STATE OF WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO MODIFY A WISCONSIN POLLUTANT DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (WPDES) PERMIT No. WI-0021482-08-1 Permittee: Village of Luck, P.O. Box 315, Luck, WI 54853 Facility Where Discharge Occurs: Luck Village of, 260th Avenue, Luck, Wisconsin Receiving Water and Location: The groundwater of the St. Croix River drainage basin and an unnamed wetland in Polk County Brief Facility Description: The Village of Luck owns and operates a domestic wastewater treatment system. The aerated pond system consists of two aerated ponds. In each pond naturally occurring bacteria already in the wastewater treats the waste stream by breaking down the organic matter. The treated water (called effluent) is discharged to an adjacent wetland complex or three seepage cells. The wetland is approximately 34 acres in size and flows to an unnamed tributary to the South Fork of the Trade River. Currently the Village discharges primarily to the wetland, discharging to the seepage cells only when the effluent cannot meet the limits specified in NR 104 for Limited Aquatic Life. The discharge to the seepage cells usually occurs from December to early summer. The sandy soil in the bottom of the seepage cells help filter the water further, as it percolates through the soil eventually reaching groundwater. There are five monitoring wells located around the seepage cells to assess any groundwater impacts of the discharge. The Department has tentatively decided that the above-specified WPDES permit should be modified. Proposed Modification: The Village applied for and received a CBOD5 variance per NR 210.5 (1)(d) Wisconsin Administrative Code. The facility was successful in showing that BOD5 data was flawed as the result of being inflated by at least partial nitrification that occurs in the BOD5 test. Nitrification gives erroneously high results therefore falsely indicating noncompliance. Permit Drafter: Sheri A. Snowbank, DNR, 810 Maple St., Spooner, WI 54801, 715-635-4131, sheri.snowbank@wisconsin.gov Basin Engineer: Michelle Balk, DNR, 810 W Maple St., Spooner, WI 54801, 715-635-4054, Michelle.Balk@Wisconsin.gov Persons wishing to comment on or object to the proposed permit action, or to request a public hearing, may write to the Department of Natural Resources at the permit drafterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address. All comments or suggestions received no later than 30 days after the publication date of this public notice will be considered along with other information on file in making a final decision regarding the permit. Anyone providing comments in response to this public notice will receive a notification of the Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final decision when the permit is issued. Where designated as a reviewable surface water discharge permit, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is allowed up to 90 days to submit comments or objections regarding this permit determination. If no comments are received on the proposed permit from anyone, including U.S. EPA, the permit will be issued as proposed. The Department may schedule a public informational hearing if requested by any person and shall schedule a public informational hearing if a petition requesting a hearing is received from 5 or more persons or if response to this notice indicates significant public interest pursuant to s. 283.49, Stats. Requests for a public informational hearing shall state the following: the name and address of the person(s) requesting the hearing; the interest in the proposed permit of the person(s) requesting the hearing; the reasons for the request; and the issues proposed to be considered at the hearing.

Saying goodbye to my students at the end of the school year was hard. Not a mother myself, I felt a little like one as I gave them brownies and last words of advice.

My cat Lucy died last week and saying goodbye to her was hard, even though I could see she was tired and needed to leave.

Besides the environmental effects of improper medication disposal, having these unused or expired medications at home can be a source of accidental ingestion, particularly for kids and pets, which are more susceptible to poisoning. If they are thrown in the trash, there is also the potential that persons may see discarded containers in your trash and use the medications for illegal purposes. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring the medications in to the collection, the second best option would be to bring them to your County Sheriff Department,
