The general plan must contain the following information, where applicable. Introduction and Purpose Discuss why the project is needed and provided documentation of need.  Be sure to include any .

Alternatives Describe the pr oject alternatives considered and the rationale for the selected alternative; this description should include the technical, managerial, financial, operational and local decision making rational e for the selected approach. Where environmental resources (e .g., stream, wetlands, woodlots, etc.) may be present, it will be important to demonstrate how avoidance of impacts to such resources was included in the alternative evaluation and selection proces . A regionalization alternative must be s ects that are for new included for proj water treatment plants or major plant rehabilitations, or plant expansions. A cost analysis must include any required construction, operation, maintenance, and ongoing disposal costs . lected Alternative Se The basis for choosing the selected alternative needs to be clearly identified – i.e., lowest capital cost, greater ease of operation, most reliable, fewest environmental impacts, etc. – thereby helping demonstrate that it is, in fact, the cost - effective alternative. In addition, t he selected alternative needs to be described in sufficient detail, including the following:

2  Provide an engineering description of the facilities to be constructed, including a basic layout (schematic sizing of treatment units and a desired approved capacity of the treatment facilities. The and site plan) methodology for determining approved capacities for treatment facilities can be found in the document Planning and Design Criteria for Establishing Approved Capacity for: 1) Su rface titled Approved Capacity Water And Ground Water Supply Sources, 2) Drinking Water Treatment Plants (WTPs), and 3) (Approved Capacity). Source/WTP Systems Provided a description of all existing and proposed raw water sources and their desired approved capacity.  The methodol ogy for determining approved capacities for raw water sources can be found in the Approved Capacity document. The engineering description must include proposed use of existing facilities (if applicable) , treatment and  the construction phases (if disposal to be installed, including to be completed in steps ) . overall project is compliance issues , if applicable .  Describe how this project will address current All proposed facilities must be sized for current needs with a moder ate allowance for f uture growth.  - site, via a publicly - Describe how any water treatment residuals will be properly disposed of, whether on owned wastewater treatment facility, or to a receiving stream, following proper treatment and in compliance with the appropriate discharge permit. estimated schedule for designing, bidding, constructing and initiating operation of the proposed facilities An should also be included. Preliminary Estimate Provide a preliminary estimate of the proposed project’s cost and the associated impact on local use r rates . If rates will have to be increased to support the project, an estimate of the necessary increase should be included. Public Participation information regarding public participation for the project, to date, such as minutes from council Provide . If future public participation activities are planned, or needed, meetings, public meetings or newspaper articles they should also be described, keeping in mind that the more controversial a project could be (e.g., major rate needed, it ’s prop osed to abandon a local facility in favor of regionalizing with a more distant utility, increases etc.), the more critical it is to have public involvement and support. Environmental Issues Describe the project area’s major resources (e.g., streams, wetlands, wood lots, historic structures, etc.), the likely impacts, if any, of project implementat how impacts to these resources can be ion on these resources, avoided or minimized, and other agencies that may already have been contacted to help address these resource i ssues. In addition, construction - related impacts specific to the type of work proposed should be identified (e.g., noise, dust, traffic disruption, erosion and sediment runoff, etc.), along with applicable best management practices to address them.
