The board has not heard back from the EPA if they are going to be fined. Roxanne Aplanalp was asked about the flood from someone from the EPA but there was no mention about the order. She said “in my mind we are okay with the EPA.”
Board members have been meeting with sources to see if Gunlock can get help rebuilding our water system that was washed out by the flood. There is progress from the meetings they have been to, but they have to wait and see.
The Smith Ranch connection is progressing slowly with some documentation to use their well. More still needs to be done.
A work order was put in to fix a few street lights. Some of the park fence posts are rotting and then falling down in the wind. Some repairs for the park and also for the valves and air valves will have to wait until the water system repair is figured out.
The certified operator asked to have a back up just in case she is not available. The board agreed that it would be a good idea. It will mostly be for finishing reports. The water is being chlorinated by hand by the operator since the system has not been fixed yet. Water testing went well last month. All tests passed fine and were reported on time.
The board is signing up for the RWAU conference to continue their training.
