Waukesha Water Public Meeting
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE WAUKESHA WATER UTILITY
"We want to give the public time to review the application," Mayor Larry Nelson said. "The water utility and the Common Council will be holding additional meetings to hear public feedback and questions on the draft application," he said. The city may decide in March or April whether to apply to the Department of Natural Resources to use Great Lakes water and to recycle it back to the lake.
The public is invited to attend the Jan. 28 meeting. It will be carried live in Waukesha on cable channel 25 and rebroadcast later. Following the presentation, the water utility will first respond to questions from members of the Common Council and Water Utility Commission and then to
questions from the public. Additional public meetings will be scheduled by the Waukesha Water Utility and the Common Council to receive public comments. "
We want to be sure the public sees a draft of the application prior to those meetings, which is why we are making it available on January 28," Mayor Nelson said. "However, the draft will undergo additional changes as we continue to develop it and as we get feedback from the public and others."
Previously-released documents on the city's potential applications, including answers to questions submitted by a coalition of environmental groups, are available at http://www.ci.waukesha.wi.uslweb/~uestlfturevatersu~lnfToh.e draft application will be available January 28 at 7 pm.
