Title
From the Director of Transportation and Public Works requesting authorization to submit to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources the Compliance Maintenance Annual Report (CMAR) for 2010.
Body
The Milwaukee County Department of Transportation and Public Works requests that the attached resolution be scheduled for consideration by the Parks Energy and Environment Committee at its meeting to be held on July 19, 2011.
Policy
The County is required under the stipulated agreement with the DNR and State Attorney General's Office to file a Compliance Maintenance Annual Report (CMAR) for its wastewater collection system(s) under Wisconsin Code NR 208.
Background
Milwaukee County as one of 28 defendants in an enforcement action by the DNR and State Attorney General entered into a stipulated agreement on March 1, 2006.  This agreement requires the County to accomplish certain objectives according to an agreed timeframe in order to avoid monetary penalties.  Filing an annual Compliance Maintenance Report with the DNR is part of one of the objectives.
NR 208 requires that the "governing body" of the County acknowledge their review of the report and indicate specific actions being taken to bring the County's sanitary sewer collection system into compliance with State statutes.  
A copy of the draft CMAR report is attached for reference.
Conclusion
A resolution passed by the County Board and signed by the County Executive is needed to fulfill this requirement.
Recommendation
The Director of the Department of Transportation and Public Works respectfully recommends that the County Board and County Executive review and adopt the attached resolution in order to satisfy the above noted requirement.
