Present: Don Guggemos, Tom Wiemiller, Bonnie Quast, Tom Ollig, Gerald Boldt

Staff: Thompson, Stotko, Zachmann, Mareck

Workshop was held for the purpose of gathering information for the arsenic regulations that the City will be required to meet. Carla Peterson, Dept. Of Health was present to provide information on the City's requirements, stating approximately 40 cities will need to treat their wells systems for arsenic removal. It should be noted that EPA lowered the level of arsenic in water systems from 50 ug/L to 10ug/L, which puts many cities throughout the US out of compliance now. Funding sources are available for this project, and several options of treatment are available. The City will have SEH research the options, and estimate costs. Deadline date for meeting levels established by the EPA is Jan. 1, 2006.
