These items are subsequently scheduled for council <br />action on June 28, 2004. The 2004 MWMC Facilities Plan, adopted by MWMC on May 6, 2004, is <br />intended to address improvements of the regional wastewater facilities needed to meet community <br />growth through 2025, state and federal requirements, and community expectations for protection of the <br />public's health and safety and the environment. It is being forwarded to the City of Eugene for <br />concurrence. <br /> <br />BACKGROUND <br /> <br />Council Action History <br />The Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission (MWMC) was established by an <br />intergovernmental agreement (ICA) dated February 9, 1977, signed by the governing bodies of Eugene, <br />Springfield, and Lane County. The approved 1977 "208 Plan" for the construction of the Eugene- <br />Springfield regional wastewater facilities set out the original projections, requirements, and projects to <br />serve the wastewater treatment needs of the Eugene-Springfield community for a 20-year period. <br /> <br />To address the peak flow capacity issues, the commission, the City of Eugene, and the City of <br />Springfield adopted the Wet Weather Flow Management Plan (WWFMP) in 2001. This plan remains <br />the guiding policy document in setting the cities' annual Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for sanitary <br />sewer rehabilitation and replacement, as well as the commission's capital improvements and operations <br />for addressing peak flows to the regional wastewater facilities. <br /> <br />The City Council ratified the MWMC FY04 Budget and CIP on May 12, 2003. <br /> <br />The City Council had a work session on the 2004 MWMC Facilities Plan on May 19, 2004. <br /> <br />At the May 24, 2004, City Council meeting, questions were raised concerning efforts toward public <br />outreach and involvement activities.
