Beloit SSA Plan (2010-2030)

Purpose

The 2030 Beloit Area Water Quality Management Plan will provide a policy framework and set of guidelines to enforce the federal, state and local water quality programs in the City of Beloit, Town of Beloit and surrounding the area. The Rock County Planning and Development Agency was awarded two grants of$15,000 each to write the Plan. These grant awards were comprised of both federal and state funds. Preparation of the Plan was a cooperative effort of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) comprised of representatives from Rock County, City of Beloit, Town of Beloit, Town of Rock, Town of Turtle and the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The Sewer Service Area is made up of the Sanitary Districts of the City of Beloit and Town of Beloit. Each district contains one wastewater treatment facility. The past plans in this area include the 1998 Beloit-Clinton Area Water Quality Management Plan and the 1986 Beloit Area Point Source Water Quality Management Plan. The Sewer Service Area plans are part of the comprehensive long range planning completed by the county, city, and townships. The plan identifies areas that can be developed to provide municipal services to communities in a way that protects public health, environmentally sensitive areas, and the water resources of the State.

Objective

A comprehensive water quality planning process was established in the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 (Section 208 of PL92-500) and the Federal Clean Water Act of 1977. The Sewer Service Area (SSA) Plan is an important part of this process. The State of Wisconsin Administrative Code NR 121 establishes the regulations specifying policies, procedures, and requirements for Wisconsin’s area-wide water quality planning process. A Sewer Service Area (SSA) Plan, known as the Beloit Area Point Source Water Quality Management Plan was originally prepared for the Beloit Area in 1986, updated in January1998 in the Beloit-Clinton Area Water Quality Management Plan and was approved by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on March 3, 1998. The purpose of the current sewer service area plan update, known as the 2030 Beloit Area Water Quality Management Plan is to provide a policy framework and set of guidelines to enforce the federal, state and local water quality programs in the City of Beloit and the surrounding area. The SSA plan inventories land use and environmental conditions, projects future land use, and proposes boundaries to guide the development of public sewer facilities. SSA plans are part of the comprehensive long range planning completed by the county, cities, villages and townships. The plan identifies areas that can be developed to provide municipal services to communities in a way that protects public health, environmentally sensitive areas, and the water resources of the state.
