I’d like to ask the Director of Operations, Bret Berthold, to give the Semi- Annual Regulatory Report. Edited 4/17/20 Pg. 4 Bret Berthold, Director of Operations, provided explanation about the semi-annual regulatory report that covered the dates for July – Dec 2019. He explained the customer service response and metrics regarding collection system. Regular measurements from treatment plant samples are analyzed and for the 2nd half of 2019 there were 1207 compliance points among 7 treatment plants and for the last 6 months, MSD did very well. The plants with the asterisks had perfect compliance for 5 or more years. Mr. Berthold then provided further detail and outcomes related to the MSD emergency response rates for customers was impacted by the intense storms in July and September. Maintenance Related building backups and overflows beat the goals set. Capacity related building backups were impacted heavily due to the storms that hit the area. At the end of 2019, there were 86 overflows and we keep eliminating these through projects and plan to be down to 35 by end of 2023. Not all of the overflow points were activated; only 58 out of 86 actually discharged sewage but they are all monitored and instrumentation is added to notify us when this occurs. Overall, Mr. Berthold stated that based on our scorecard for 2019, MSD was very close to 100%. We only had 3 violations throughout the whole year and the impact of customer response due to storms shows where we had some difficulty. Thank You, Mr. Chair. I have no further comments.
