Any Further Agenda Items for Next Month or Later:

  • Discussion/Likely Action New grinder pump to be ordered



  • All the usual monthly inspections, testing and reports were completed for February including the monthly DNR Report.
  • Raw Lab Reports: within normal limits
  • Dump Station Reports:
    • Birch Street: Steele: 7500 gal
    • #2: February:  7286 gal. within the TOC boundaries
  • Lift Stations #s 3 &4 small pumps that the SD is responsible. These pumps are greater than 27 years old. #4 experiences some pump failure.  There are 2 pumps in that station.  WiikibonIninni came out and took the failing pump in to be fixed.  It is being rewound.  I believe they have delivered another pump to this station which is not pumping except with manual on and off daily.  Still needs repair, awaiting return of the pump being rewound.  We will need a back-up pump to be kept in the SD Building.
  • Lift Station #2 likely has old pumps in it also. Steele is not sure what type and size these pumps are.  Once the Operator-in-Chief is released without restriction we will deal with this issue.  These pumps are likely as old at the SD Collection System.  Our SD came online in 1986.  We may need to obtain a backup pump for this lift station also.
  • Motion to adjourn 8:43 p.m.


Minutes prepared by the Commission Deputy Secretary.
