Informational Video:Future Rates & Proposed Project

 

Previous Informational Meeting

Gun Lake Area Sewer & Water Authority held an informational meeting on October 5th.

The purpose of the meeting was to provide information about the sewer system.  The systems reliability was discussed as well as the proposed Project Plan and future rate increases.

The items of the proposed improvements addressed in the Project Plan are intended to replace aging equipment, upgrade processes to improve efficiency and help reduce operation costs, and improve reliability and redundancy of the wastewater treatment plant and collection system.

The proposed Project Plan's improvements will include wastewater treatment plant improvements involving the influent pump station, grit removal system, fine screen, final clarifiers, septage receiving, building and laboratory remodel, Sludge Storage Tank; and collection system improvement projects to include replacing the SCADA system.

The total construction costs for the proposed improvements are estimated at $2,070,000.00.  We intend to finance the project through a bond structured loan .

The current monthly rate for customers will be increased after the first of the new year.  The previous rate of $30.00/month ($90.00/quarter) will be increased to $31.00/month ($93.00/quarter) on January 1st, 2018.
