WAUKESHA — The city of Waukesha will hold a public hearing on the amended facilities plan for its Clean Water Plant at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 8 at City Hall, 201 Delafield St., during a Board of Public Works meeting.
An amended facilities plan was submitted in 2011 to the state Department of Natural Resources, and was the basis for recent plant improvements, a city press release states. The plan was further amended in 2013 for the inclusion of a return flow pumping station, pipe line, and outfall to receive Lake Michigan drinking water. Serving as another amendment in 2017, a “Final Compliance Alternatives Plan” was submitted to the DNR related to phosphorus permit compliance. An updated amendment to the facilities plan relating to refinement of the return flow pump station, return flow pipe line, phosphorus treatment, and improvements at the return flow discharge site was then submitted to the DNR in August 2018.
The public hearing on Nov. 8 will cover the 2018 plan amendments.
