Have you heard about the problems the Waukesha Water Utility faces in developing a new water supply? Have you ever wished someone would ask a certain question about the Great Lakes water application and you wanted a clear answer?
The Waukesha Water Utility and area aldermen are teaming together to hold neighborhood meetings about the city’s future water supply. The in-depth discussion includes a history of groundwater resources in Waukesha, where the city is at now and why the Waukesha Water Utility is seeking Lake Michigan water to address its long-term water needs.
Dozens of residents in District 1 had the opportunity to sit through the presentation on Wednesday with Alderman Terry Thieme. Now other aldermen are holding their neighborhood meetings.
The aldermen and Waukesha Water Utility General Manager Dan Duchniak are holding the meetings from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. A 30- to 45-minute presentation will begin at 6:45 p.m. The following districts are set for their neighborhood discussions:
- District 15, Duane Paulson: Feb. 29 Butler Middle School
- District 9, Kathleen Cummings: March 1 Heyer Elementary School
- District 13, Andy Reiland: March 7 Bethesda Elementary School
- District 4, Joe Pieper: March 8 Summit View Elementary School
- District 12, Rick Hastings: March 15 Waukesha West High School
- District 14, Joan Francoeur: March 22 Lowell Elementary School
- District 6, Brian White: March 29 Waukesha STEM Academy-Saratoga Campus
As of late last week, Alderman Paul Ybarra was still working with Duchniak to schedule a neighborhood meeting for District 5.
