Fall is already creeping up on us and hopefully that means we’ll have more rain this year too. Are your catch basins ready? Not only is it a good idea to routinely have them cleaned, it’s legally required that you maintain all private catchbasins on your property. To help out with the cost OLSD has partnered with several agencies and a local catch basin cleaning company to offer a huge discount to our business customers that have private catch basins on their property!
Sign up with SCAP to keep your lots clear of flooding AND help keep our rivers and streams clean! Cleanings will be scheduled for October and November. The price is a great savings at only $45/catch basin.

No matter where you live, there are ways to take action to protect our waterways and put a stop to polluting plastic microbeads! Let us know where you’re based and we’ll connect you with the action that’ll have the most impact to help ban the bead. Learn more about microbeads and how we can “Ban the Bead” here.
What are microbeads? The minuscule plastic beads found in personal care products (toothpaste, soaps, facial scrubs, etc.) are almost always smaller than 1 mm. They are used primarily as exfoliants in place of traditional organic materials. These micro particles are made of polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and nylon. Microbeads of polyethylene or polypropylene are the most common. Take a look at this short video below to learn more!
And remember to check products’ ingredient list for:
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA)
Oak Lodge Sanitary District changes its rates through resolution. The resolution to change rates effective July 1, 2015 will be presented at the June 9th, 2015 meeting of the Board of Directors.
The District’s service charges rates for the Sanitary Sewer Service Program and the service charge rates for the Surface Water Management Program are both increasing.
For the Sanitary Sewer Service Program, the fixed rate per Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU) will increase $1.53 or 4.43% from $34.57 per EDU per month to $36.10 per EDU per month, while the variable consumption rate per one-hundred cubic feet of average winter water consumption (CCF) will increase $0.01 or 0.57% from $1.75 per CCF per month to $1.76 per CCF per month.
For the Surface Water Management Program, the fixed rate per Equivalent Service Unit (ESU) will increase $0.25 or 3.57% from $7.00 per ESU per month to $7.25 per ESU per month.
In addition, the District is changing the name of its service charge rates which support the District’s Surface Water Management Program; in the future, the Surface Water Management Program’s service charge rates will be referred to as “Watershed Protection Fees” rather than “Surface Water Management Fees”. The change in the name is intended to better reflect the level of service being provided by the District. The change in the name is effective immediately while the District’s Code of Rules and Regulations will be updated with the change sometime next fiscal year.
The Budget Committee encompasses the District’s five (5) elected Board of Directors and six (6) citizens who volunteered to serve on the committee and were appointed by the Board of Directors. A total of eleven (11) citizens will review and approve the District’s proposed budget. To learn more about volunteers visit http://www.oaklodgesanitary.com/get-involved/.
