JOINT SPECIAL BUSINESS MEETING
JUNE 30th, 2014
TOWN OF FOND DU LAC TOWN HALL
W5990 PIONEER ROAD, FOND DU LAC
The Town Boards of the above noted towns met to discuss matters relating to the new requirements of the towns' Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System General Permits, as administered and enforced by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Members present were:
Taycheedah Town Board: Clerk Brenda Schneider. Absent: Chairman Jerry Guelig, Supervisors John Abler, Clarence Kraus, Jim Rosenthal and Tim Simon.
Fond du Lac Town Board: Chairman Bob Giese, Supervisors LeRoy Schmitz and Phyllis Giese, Clerk Patti Supple, Treasurer Jody Roffers and Permit Issuer James Supple.
Friendship Town Board: Chairman Chuck McCourt and Supervisors Howard Miller and Dina O'Brien.
Also present: Charles Boehm and Carla Fischer, AECOM and Attorney Matt Parmentier, representing all three towns.
Charles Boehm and Carla Fischer, AECOM, presented an overview of the MS4 permit requirements. The highlights of their presentation were as follows:
• The towns will not be impacted by Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) limits at this time. However, the limit is expected to affect the towns in a few years. TMDL relates to analyzing particles contained in stormwater collected at pre-identified locations.
• By late July, the towns need to determine if their stormwater drains into impaired waters.
• Section 2.3 of the Permit requires field screening of 'selected' outfalls on an annual basis and field screening of 'major' outfalls at least once during the permit cycle (5 years). The current list of outfalls needs to be confirmed as major outfalls and all other outfalls within the towns need to be identified. If stormwater is found at any of the outfalls, testing needs to be done. Matt Parmentier will contact the City of Fond du Lac to see if they're are capable and willing to provide this service to the towns.
• Section 2.4 and 2.5 requires an update of construction site and erosion control ordinances. All three towns have taken the necessary steps to designate the County for administration and enforcement of these matters. Matt Parmentier will compile a Memorandum of Understanding to define this arrangement. Matt Parmentier reported that Lynn Mathias, County Conservationist, is aware of the need to update the ordinance.
• Section 2.5 requires the updating of the Town's inventory of facilities, reporting of de-icing activities with tracking to begin 1/1/2015, and updating of the Town's Stormwater Pollution Prevention Planning (SWPPP) for municipal garages and storage areas.
Permit requirements with 2014 completion deadlines:
• Impaired waters determination,
• Identify and classify all outfalls,
• Review and update Facilities Inventory, and
• Review and update Stormwater Pollution Prevention Planning (SWPPP).
AECOM is capable of providing the services needed to complete the above noted requirements. AECOM will submit proposals to all the Towns for consideration at their July meetings.
The meeting concluded at approximately 6:40 p.m.
