Curtiss, Abbyland avert state injunction
The Village of Curtiss and Abbyland Pork Pack have averted a state injunction to shut off the village’s sewage treatment plant, and plans for renovating the plant to handle more waste are again moving forward.
Village Atty. Frank Nikolay and Robert Hunter of the Wisconsin Dept. of Justice confi rmed this week that the state’s injunction, which would have prevented the village from operating its plant, was set aside after both the Village Board and Abbyland Pork Pack stipulated they would not violate the conditions of the Curtiss wastewater permit.
An injunction hearing, which had been scheduled for Oct. 15 in Stevens Point, was called off.
The village will have to send regular discharge reports to ensure that the permit is not being violated, but it appears that the village may have the modifications to the plant finished by the next discharge period.
Village Engineer Clayton Connell said he had finally received approval of the facilities for the upgrading of the treatment plant. Connell stated four mechanical aeration units are to be installed in the lagoon, along with a grease removal system. With the recent approval of the preliminary plan, he said he can get moving on creating working drawings which contractors can use to figure bids. He said much of that work has been done already, but there is no rush now, because no construction will take place this year.
