  1. Brett updated the Board on the NPDES permit. Brett reviewed the past timelines with the Board. Back in 2018, after discussion with DEQ it was agreed that KPSD would perform a lake study to determine the impact on the lake. When lake testing for impairment came back as not impaired, KPSD should have been allowed to discharge. DEQ has not approved a load for KPSD. Further meetings will be set up for clarification to allow discharge.
  2. The Cottages Homeowners Association update. The Board would like to have the Easement and purchase agreement prepared for review at April’s Meeting.
  3. There was a new Proposed Agency Review Request. The property is one building, duplex style, that runs across two separate lots. Zero lot line. The City is not requiring the lots to be consolidated. The District is requiring a separate lateral and tap at the main for each half of the building to allow for the possibility of a future split and sale of the lots.
