewater can also reduce the gas level.
Mr. Casper suggested enquiring into a chemical treatment pilot project for a six month period.
He noted that each district may benefit from different methods of treatment. The only way to determine the best method of treatment for each district is compile a Needs Analysis. Mr. Casper was asked to submit proposals to each district for a Needs Analysis.
Taycheedah San. Dist. #1 repair issues.
TSD#1 plans to repair several manholes. The group discussed cost-sharing the expense and, if so, at what level. It was noted that the expected useful life, which was purchased by each connecting district, has been shortened due, in part, to the affects of sulfide gases. Franz Schmitz will attempt to compile an adjusted cost-share.
Maintenance scheduled and reports.
JSD’s sample reports were distributed to the other districts. Further discussion on the matter will occur at a future meeting.
July 22nd, at 5:00 Town of Taycheedah will provide lunch
August 26th, at 5:00 TSD#3 will provide lunch
September 30th, at 5:00 TSD#1 will provide lunch
Sig Tomkalski motioned to adjourn at 3:42 p.m., seconded by Dave Burg. Motion carried.
