Finance committee considers wastewater issues

The Glencoe City Council’s Finance Committee met with  Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc., (SEH) to discuss the city’s wastewater treatment facility Wednesday, Nov. 23.
The City Council authorized SEH to complete a facility plan for the treatment plant at its July 18 meeting, with a cost not to exceed $63,900. The full plan is expected to be completed and presented to the council by the end of the year.
The request for the study came after the city received its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).
MPCA requirements are at levels that the current facility is not capable of producing.  The city is contesting the permit requirements.
The city also is required to have a facility plan in place within the first year of the permit’s issuance.
