ExpendituresMotion to approve batch S-1108



  • Operations:
    • Fall discharge from both ponds is complete
    • Lift Station #2 failed and needed to be cleaned to allow repairs,
      • this was done by the Duluth Vacuum truck that was in Washburn at the time, thus travel time was not an issue
      • Wiiki Bon Innini was needed to make the repairs that are complete and the station if functioning well
        • It has been greater than 11 years since repairs were needed on this Lift Station
      • While the Duluth Vacuum truck was here, the main was cleaned from Old School Road east to the end. This portion of the line had been sluggish
      • All the Lift Stations are due for a power wash this year & video of the entire system was due last year. This was discussed with the Duluth vacuum company and they suggested that next year we schedule the video by them.  They have the capability of making a detailed map of the mains plus the laterals with depths and locations of all hook-ups to the main.  This information would be very helpful for any future hookups and also for any repairs of laterals with mains, as the exact location of the problem would be known so that no probing for location would be needed
      • All the usual monthly inspection, testing and reports were completed
      • Annual to twice annually Robust Preventive Maintenance performed in October:
        • All Valves inspected and exercised
        • Flow meter calibrated

      • Rain/Snow Fall in inches: September unavailable at this time
      • Mowing at the ponds is complete for the year
    • WDPES for 2024-2029: a draft of this was sent and reviewed.  It went from 5 pages to 17.  The Final Permit should be received prior to 2024.  There is a need to review the Robust Maintenance Program to see if any additions are needed based on the new WDPES
