FOND DU LAC 2030 SEWER SERVICE AREA PLAN UPDATE:
Joe Huffman explained the sewer service area (SSA) amendment process. The SSA for the City of Fond du Lac treatment facility is beginning a routine review and amendment. Each district needs to evaluate their current SSA to determine if there is a need to modify the current boundaries. Mr. Huffman will develop population estimates for each district. Maps and other information will also be shared with the districts and input will be taken. Joe will compile a questionnaire to aid in the population estimates.
TOWN OF FOND DU LAC SANITARY DSITRICT #2:
Bill Giese reported that they have yet to receive a final invoice from the State for manhole adjustments along Winnebago Drive. Once the final bill is received, the Commission intends to reduce the payment by the costs they incurred for televising and cleaning.
Ken Schneider and Bob Giese departed at this time.
July 26th, 2012 Joint Sanitary District 2.
WINNEBAGO DRIVE PROJECT:
Status of Utility Pole Locations
• Alliant plans to re-locate the poles on a yet to be announce date.
OTHER SHARED SEWER REPAIR ISSUES:
TSD#1 has consulted with Ron Cunzenheim and Energenics regarding variable frequency motors. The purpose of the motors is to reduce the rpms and cycling periods. The existing pumps are cycling too frequently and pumping too fast. Thome Electric has estimated $4,000 for the necessary modifications to the station and the estimate for the motors, installation and control panel modifications is $26,600. The costs will be shared via the operation and maintenance bills. The new motors are expected to meet the service needs of more than 100 additional homes; which are not expected to be seen for several years due to the economy.
OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS:
Taycheedah Sanitary District #1 is in the process of installing meters at the Gladstone and Brookhaven lift stations at their expense. The meters are expected to be operational in early August. O&M Agreements may need to be modified.
TSD#3's Sept 30, 2011 bill needs to be re-calculated due to the Linden Beach Road force main repair.
Andy Karls' and Dan Weber's time logs were reviewed for the 2011 4th quarter, 2012 1st and 2nd quarter.
The bill for Cty. UU submitted to TSD#3 is still outstanding. The bill will not be re-sent. TSD#3 needs to review Ron Cunzenheim's written reasoning. The bill is not disputable.
TSD#3 was informed that treatment for Ledge Road non-metered flows have not been billed.
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.
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.
There was brief discussion regarding the need for this project. Consensus was to discontinue this project at this time.
CSD inspected their entire district a few years ago. They are thinking about starting inspections again.
TSD#1 began inspections this year. To date, 150 have been completed. They plan to inspect 25% of the estimated 660 homes this year. A few violations were found that need follow-up.
July 26th, 2012 Joint Sanitary District 3.
TSD#3 has completed 17 inspections with violations found at seven of them.
