3 ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT (EA) VILLAGE OF EAU CLAIRE - BERRIEN COUNTY INFILTRATION/INFLOW REMOVAL PROJECT APRIL 2015 I. PROJECT IDENTIFICATION Applicant: Authorized Representative: Village of Eau Claire 6625 East Main Street P.O. Box 338 Eau Claire, Michigan Ms. Virginia Gonzalez, Village President S2 Project Number: The village of Eau Claire obtained a State Revolving Fund/Strategic Water Quality Initiatives Fund (S2) grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in January 2013 for the purpose of studying its wastewater collection system to ascertain how and why excessive flows were taxing the treatment capacity of the village s facultative lagoons. After completing the study, the village engineers, Wightman and Associates, Inc., identified several projects that are needed to cost-effectively remove the infiltration and inflow (I/I) from the collection sewers, prevent overflows, and keep the Eau Claire treatment facility from violating its discharge permit. Regaining hydraulic capacity at the lagoons may also enable the village to sustain modest growth to its customer base. Eau Claire proposes to make the following improvements over the next several years: Public Infrastructure Improvements (w/preliminary Cost Estimates): Pipestone Street Catch Basin Disconnection $ 6,700 Main Street Alley North Sewer Repair $15,000 Main Street Alley South Sewer Repair $12,000 West Main Street Manhole Rehab/Joint Repair $41,000 Elm Street Manhole Bench Repair $ 3,250 Main Street Alley South Sewer Joint Repair $14,000 Kiegley Street Sanitary Sewer Lead Repair $10,700 Note: The village also intends to eliminate a possible illicit storm sewer connection to the sanitary sewer at the Main/Elm Street Intersection, but the evidence for such a connection is inconclusive. Private Residence Sanitary Sewer Disconnection Projects Disconnect Sump Pumps and/or Drains from Sanitary Parcels $42,000 TOTAL $144,650 Eau Claire expects to fund all projects with cash on hand and make use of the Department of Public Works staff labor whenever possible to reduce user costs. Refer to the attached map for project location details. 1

4 II. PROJECT BACKGROUND A. Existing Facilities All village residents are connected to a separate sanitary sewer system owned and operated by Eau Claire. Research has indicated the likelihood of several downspouts, sump pumps, foundation and yard drains, catch basins, and/or storm sewer cross connections directly flowing into the sanitary sewers. Eau Claire has three wastewater treatment lagoons that discharge bi-annually to the Eau Claire Village Drain and Farmer s Creek. These, in turn, are tributary to the St. Joseph River. Monitoring of flows indicates that the village has excessive I/I in its collection system. B. Project Need During periods of heavy rainfall and/or snowmelt, excessive flows to the Eau Claire Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) have caused semi-annual discharges to approach discharge limits in its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. If current average daily wastewater flow rates hold true, the lagoons will soon be operating at 98 percent capacity. Without removal of I/I or the addition of more capacity, projected 20-year flow rates will be unsustainable, and even modest growth in the village will be impossible. The village might even experience negative growth or loss of customers. C. Population Projections The Village Master Plan states a population goal of 1,000 by Past, current, and future (estimated) population for the village is depicted in the table below. TABLE I. Village of Eau Claire Population Year Population of Village Source: Southwest Michigan Planning Commission 2

5 Village population directly correlates with the wastewater infrastructure and treatment capacity needed to support the community. As a result, the village must either construct a new lagoon or eliminate excessive flows (rain water/snowmelt) from entering the wastewater collection system to create capacity. Michigan DEQ requires that excessive flow be removed whenever cost-effective to do so when system operational problems exist. III. ALTERNATIVES ANALYSIS The following alternatives were considered: 1. No Action If the village were to take no action, sewer overflows would become an increasing threat. In addition, the treatment facility would be more likely to experience NPDES permit violations. Consequently, the village would be unable to grow and might lose customers. This alternative was rejected. 2. Regional Treatment Conceivably, Eau Claire could decommission its treatment facility by entering an agreement to reroute its sewer flows to one of two neighboring communities, i.e., the village of Berrien Springs WWTF or the city of Dowagiac WWTF. However, this would not alleviate the sources of the existing excessive infiltration and inflow in the collection system. Sewer rates would increase and be subject to the new treatment facility authority. Construction cost to connect to either Berrien Springs or Dowagiac would be in excess of $1,000,000. This alternative was rejected. 3. Construct Additional Wastewater Lagoon This project alternative would alleviate the current treatment capacity issues in the village. By constructing an additional lagoon, the current flow rates being contributed by I/I would be less influential in the overall treatment scheme. The village would no longer risk potential excess release rates beyond its NPDES permit, and sewer overflow would be much less likely. However, additional land area must be sacrificed to construct the additional lagoon. This option does not eliminate the existing I/I, which could increase over time, potentially leaving the village in the same situation years in the future. At an estimated cost of $1,330,000, an additional lagoon at the WWTF was found to be too expensive and was, therefore, rejected by the village. 4. Cost-effective I/I Removal Cost-effective I/I removal is the only remaining viable alternative for Eau Claire. This is the only solution that effectively solves the excessive flow capacity problem. Because I/I come from multiple source causes, different methods are used to address each 3

6 specific situation. This can be achieved at a cost to the village of approximately $144,650. IV. DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED PROJECT Cost-effective I/I removal is the selected alternative. Projects proposed include disconnecting public and private sumps and storm drains from the sanitary sewer and discharging the water to an appropriate location. Other projects include repairing damaged manholes, sewer leads, and main sewer line. Details of the selected alternative are shown in Table II and on the attached map.

Other projects will be bid out to contractors. Funding is expected to come from the Village General Fund. User rates will increase minimally, if at all. Responsibility for private property project costs will fall to each individual property owner. The village staff will assist these individuals to help lessen the financial burden. Eau Claire hopes to have all I/I removal projects, public and private, completed by V. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW The State Historical Preservation Office determined that no historical properties were affected. Tribal Historical Preservation Officers likewise cleared the project. Minor short-term noise, dust, and vehicle emissions can be assumed during construction. 4

7 None of the construction areas contain, or will affect, wetlands, floodplains, or lakes/streams. No endangered/threatened species are present. No agricultural land is affected. Stormwater will be re-routed from entering the sanitary sewer via discharge to storm sewers, catch basins, or yards. Restoration of private basements, lawns, driveways, and pavement will occur as needed. Upon completion, the village WWTF will operate at a capacity that is compliant with NPDES permit requirements and eliminate the threat of sewer overflows in the system or on private property. VI. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION Eau Claire held a public hearing at its Village Hall on August 18, 2014, concerning the I/I study and proposed improvements. Meeting minutes and a transcript are available from the village. VII. REASONS FOR CONCLUDING NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT As an S2 grant recipient, the village of Eau Claire has met the minimum requirements of an approvable State Revolving Fund (SRF) Project Plan. Negative environmental impacts of this proposed project plan are minimal, whereas the benefits are many, to ensure a safe water discharge and to protect public health.
