WATER QUALITY UPDATE

City of Mosinee Water Quality Update A story broadcast on a local television network earlier this year had cast a negative light on the Mosinee Water Utility and questioned the quality of the water being provided to the utility customers – in particular copper in the drinking water. Since this story was aired additional fine tuning has taken place at the water treatment plant, additional cleaning of the distribution system has been completed and additional water samples have been collected and analyzed for lead and copper. In August 2017 ten (10) water samples were collected and tested for lead and copper. Of the 10 samples that were analyzed all were below the EPA Action level of 15 ppb for lead and only 1 sample was over the EPA action level of 1300 ppb for copper. In October 2017 an additional 40 water samples were collected and analyzed for lead and copper. Of the 40 samples that were analyzed only two (2) of the samples exceeded the EPA action level for lead and none (0) samples exceeded the EPA action level for copper. Based on these test results the City of Mosinee is in compliance with the EPA’s lead and copper requirements. Please rest assured that the water being produced at the water treatment facility and being pumped out of the east side wells does NOT contain copper or lead. Lead and copper levels may increase if water comes in contact with lead or copper plumbing and/or brass or copper-containing fixtures in premise plumbing systems. This normally occurs if the water remains motionless in the plumbing system for six hours or more. Lead and copper in drinking water increases with the corrosivity of the water and the length of time it remains in contact with the plumbing. The easiest and most effective method for reducing exposure to lead or copper is to avoid drinking or cooking with water that has been in contact with your house plumbing for more than six hours. When first drawing water in the morning or after a work day, flush the system by running the cold-water faucet for 2-3 minutes, or until the water gets as cold as possible. (If you live in an apartment complex, flushing the system may take longer). Water used for showering or washing also helps flush the system. It is still a good idea to flush each faucet where water is drawn for drinking or cooking purposes since some fixtures contain brass or copper. The City of Mosinee has received a $300,000 grant to be used to fund a portion and in some cases, ALL of the costs related to the replacement of privately owned sections of lead and galvanized water service lines. We are strongly urging homeowners and daycares with lead water service lines to consider having them replaced using the funding available through the reimbursement program that the City has put in place. This program will fund the actual replacement cost up to a maximum of $2500 per service line replaced. If you are interested in lead line replacement please contact the Public Works Dept. at the phone number or email address below. We also realize that the task of cleaning the water distribution system piping (water mains) is not finished and we will continue with our Unidirectional Flushing Program until we are confident that the system has been sufficiently cleaned. If you have questions or would like any additional information please feel free to call Kevin Breit – Public Works Director at 715-693-3840 or email to: publicworks@mosinee.wi.us.

SECURE YOUR MAILBOX FOR SNOW

Reminder to Check Your Mailbox Before Snowplowing Season. Please inspect your mailbox and post to insure that it is installed properly. Just a reminder to make sure mail boxes are sturdy and able to withstand the force of plowed snow. Make sure the posts are solid in the ground, and boxes will not pop off if a pile of snow is pushed against it. Rotted wood posts and rusted steel posts will not withstand the weight of snow being pushed against them. Plow Operators are instructed to be cautious near mail boxes. In most cases a properly installed mail box will permit a snow plow to clear snow around it. Most cases of damaged mail boxes are caused by heavy snow hitting the box. The mail boxes are not usually hit by the plow. A mailbox with alleged damage from a direct hit by a City snow plow must be reported immediately and will be visually inspected by City staff. It is the policy of the City to only reimburse the owner for mail boxes broken from coming in direct contact with the plow.

Downtown Parking Lot Open For Public Use

The City of Mosinee recently completed improvements to the new public parking lot located on the east side of the 400 Block of 4th Street between Square Park and TDS. The parking lot now provides sixteen parking spaces for easy off-street access to our downtown business district. The parking lot can be accessed from the public alley located off of 4th Street (north end) or Pine Street (south end).


City of Mosinee embracing technology to improve meeting efficiency

The City of Mosinee recently launched IQM2’s Legislative Management platform including Live and On-Demand Video Streaming. IQM2’s software synchronizes online video with Agendas, Meeting Minutes and the City Council meeting information packet. Using this software, the Mayor and City Council are now using Microsoft Surface Pro tablets during meetings to view the meeting packet. Going “paperless” was a big step but it will provide immediate savings in paper costs, copying costs and staff time. The City of Mosinee is committed to using technology to drive citizen engagement and governing efficiency. In addition to the great internal process efficiencies the City obtains using this software, citizens will now be able to watch and search public meeting information from any place in the world via the citizen public meeting portal. We know our residents are busy and it is often difficult for them to attend our public meetings so now they can stay involved at their convenience. Citizens are able to watch the portion of the meeting that they are interested in with a single click while reviewing all the relevant supporting documents. We are delighted at the transparency this is bringing to the City and the community. We urge our residents to take advantage of these wonderful services at http://mosineecitywi.iqm2.com.
