Washington Island restarting talks to deal with septic tank waste

By Terry Kovarik


Town of Washington Island leaders have restarted discussions on the best way to dispose of septic tank waste. Homes and businesses use septic tanks because there is no waste treatment system on the island. Some residents near a possible site where some waste would have been spread have filed an intent to sue should the town proceed with those plans. The town advisory committee met Tuesday night to discuss the available options for septic waste disposal. Town Chair Gordon Jaeger says the town has come up with a temporary solution for the winter.



The septic waste is being held in a 20,000-gallon storage tank awaiting transport for treatment in Sister Bay.
