Request to amend Slinger wastewater treatment plant expansion

Milwaukee , Wis. The Village of Slinger is requesting approval from the Department of Natural Resources to amend its plan to expand the wastewater treatment plant. A plan approved in February 2002 included upgrading the facility to increase the capacity of the existing facilities from 760,000 gallons to 1.5 million gallons per day. The project is needed to provide capacity for future growth and to meet effluent limits for continued discharge to a tributary of the Rubicon River.

The amended plan recommends a staged approach to upgrading the plant. Construction of the Stage 1 improvements would begin in 2003. Stage 2 and 3 are projected for 2007 and 2013, respectively, but the actual schedule will depend on the pace of development within the community.

The Village anticipates financing the project with a Clean Water Fund low interest loan. The estimated capital cost of Stages 1, 2 and 3 are $1,500,000, $3,725,000 and $725,000 respectively. Stage 1 will result in a 5 percent increase the sewer service rate. Because the timing of Stages 2 and 3 is not fixed and impact fees or connection charges may offset cost, estimates of future increases have not been made.

While this type of action normally does not involve significant environmental effects, the Department is soliciting public comments regarding the impacts of the proposal.

Written or verbal comments are encouraged. Provide comments to Gerry Novotny, Bureau of Watershed Management, Department of Natural Resources, Box 7921, Madison, Wisconsin 53707, (608) 267 -7625 by 4:30 p.m. on October 3, 2003.
