Over the Thanksgiving weekend the water operator, Judy Leavitt, checked the well pump before starting work on the plugged line and found that the pump had seized. A new upgraded pump was put in to fit Gunlock’s needs better. Since the December 2010 flood, the old well pump ran for a few months and it was not designed for that kind of use. The new pump is designed to handle longer use and also has better ability turn on and off as needed without the same kind of wear.

The meeting dates and time for the GSSD will stay the same for 2012, which is the first Thursday of each month (except for July and August) at 7:00pm.
