Town Board To Review Several Water Options

Issue Date: July 29, 2021

A long term water alternative options matrix diagram was provided at the Town of Peshtigo Board meeting on July 20,

The matrix was provided as a water alternative options decision making tool with the objective of a long term, cost neutral and sustainable solution. The goal was to provide a tool for the Town Board to help prioritize and make decisions regarding the alternative options for long term water solutions for the impacted area. Tyco/ Johnson Control (JCI) has indicated that they agree to reimburse the Town for the construction costs of the options mentioned. The Town Board is looking into several different options for the town residents who have been impacted with assistance from the WDNR (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources), Tyco and Engineering Consultants.

The options for long term water based on the RAOR included: City of Marinette public water expansion system with annexation; City of Marinette public water expansion system with no annexation; City of Marinette supplies water in bulk to the Town of Peshtigo through a sanitary district; Existing private individual wells with Point of Entry Systems (POET); Private casting deep water supply wells; Town of Peshtigo public water system; Combination of water supply methods; City of Peshtigo public water expansion system (per TOP/Cedar Corp report) with no annexation or City of Peshtigo supplies water in bulk to the Town of Peshtigo through a sanitary district.

The POET System and Reverse Osmosis Filtration in homes has been removed as an option. Although these systems are an excellent and effective short term and intermediate term solution that Tyco currently has in place for several home owners, long term use is not a good option with the maintenance and monitoring of the filtration system for the life of the well.

Deep wells have also been removed as an option due to having to drill deeper 400 to 500 feet private individual wells. The most important reason this will not work is because it will not work for every affected property. This would require more than 200 wells to be installed and the quantity and quality of that water may not be adequate or acceptable for all those wells. Even if this worked for some residents, it may not for others, which makes this option not feasible as stated by the DNR and Tyco.

The options provided are based on the WDNR Remedial Action Options Report (RAOR) and other engineering studies of alternative options for long term water. Three of the options are viable with a vote needed by the Town Board.

One of the options would be for the Town of Peshtigo source their own water with the Town Board establishing a water district by creating and operating a public water system in the Town. This would include identification and development of a water source, designing, permitting and building a water distribution system, operating and maintaining a water system, sending and collecting water bills and more. This would require the Town to own, operate, manage and maintain a water system. The source would be deep wells and the Bay of Green Bay.

Another option would be the Town of Peshtigo purchasing bulk water with the Town Board establishing a water district including buying water from another municipality. The Town would have to put in place the infrastructure and distribution methods to get the water to residents. This option also requires a water district to be established. Buying bulk water would be less capital costs as there would be no identification and development of a water source needed. At this point the City of Marinette removed this option via a resolution in July and may be revisited after further research by the City of a Marinette. The City of Peshtigo is open for discussions of their ability to provide water for this option.

The third option would be extension of a municipal water line by connecting Peshtigo residents to an existing water system. This option would allow for a reliable and monitored long-term source of water for the residents in the impacted area. It is a solution used elsewhere and will take a shorter amount of time to implement. This option has also been removed by the City of Marinette via the resolution but could also possibly be readdressed by the city in the future. As with the bulk water system, the City of Peshtigo is open for discussions with the Town of Peshtigo for this option as well.

Town Chairperson Cindy Boyle commented, "This is not an intent to sway your decision one way or another, but just show the options and is a tool to use as to where we go from here. We need to collaboratively work together for pros and cons of each of these options".
