  2. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About the Process • CDBG Apps

  3. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About CDBG Funds • Federal funds • Come to Iowa from Housing and Urban Development Administration (HUD) • Iowa plans how to use the funds

  4. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About CDBG Funds • Iowa Priorities: Owner-occupied housing for elderly and LMI individuals Infrastructure for LMI communities Public services like day care centers and sheltered workshops who serve LMI individuals Economic development for jobs that will employ LMI individuals

  5. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps 2012 CDBG Program Funds: $21 million

  6. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps 2012 CDBG Program Funds: $21 million

  7. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About the Process • An effort to change how CDBG funds are allocated in Iowa • Want to change from centralized (Des Moines) to de-centralized (regions) process • Thank you for volunteering to be a part of this effort

  8. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About the Process • This committee is presently considered ad hoc • Results will go to evaluate and refine process at the statewide level • Committee results will be presented to and accepted by SEIRPC Board of Directors

  9. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About the Process • Results from committee have no bearing on funding right now • Results from committee in the fall will have a bearing on funding results • This is a fluid process – feel free to make • comments or recommendations

  10. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • About the Process • Four other regions in Iowa completing the same process • SEIRPC staff will compile objectivescoring criteria • Committee members will compile subjective scoring criteria

  11. Scoring CDBG Water/Sewer Apps • Today • Each application will be reviewed with the committee • Scoring criteria will be reviewed with the committee • Committee members will be asked to score the applications, come back and discuss scores and process at next meeting.

  12. CDBG Application #1: Conesville • Applying for lift station improvements • Total Cost: $200,000 • CDBG Request $120,000 (60%) • Local Match $80,000 (40%)

  13. CDBG Application #1: Conesville • Applying for lift station improvements • Specifically: • New pumps and controls • Emergency generator • Power Service

  14. CDBG Application #1: Conesville

  15. CDBG Application #1: Conesville • Applying for lift station improvements • Why: • Lift station original to 1971 • No emergency generator • Bypass pump not connected • Maintenance nearly impossible • Bypass flows to ditch

  16. CDBG Application #1: Conesville • Applying for lift station improvements • Alternatives: • 1. Do nothing (continue to operate in violation of DNR NPDES permit limits • 2. Implement project as described

  17. CDBG Application #1: Conesville • Applying for lift station improvements • What is the plan • Phase 1: Improve Treatment Lagoons currently under construction • Phase 2: Lift Station Improvements (application) • Phase 3: Construct conventional gravity flow sanitary sewer system for the unsewered homes in the community.

  18. CDBG Application #2: Mount Pleasant • Applying for interceptor sewer to replace problem sewer causing multiple issues; (includes pavement replacement after construction) • Total Cost: $2,100,000 • CDBG Request $600,000 (29%) • Local Match $1,500,000 (71%)

Pump all wastewater from the lagoon site back to the new plant so the lagoon can be abandoned. • 3. Pump from the Hamlin Street lift station to the new plant.

  24. CDBG Application #2: Mount Pleasant 5. Gravity sewer from Hamlin Street Lift Station, as proposed with Option #4, plus build a new Northeast Lift Station. • Alternatives: • 4. Gravity Interceptor Sewer from Hamlin Street Lift Station. (preferred alternative; most cost effective)
