The Notice of <br /> Public Hearing was read by the Clerk of Council. Mr. Jack Hawthorne <br /> and Mr. Bob Southworth were present, representing Johnson and Wil- <br /> liams, consulting engineers. Mr. Hawthorne emphasized the impor- <br /> tance of public participation in this project - it will be the guide- <br /> line for wastewater management in the Leesburg area for the next <br /> twenty years. There are two milestones in which the public will be <br /> involved - this one tonight which will set the initial guidelines for <br /> the study itself and one this fall which will review the various <br /> alternatives developed by Johnson and Williams. The 1972 Water <br /> Pollution Control Act split the procedures into three steps: (1) <br /> Facilities Planning; (2) Physical Design of Facilities ; (3) Con- <br /> struction of Facilities. He pointed out these steps on a block dia- <br /> gram. The plan itself is split into three basic tracks : (1) In- <br /> filtration/Inflow Analysis; (2) Environmental Inventory; (3) the <br /> technical or engineering track. These three tracks mesh and the <br /> alternatives are then developed. These alternatives will then be <br /> presented to the public for evaluation. The record will be held <br /> open for 30 days following this public hearing for additional com- <br /> ments by the public in writing. The Town will then make its se- <br /> lection of a recommended plan. This will be expanded - a prelimi- <br /> nary design will be developed and submitted to regulatory agencies. <br /> It is a complicated procedure involving work by a number of special- <br /> ists and demands thoroughness and a rational approach. <br /> Mr. John Berry, a real estate broker who is trying to sell the <br /> Saunders tract (approximate) one-third of which lies within the <br /> Town' s one-mile jurisdiction spoke in favor of sewage facilities. <br />
