APPROVAL OF MINUTES – The Minutes of the November 2nd, 2016 meeting were
approved as written.
Public Comments: Mr. Adams owns some property in the Airport Road area. He came
to the committee to inquire about his options for connecting sanitary sewer to his parcels.
He requested one option to connect to the force main. The Village of Godfrey requires
all connects to be made to a gravity main, not to a force main. There are several options
to look at. Elevation/depth of manholes around the areas will be determined and the
information will be given to Mr. Adams. Discussion of force main connections to
continue; Mr. Noble, Mr. Catalano and Mr. Weber will research further and get back with
Villa Marie Area Update- There has been four extensive meetings reviewing the
modeling. Mr. Weber said they were getting a better understanding of the issues in the
area. Multiple flow meters will be installed in the spring to determine flow during heavy
Frontenac Lift Station SSO- The two new check valves were installed. The Village is
hoping that this will be the finally resolve for the SSO’s at this location.
North East Interceptor Upgrade- Mr. Weber displayed an extensive color coded map of
potential fixes to the surrounding area around the Lewis and Clark Apartments. These
new line projects were somewhat determined by the modeling program. There was also
an alternate location to help in the relief of the sanitary sewer system, which could be
done later down the road. Mr. Weber believes that it would be smart to do the boring
portion of this alternate location at the same time the boring was going to be done for the
main project. He asked if any committee members had any further comments to offer
and if they agreed with the proposals. There were no objectives.
