ocra grant update
AME Consulting has completed the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) Master Utilities Planning Grant which is a comprehensive look into the Town's Drinking Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Utilities. The study consisted of site visits to multiple water plants and wastewater plants, existing condition assessments, alternative evaluations, asset management plans, and the study document which is approximately 500 pages in length. The process included many meetings with the town council, planning committee, and stakeholders. The highest priority is for a wastewater treatment plant capacity and process improvements project. Other needs and recommendations include a new water treatment plant and various improvements to sewer lines, water mains, and drainage infrastructure. OCRA has completed its first round of comments. AME Consulting is currently working to address those comments and resubmit the revised study back to OCRA. Once OCRA approves the final Study, Town Council will take action to approve a resolution to adopt the Study.
