Abstract

Brief Project Summary (no greater than this space allows): Leisure Lake is a 20 acre water body located in northwest Jackson County with a 2,581 acre drainage area. This portion of the Maquoketa Watershed including the lake is a tributary to Lytle Creek which drains into the North Fork Maquoketa River and into the Maquoketa Watershed. Portions of the Lytle Creek and North Fork Maquoketa River are on the 303(d) impaired waterbodies list. The project area includes a community of 370 residential properties and one business that currently has no central waste water collection and treatment system. The County Sanitarian estimates at least 225 of these properties do not have properly operating septic systems and ultimately drain their wastewater into the lake. The purpose of this project is to construct a wastewater collection and treatment facility to improve water quality in the creek and river. The project will eliminate the non-permitted septic systems and construct a new wastewater system to properly treat wastewater prior to its discharge into the waterways.
