Approval of minutes of the last meeting.
Dennis Lefeber moved to accept the minutes of the August 26th meeting, seconded by John Rickert. Motion carried
Winnebago Drive bridge project.
WDOT has designed a bridge with sidewalks that blends with the landscape. The new bridge is planned to have 44 feet of roadway and 6 foot sidewalks on both sides; for a total width of 56 feet. The planned bridge would require the re-location of the force main. The State permitted the force main to be constructed within the highway right-of-way by easement. Therefore, the State has the authority to force its relocation.
Tom Janke, County Highway Commissioner, informed the group at their last meeting that the County requested sidewalks on both side of the bridge. They also requested that the bridge be atheistically pleasing. Tom suggested a separated pedestrian bridge as an acceptable alternative. Tom would communicate with Matt Haefs, WDOT about possible alternatives.
Email correspondence has been received from Matt Haefs, WDOT, via Tom Janke, County Highway Commission. Mr. Haefs states that he believes the bridge and sanitary issues will be solved. The Structures Section has been instructed to design the bridge with a hanging sidewalk. He added that he has yet to attest to any revisions to the preliminary plans. Brenda Schneider will follow-up with Mr. Haefs for verification that the plans have been revised.
The group also mentioned a possible manhole conflict within Fond du Lac Sanitary District No. 2. Kathy Diederich will contact Brian Balson or Ron Cunzenheim on the matter.
September 30th, 2008 Joint Meeting 2.
Discuss hydrogen sulfide gas treatment.
CSD has contracted with David Casper, Badger Laboratories & Engineering, for the compilation of a Needs Analysis. They expect a report in October.
Status of lift station upgrades and the relative cost-share.
The upgrade project plans are proceeding with Energenics. TSD#1 expects completion in November. The final bills are expected by late January.
They have retained a consultant to perform a corrosion study of the lift station chambers.
Taycheedah San. Dist. #1 repair issues.
The valves in the south lift station would not close on September 26th. They force flushed the valves to remove possible obstructions. In the process, one of the pumps failed. The pump was pulled and is in the process of getting repaired. The repaired pump will be replaced in a day or two.
A few manholes were repaired in the Peebles area. The repair expenses will be included on the 3rd quarter O&M bills. Some leaks were also repaired in the area.
The sump pump line in the Gladstone lift station was plugged. Silica Plumbing was called in for assistance.
Operations & Maintenance Agreement.
John Rickert reported that the City of Fond du Lac is not interested in loaning or renting temporary meters. Further consideration on the issue was deferred to TSD#1.
JSD plans to consider an O&M Agreement at their next meeting.
TSD#3 and CSD are not interested in repealing their current agreements. Both districts would consider addendums to their agreements in order to clarify the types of operation and maintenance costs that would be shared.
