They reviewed the timeline of the investigation from 2005 until the present and gave their <br /> recommendation for eliminating the chemicals of concern from the well. The proposed remedy <br /> would be to build a water treatment plant with an aeration tower that would treat four wells: three <br /> wells for iron, manganese, and vinyl chlorides and one well for iron, manganese and radium. The <br /> MPCA would fund the design of the treatment plant with the City of Edina responsible for the <br /> construction of the plant and raw water lines to the plant. Council consensus was to proceed with <br /> the design of the water treatment plant as outlined. <br /> The Council briefly reviewed the 2010 - 2014 Capital Improvement Program for the Aquatic Center, <br /> Arena, Art Center, Communications, Edinborough/Centennial Lakes, General Government, Golf <br /> Course, Liquor Stores, Park & Recreation, Public Safety, Public Works and Utilities. It was noted <br /> this was the first look at the proposed CIP and agreed that staff members would be present for <br /> more detailed review of potential projects at future work sessions. <br /> There being no further business, Mayor Hovland adjourned the meeting at 6:50 p.m. <br /> Respectfully submitted, <br /> Debra A. Mangen, ity CI <br /> Minutes approved by Edina City Council, August 3, 2009. <br /> James B. Hovland, Mayor <br />
