Sewer System Maintenance.
1. Consideration and possible action regarding general maintenance and operational issues.
a. Run time/flow reports. The run times at a couple of the lift stations continue to be erratic. Commission reviewed comparison reports. Recording Secretary Schneider plans to compile a spreadsheet of historic flow meter readings.
b. Grinder pump and lift station pump issues. Pump #2 at the Evergreen lift station has been repaired and re-installed. Also, the pump will need to be removed from the Fife grinder pump station if it will not be used for a substantial amount of time. The new owners are considering demolishing the home. In this event, the lateral will need to be capped until such time as a new structure is built.
c. Televising and cleaning project. Green Bay Pipe & TV has completed the cleaning and televising work. The report indicates tree roots in manhole #231; manhole #243 and #245 are buried; and, a four foot section of main is sagging at Schuster Lane east of Billene Drive. The video will be checked for the tree roots and the sagging pipe. Mike Sabel will check on the buried manholes. The report indicated no leaks.
d. Manhole inspection project. Mike Sabel plans to perform the inspections this spring in the same area that was cleaned and televised this spring.
e. Other maintenance and operational issues. Steve Victor purchased the Fife home. He intends to demolish the home. The new structure is planned to be built using the existing basement. The sewer will need to be capped and the sump pump needs to be plumbed to daylight. It is unknown at this time when demolition work will begin. It is expected that Mark Mand Excavating will do the work.
2. Residential Inspection Plan. The Inspection Team plans to begin within the next couple of weeks.
1. Discuss the Agreement for the Allocation of Costs and Transportation of Wastewater Between Sanitary District No. 1 of the Town of Taycheedah and the Town of Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3. The Presidents of Taycheedah Sanitary District #3, Johnsburg Sanitary District and Calumet Sanitary District plan to meet in the spring to review the draft documents.
2. Status of the build-out of the Ledge Road metering station. Eric Otte has reviewed the District's documents and performed site inspections. He is in the process of compiling the plans and specifications to be used in the bidding package. The goal is to have the project tested and fully operational by September 30th, the end of the third calendar quarter.
1. Digger's Hotline Annual Meeting and Proxy Ballot. The proxy vote was defaulted to the slate of candidates presented.
2. Audit requirements. Katherine Diederich, Schenck, the District's auditing firm, has been in communication with Dan Hintze, National Exchange Bank & Trust, regarding the Bank's formal audit requirements. The Commission is waiting a report from Diederich. President Gius will contact Mr. Hintze.
