Public Hearing Alexandria Lake Area Sanitary District Public Hearing: Notice is hereby given that the Alexandria Lake Area Sanitary District (ALASD) will hold a public hearing on the ALASD Wastewater Treatment Draft Facility Plan at 4:30 p.m. on February 8, 2023, at the ALASD Training Facility located at 2201 Nevada Street SW, Alexandria, Minnesota. ALASD’s wastewater treatment facility (WVVTF) was constructed from 1976 to 1978. Future regulations require additional treatment to meet permit limits. to prevent degradation of receiving waters. Increased residential, commercial, and industrial flow and load to ALASD has caused the facility to operate near capacity. Future growth projections include commercial and industrial growth as well as increased residential population in the ALASD service area. In addition, much of the facility is 45 years old and requires rehabilitation or replacement. The Draft Facility Plan outlines the issues at the WWTF, various alternatives studied, recommended improvements, and the reasons that support recommendations for the WWTF Improvements and Expansion Project as well as estimated sewer use charges. The Wastewater Treatment Draft Facility Plan will be available after January 12, 2023, for review on online at alasdistrict.org. A copy of the Wastewater Treatment Draft Facility Plan will also be available for review during normal business hours at: ALASD offices located at 2201 Nevada St. SW., Alexandria, Minnesota.
