WWTF Lagoon Failure

Notification Regarding the Copper Harbor
Waste Water Treatment Facility

During the weekend of March 3rd there was a failure in the primary
lagoon which resulted in a decrease of the level. On Monday the 5th the
DEQ and the engineering firm, OHM, were contacted. The WUP Health
Department has also been notified.

The DEQ has been extremely helpful and is investigating the situation.
However, the primary lagoon is covered by an enormous amount of
snow and ice. This is making it impossible to get inside to see exactly
what the problem is at present.

At this time, all influent is being directed into the secondary lagoon.
Developments will be posted on the website when they arise.

LLB Clean-up Days

Clean-up days are Saturday and Sunday, August 13th and 14th.
The dumpsters will be at the dumpster site by the LLB fire hall. There is a scrap metal container there now and it will be there through the clean-up weekend.
