County to continue lakeshore septic compliance program on Lake Superior properties

At the request of Planning & Zoning Director Tim Nelson, the Cook County Board of Commissioners approved an amendment to the county’s Clean Water Legacy Grant to allow continuance of the Lakeshore Septic Compliance Program onto a segment of Lake Superior.

At the June 10 board meeting, Nelson said the county has a “substantial” amount of grant funds left over after completing the originally scheduled work. The segment of Lake Superior that will be covered picks up from where the Tofte Schroeder Sanitary Sewer District left off with completion of its septic inventories, and moves toward the east to complete as many system inspections as can be accomplished with the leftover money until Aug. 31, 2015.

As many as 143 Lake Superior properties may be inspected through the grant extension.
