of the total supply capacity. A Water System Master Plan study was last updated in 2001. Therein projected water demands predict a need for a future well on the Villages east side at some time between 2010 and 2020. Additional water storage of 330000 gallons will also be required by 2020. An amendment to the Master Plan was completed in 2002 that included an evaluation of Lake Michigan water supply alternatives. The study indicated that the Utilitys current groundwater supply is quite adequate through the year 2020 planning period. A further conclusion identified that the most cost-effective lake water supply option in the future would be construction of a new water treatment plant with some level of regional cooperation. This conclusion was further reinforced in 2012 with a regional water system investigation study that was completed jointly with the cities of Cedarburg and Mequon. The Utilitys wastewater treatment plant currently discharges directly to the Milwaukee River. The facilitys most recent discharge permit expired December 31 2013 a new discharge permit has yet to be issued A construction upgrade to the treatment plant was completed in 2005 and effectively increased the treatment capacity from 1600000 gallons per day to 2500000 gallons per day. The project was completed at a cost of 684000 and should extend the plants service life until 2024. In 2014 the average daily flow to the treatment plant was 1420000 gallons per day or 57 percent of the design flow capacity. Construction projects occurred in 2012 consisting of a new garage and septic receiving station. The septic receiving station construction began operation in April 2014. Administratively water and sewer rate studies were completed in 2013. A water rate increase request was approved by the Village Board of Trustees and submitted to the Public Service Commission in January 2014. The water rate increases was approved effective March 19 2014. The water and sewer rates increased 7.2 and 9.0 percent respectively. The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin classifies the Village utility as an AB utility. An AB classification is for utilities with a customer base in excess of 4000. Grafton had an average customer base of 4973 in 2014. MAJOR INITIATIVES FOR THE YEAR The development trend in 2014 was an increase in growth and development.
