Elevated Water Storage Status -Manager Plunkett stated that the
site for the new 500, 000 gallon elevated water storage facility
has been surveyed so that Denison can give the Village a new
easement. Detailed engineering will take place after EPA approval,
with a possible start date of May or June of 1988. The
old facility will need to be taken down while students are away
for the summer. He said the Village will be vulnerable at that
time but does have a clear well at the Water Plant standing by
and ready. The only problem with that is pumping the water from
the clear well up to the existing 250, 000 gallon standpipe.
Sewage Treatment Plant Status -Manager Plunkett stated that
discussions between the Village' s Engineer for the Sewage
Treatment Plant, Poggemeyer Design Group, and Kokosing Construetion,
General Contractor, have been going on for the past year in
an effort to determine the cause of the clarifiers malfunction.
Both the engineer and the contractor are in disagreement as to
what course of action should be taken. Meanwhile, the Village
faces possible EPA fines for NPDES violations. He said the
Village has held back approximately $30, 000 from Kokosing Construction
Company on the advice of the Village' s Engineer that
the clarifiers are not working properly, and; some of the work
specified in a punchlist has not been completed. Further, the
Village has begun operations recommended by Smith &Loveless,
manufacturer of the clarifiers, to see if the clarifiers will
work properly. If the plant cannot meet NPDES Standards by
December 31, 1987, after following recommended parameters
suggested by Smith &Loveless, the Village will hire a third
party, expert in wastewater treatment, to determine responsibility,
and abide by the opinion of the expert hired. Mr.
Plunkett said a letter would be sent to Dan Walker of Kokosing
advising him of the Village' s position. 1
