Sewer System Maintenance Report.
1. Consideration and possible action regarding maintenance and operational issues. The recently refurbished pump was re-installed into the CTH WH lift station and the station was cleaned. The floats are believed to have gotten stuck causing the pump to run 408 hours in a two-week period. The floats were corrected and the check valves were cleaned. Bud will continue to monitor the pump.
The remaining five lift stations will be cleaned.
Pump #1 in the CTH QQ lift station has run twice the hours as pump #2. Pump #1 will be pulled for an impellor inspection. The auto-dialer is malfunctioning. Bud installed a new battery; which did not improve the screeching. Bud will contact Scott Mitchell for assistance. It was also noted that the wet-well covers were straightened and reinforced.
Mike Sabel was recently informed of a new computerized wireless monitoring system. The Commission will research this system.
Manhole inspections noted significant grease build-up from Perl's Country Inn to the corner of Billene Drive. The sewer main needs to be jetted. Mike Sabel will contact G&H for the work. Mr. Perl will be asked to submit copies of grease-trap maintenance reports.
2. Residential inspection plan by area and schedule. John and Bud did a few home inspections recently. They discovered a significant leak from a basement faucet. The owner of the rental property informed them that he will have the faucet repaired within two days. Bud and John will follow-up.
Rosenthal was instructed to install a concrete seal on his sump pump.
1. Discuss completing the remaining issues that pertain to the construction of the sewer collection system.
a. Wehner easement. The former District's legal counsel had the issue in process. Attorney Sharpe will no longer be able to see this matter to completion. Lud Wurtz, the District's new attorney, will need to complete the process.
2. Discuss shared sewer capacity. In January, 2009, the District purchased an additional 200 RUEs of treatment plant capacity and City share sewer capacity from the Town of Taycheedah. The purchase did not include the purchase of capacity in the shared sewer owned by Fond du Lac Sanitary District #2 and Taycheedah Sanitary District #1. Motion by Mike Sabel, second by John Rickert, to approve the Agreement for the Allocation of Capital Costs Between Taycheedah Sanitary District No 3, Sanitary District #1 of the Town of Taycheedah and Sanitary District No. 2 of the Town of Fond du Lac. Motion carried (3-0).
September 19th, 2012 Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3 2.
3. Consideration and possible action to appoint an engineering firm, to be utilized on an as needed basis, and to discuss the transition of District records. The District took action in the past to retain Gremmer & Associates. The Commission may in the future formally change this appointment. In the meantime, the Commission will contact Foth to arrange for the pick-up of all of the District's records.
1. Consideration and possible recommendation to the town Board regarding a request submitted by Val Eppli to detach 22.26 acres located at the end of Beverly Parkway and to attach said land to Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1. Mr. Eppli is researching the possibility of servicing the property via gravity thru an easement across privately owned property in lieu of a grinder pump into CTH WH.
The Commission will research the possibility of keeping the property in TSD#3 but servicing it thru TSD#1.
2. Consideration and possible approval of a request submitted by First Preston HT, management company for US Dept. of Housing & Urban Development, to "turn off" service to the home located at W3834 County Road WH. First Preston is the current owner of the home due to foreclosure. District Sewer Use Ordinance, Section 4.13(a), Vacation , Alteration and Destruction of Premises, Capping of Building Sewers Required, states, Whenever a building which is connected to the public sewer is wholly or partially destroyed, or otherwise rendered temporarily or permanently uninhabitable, or abandoned, the owner of the building shall notify the District or its designated representative within 3 days of the event. Within 7 days of the event, the building sewer connecting the building to the public sewer shall be capped and sealed, at the property line or easement line, so as to be watertight and so as to preclude any wastewater, surface water or debris from entering the sewage system. If the building is to be demolished, the building sewer shall be capped and sealed, at the property line or easement line, so as to be watertight prior to commencement of demolition. Section 4.13(c), Adjustment to User Charges, states, Upon confirmation and inspection of the capped and sealed building sewer by the Sanitary District, only the treatment charge portion of the sewer user charge for the property will be discontinued, for such time as the building sewer remains capped and sealed in accordance with the requirements of this ordinance.
Based upon the 2011 treatment expense, the average treatment cost per RUE was $82.98.
First Preston will be notified, in writing, of the District's Ordinance and their options.
3. Approval of bills. Motion by Bill Gius, second by Mike Sabel, to pay all bills as presented, (order nos. 69-79), totaling $17,705.96, and to authorize the following:
