The Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board approved to amend their rules and regulations at their meeting Tuesday night. SAWS Customer Aleta Dow addressed the board and raised concerns about how some of the changes would have an adverse affect on her and her family. SAWS Administrator Dave Engels explains the situation and what was done to alleviate Dow's concerns.
The Joint Powers Board held three public hearings on the proposed changes, as they are required to have a 45-day public comment period before any change can be officially adopted.
One item that couldn't be agreed on was the cost allocation between SAWS and the City for construction of the Big Goose Water Treatment Plant Clearwell and the Cryptosporidium Improvements Project.
The Environmental Protection Agency has set a deadline for 2013 to complete construction on both the Sheridan Water Treatment Plant and the Big Goose Water Treatment Plant.
