Analysis

This resolution is a requirement per Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources General Sanitary Permit Number WI-0047341-05-0. The City of Milwaukee is required to adopt a resolution to have its Common Council review and provide comments on the City’s Compliance Maintenance Annual Report on an annual basis.

 

Body

Whereas, On September 9, 2013 the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) issued to the City of Milwaukee a revised General Permit to Discharge Under the Wisconsin Pollutant Elimination System, Permit number WI-0047341-05-0; and

 

Whereas, Section 3.6 of said permit requires the City of Milwaukee to adopt a resolution to have its Common Council review and provide responses as required on the City’s Compliance Maintenance Annual Report (CMAR); and

 

Whereas, All collection systems in the State of Wisconsin are required by their respective General Sanitary Permits to submit their own CMAR electronically (eCMAR) via the World Wide Web; and

Whereas, The Department of Public Works has completed the CMAR, a copy of which is attached to this Common Council File Number  180317   and incorporated in this resolution by reference as though set forth in full; and

 

Whereas, The CMAR report contains two major sections titled Financial Management and Collection System and each section is electronically graded based upon data entered; and

 

Whereas, According to the methodology the WDNR uses to grade the CMAR sections, the City of Milwaukee scored an “A” in both the Financial section and the Collection System section; now, therefore, be it

 

Resolved, By the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee is in receipt of said Report and shall provide any responses as required; and, be it

 

Further Resolved, After this resolution has been adopted by the Common Council of the City of Milwaukee, that a certified copy be attached to the 2017 Compliance Maintenance Annual Report (CMAR) and submitted to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
