Public Works Director, Vance Henning, reported he spoke with Don Neitzel of Kunkel Engineering regarding the DNR Safe Drinking Water grant. Neitzel reported the DNR will release information in May 2013.
Henning also reported a sewer lateral on Third St had solid tree roots and needed repair. There have been 40-50 of this type of repair over the last 15 years. The clay pipe is now being replaced with pvc pipe in problem areas and should prevent tree root issues.
Henning reported the sewer plant has problems with “flushable” adult baby wipes caught in the pumps. This issue requires much time by Department of Public Works employees to free the wipes from pumps.
No other business came before the Board. The Board adjourned at 7:18 pm on a motion by Trustees Tarr/Walgenbach and unanimously passed on a voice vote.
