WINNEBAGO DRIVE PROJECT
Status of Utility Pole Locations
• The poles have yet to be relocated.
• Alliant and TSD#1's attorney are communicating.
Shared O&M related expenses.
• The DOT sent the manhole adjustment bill to the Town of Taycheedah. The bill is $8,505.69. The DOT will be directed to re-issue the bill to TSD#1.
• FDL#2 has yet to receive their manhole adjustment bill. They will contact the Town of Fond du Lac Clerk to see if the DOT mailed it to the Town.
Town of Fond du Lac Sanitary District #2':
FDL#2 had Great Lakes televise and clean the sewer main once construction was complete. They plan to submit the bill to the State for reimbursement. TSD#1 plans to do the same.
Other Shared Sewer repair issues.
The Winnebago Drive wet well expansion project is still in the planning stage.
July 28, 2011 Joint Sanitary District Meeting 2.
TSD#1 awarded JF Ahern the bid for Gladstone Lift Station valve replacement. The bid for the two valves was approximately $15,000. The valves are currently back-ordered. TSD#1 will consider adjusting the allocation of costs based upon the amount of time used by the other districts.
FDL#2 had nothing to report.
Sewer User Ordinance Compatibility.
It was suggested that the districts design an ordinance that would be compatible and consistent from Calumet to TSD#1, and possibly beyond. The ordinance would address uniform home/sump pump inspections, uniform televising schedules and uniform maintenance plans. The City also created some new ordinance requirements that could be incorporated.
All the districts' ordinances have been posted on the Town of Taycheedah website.
A sub-committee comprised of the president of each district was authorized for the purpose of comparing ordinances and to report their findings to the group. The sub-committee has yet to meet.
Sump pump connections/home inspections
CSD inspected their entire district a few years ago. The Commission is satisfied for the time being, but may repeat the inspections in the future. Cottages typically don't have basements.
JSD did 20% of their homes in 2010. Approximately 30% of the homes had issues. JSD plans to inspect another 20% of the homes in 2011 and annually going forward.
TSD#3, John Rickert and Bud Sabel have inspected 29 homes since the first of the year. They found six violations. They were given 30 days to correct the violations. The District is planning a 5-year project to get thru all the homes.
FDL#2 monitors their flows on a regular basis. They react to suspect information, but haven't gone house-to-house yet.
TSD#1 is using televising in an effort to concentrate on corrections to high-flows homes.
Operations & Maintenance Agreements
TSD#1 dispersed 4th quarter 2010 and 1st quarter 2011 O&M bills. TSD#1 briefed the group regarding the details of these bills during their April 28th meeting.
The group was informed that the 2nd quarter 2011 bills will be mailed. No detail was provided.
CSD reminded TSD#1 that they have yet to receive information regarding a credit owed them due to past overpayments.
