Root River Goes to Sewage?

 

 

So I went to my first meeting of the Waterworks Commission yesterday. I did so because with the focus of Mayor John Dickert to sell water from Lake Michigan to Waukesha even though this would becuse of the Great Lakes Compact to replace Water from Lake Michigan with “Treated” sewage from Waukesha. This sewage as I understand it would come down the Root River yes Sewage in the Root River perhaps looking like this

 

 

Yum! Lets go boating or swimming now!

 

Last night meeting was interesting. Went fast the members had read the agenda (Unlike what goes on at say the City Cable Commission). Overall I was impressed whit how it was run.

Mayor Dickert was there as a member but did not run the meeting. The Mayor also did not make motions he may have seconded  some no issues with that.

I taped the Audio of the meeting and plan to tape the Audio of all the meeting of the Waterworks commission with what is being proposed by the City of Racine to sell water to Waukesha and get  “treated” sewage in return is so critical because  the Good old boys want this done andd as  I see it will do anything to make it so. Why?

Easy, all about the money.  Lets look at what the Water might bring in If I understand right Waukesha might need 5 MILLION gallons a day and  lets say we charge only .05 per 1000 gallons that’s $2500 per day  about 900,000 a year. I am sure that there will be fees and other charges Racine see over 1 million a year in income for the City of Racine easy if not more.

Think of the land that may have to be bought or rights leased to run pipes under/over. How many millions will that cost? What FOJ (Friend of John) might be used for that  sweat part of the deal?

Think about the engineering and the creation of the system. How much money will that be who might benefit  from that part of the contact? How much might that cost.

How many Millions will this selling of Water cost us? Who might see a lot of funds come into their hands?  Can we trust Mayor John Dicket to keep our Water clean? Please recall the Lead issues in some of the Homes in Racine’s NSP program.

Now I have been assured that the Sewage will be treated and all will be well then I recall this:

http://mediatrackers.org/2012/05/30/politically-toxic-tom-barrett-and-the-metropolitan-milwaukee-sewerage-district/   only 170 MILLION gallons of Raw Sewage dumped last year into Lake Michigan by the Green Mayor of Milwaukee in 2011. So what might we look at here if some act of God would dump sewage into the Root River?  1 Million Gallons? 2 Million?  What woult that do to the homes along the River? What might that do to North Beach?  Are you willing to take a chance?

 

In the posts to come lets look at the money
