Pontiac City Council veterans assistance program Jake Kinkade

Waste Water Treatment Plant Superintendent Jake Kinkade addressed the Pontiac City Council prior to its meeting Tuesday regarding plans that are needed to be implemented at the facility.

The council also heard from the new Livingston County Veterans Assistance Director Michael Haerr, accepted a new council member and decided to spend some money at the board’s first meeting of September, held at the Eagle Theater.

Kinkade pointed out that this meeting was a formality that needed to be done to satisfy legal requirements. He explained permits are issued the waste water treatment plant is directed by an NES permit that is issued by the Illinois EPA. It defines the parameters and principles that need to be followed at the plant.

I noticed that every five years, the permit is tweaked and adjusted based on new criteria, information, etc.
