PPSSD – Lee Herseth completed the work he needed to get done. There was some issue at the Brattebo property. It may have been issues with a valve.

SEH memo from Bob Stark Project Engineer.
Project Schedule: SEH sent out 130 questionnaires, a total of 79 of the surveys were returned as of this meeting but they are sporadically coming in. Surveys have not been returned from a total of 31 different property contacts representing 51 parcels. SEH may send out a follow-up survey request to these property contacts if the surveys that were received are found to be inadequate for generation of reliable short and long term flow estimates.
The next step, SEH will tabulate the survey data that has been returned and present that data to the board at the December meeting. SEH will be contacting the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to initiate their determination of effluent limits after a sufficient number of forms are returned and a reliable estimate of the anticipated flow can be made.

Community Center – The electrical outlets have all been changed out. The septic tanks at the Town Hall were pumped out before the Hunters supper. The Christmas party will be held here at the Town Hall on December 10th.
