Sewer System Maintenance Report.
1. Consideration and possible action regarding maintenance and operational issues.
a. Church Road Lift Station. Pump 2 went down on or about March 23, 2014. Sabel Mechanical repaired and reinstalled the pump on April 17. The pump failed to work. It was assumed that the pump needed to be fully re-wound. The pump has since been re-installed and is operational.
There was a period of extreme increase in flows during wet weather. Great Lakes cleaned and televised the gravity line. Great Lakes did not find debris in the line nor did they find any leaks in the main or laterals. An insignificant leak was found in the wet well. The leak has been repaired. A nearby property has an outdoor concrete patio with a floor drain tied into the house. The patio is reportedly planned for a 3 seasons room. The owner will be ordered to concrete the drain in the patio.
Sabel Mechanical completed the valve work at the lift station.
b. Run time/flow reports. Commission reviewed reports from a recent two-week period of several rain events. It was noted that the QQ lift station went down briefly due to lightning. Both pumps at the Shady Lane Lift Station were pulled and visually inspected. No debris was discovered affecting the impellors and the impellors appeared in satisfactory condition. The air-release valve may need to be cleaned. Staff will attempt the cleaning.
c. Inspection of all lift stations. Inspection of the Church Road Lift Station is complete. Great Lakes will be asked to clean and inspect the other five lift stations.
d. Televising & cleaning report. The sewer mains on Church Road and Bittersweet Lane, from Lakeview Drive to Highland Drive, have been cleaned. No debris or significant leaks were discovered at either location. One lateral was noted as having a small steady stream. The owner was contacted. He had a new toilet on-hand and planned to install it in the near future.
e. Bittersweet Lane settling. Major sink holes materialized at and near W3932 Bittersweet Lane, including partially under a private asphalt driveway. The owner indicated that last year he repaired a large sink hole using rocks and clay. The Town will repair the sink holes in the next few weeks. The asphalt driveway repair work will be completed later this year. A small sink hole was also discovered next to a manhole at Bittersweet Lane and Highland Drive. This sinkhole has been filled. It was also noted that there was a settling hole at Meadow and Bittersweet, as well as a hole in the roadway on Story Lane.
2. Mechanical equipment lift device. The Town has a manual safety tri-pod. Sabel will research a mechanical version.
3. Residential inspection plan. The Inspection Team recently began this year's wave of home inspections. Follow-up communication is needed in response to the seven outstanding violation reports.
1. Discuss the Agreement for the Allocation of Costs and Transportation of Wastewater Between Sanitary District #1 of the Town of Taycheedah and Taycheedah Sanitary District #3. The draft Agreement was received on January 23, 2014. Staff has requested a redline/strikeout version. The requested version has not yet been received.
1. Discuss sewer service to the SE corner of Silica Road and Lakeview Road. Any new home built on a parcel of land abutting a sewer main must be connected, at the owner's expense. The location noted would require the tapping of the main.
2. Discuss request to allow a relief pipe for the sump pump to drain into the sanitary sewer in the event of power loss. Request denied due to District Ordinance and State Plumbing Code. Inspection report for the property on Evergreen Court notes a clay dam was in place. The owner, in attendance, was advised to consider tiling around the house and to tie-in his downspouts or install a second battery operated sump pump or a more powerful version.
3. Review and possible acceptance of the 2013 Compliance Maintenance Annual Report. Motion by Mike Sabel, second by Bill Gius, to accept the 2013 CMAR and to file it with the DNR. Motion carried (3-0).
Public Comment. John Leonard, Fond du Lac Wastewater Treatment Plant, retires tomorrow. His replacement, from Stevens Point, will start June 9th.
Adjournment. Motion by Bill Gius, second by Mike Sabel, to adjourn the meeting at 5:52 pm. Motion carried (3-0).
