319 Update/received report from Dustin, discussion followed regarding all aspects of 319 grant. Dustin is writing the final report for Phase 1 of the 319 Grant, we have started Phase 2 in June. All funds were expended for Phase 1. Water sampling is being done 2x a month, and Jim Collins will be putting together a report. A meeting for this fall will be held regarding 319 and will also incorporate the RCPP program and also updates on the SE Outlet.
Letters were mailed to representatives and water board members. Auditor received phone calls back in support of the SE outlet. The State water board found that the SE outlet would be of significant impact for downstream landowners and due to this fact, reverted the permit back over to the Local Water Resource Board. A meeting was attended by Mayor and Auditor on Sept 30th in which information was requested from the City for the Water board regarding flow studies and the plan of operation that would enable them to give this information for which an Engineer is needed to be hired, to do a study to identify the downstream landowners who this may affect. Once determined, a 20-day notice must be given before a public hearing can be held in which all affected landowners will receive notice of. This will be a hearing to discuss what the project is and what the concerns of landowners are. The Stutsman Water Board is very interested in getting the proposed plan, Hypolimnetic Drawdown system, which is designed for Water Quality for Spiritwood Lake, for the SE corner of Spiritwood Lake, started and getting all parties on board, including Audubon Refuge. Once hearing is held and if the local water board approves the plan, then it will go back to the State Water Resource Board.
Interstate Engineering was the firm that was hired by the Stutsman Water Resource board.
Board was notified that the drainage for Site 2 for Gray township was started with the culvert that was washed out, being reset to the correct elevations/slope.
