wer Board Minutes 3/3/04

Thomas “Hank” Pelkey opened the meeting at 7:49 P.M.  The Board members present were: Thomas “Hank” Pelkey, Larry Pomainville, Allen Hitchcock, David Markowski and Joseph Gagnon. Also present were Michael Balch, Helen McKinley, Don Nickless, Tom Carrara and Paula Bizon Recording Secretary.



The Sewer Board corrected minutes of 2/18/04 were reviewed, discussed and approved.



The orders dated 3/3/04 were reviewed, discussed and approved.



Uncommitted reserve capacity

The Board discussed the revocation of sewer allocations that the Town has approved.  The Board recommends that the revocations need to be pursued so the State removes the Town’s unused sewer allocations.  L. Pomainville moved and A. Hitchcock seconded a motion to deny any additional sewer allocation requests until the revocations are resolved with the State.  The Board discussed the Town’s ability to allocate sewer hook ups.  The State has prohibited any further connections to the sewer.  The Board agreed to research the connections, the flow documentation and the States calculation procedures. The Board directed M. Balch to contact the State on how the flows are calculated and report back to the Board. L. Pomainville rescinded the earlier motion. 


Sewer Issues

The Board discussed the necessity to develop a time line that will assist the Town in correcting the waste management problems.  The time line will address what needs to be done, at what cost and in what time frame.  M. Balch will research the situation and report back to the Board on what direction the Town needs to take on this issue. T. Carrara asked if the Town can dig around the pipes to find out where the water infiltration is occuring.  The Board stated that the pipes can be video taped to see where the problems are, but a cost estimate would be necessary.


Without any further business, the Board adjourned at 8:14 P.M.

 Respectfully submitted:

Thomas “Hank” Pelkey, Chair

Larry Pomainville, Vice-Chair

Dave Markowski, Selectman
