SHARED SEWER REPAIR ISSUES
TSD#1 reported that there have been no issues during the most recent quarter; however, there was an issue with a recent seal failure in a pump at the Gladstone lift station.
The OSG is in the process of polling districts for participation in a joint bid solicitation for televising. JSD and TSD#3 have submitted their input. TSD#1 will decide during their meeting next week. CSD will not participate due to the fact that they televised their entire system over the past two years.
OSG EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT
Attorney John St. Peter is in the process of drafting a utility permit ordinance. The ordinance will need to be adopted by the towns due to the fact that sanitary districts lack the authority to do so.
The goat farm in CSD will be metered and the waste will be tested.
The City is planning to use an automatic chemical feed system for the purpose of removing ammonia. The intent is to reduce the phosphorus level in the plant's discharge. The projected cost of the system is significantly lower than initially expected.
Issues continue with the flow reporting in the OSG website. A consultant is working on revising the method of inputting the data.
TSD#3 will receive a bill from the City for the telemetry programming of the Ledge Road meter station. An independent consultant will do the work. The City is coordinating the timing of several projects so that the consultant doesn't need to make multiple trips.
The letters sent to Senator Glenn Grothman were helpful. The Districts were asked communicate their objection to proposed legislation that would impact the cost of operating the treatment plant.
CSD and the Town of Calumet have approved the amendment to the 2000 Wastewater Agreement between the City of Fond du Lac and the Outlying Sewer Group.
STATUS OF THE AMENDMENT TO THE FOND DU LAC SEWER SERVICE AREA
East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission remains in suspension with its' work pertaining to the amendment of the Sewer Service Area attributed to the City of Fond du Lac Wastewater Treatment Plant due to the ongoing re-negotiation of the Boundary Agreement between the City and the surrounding towns. The Agreement is likely to impact sewer service area planning.
