Frank e-mailed the following report to the board and presented it at the meeting.
WINTERS/HAUKE STATUS REPORT - JULY 2006
Frank noted that a valve has shifted and that it can not be turned off. The valve is at the corner of Panorama and Spring and is in the pavement. Mark will look into a change order with Colorado Concrete to repair this problem while they are doing the Wagner extension.
Work on the extension began today. The asphalt in the area is of dubious quality and it was decided that it was in the best interests of the district to note this poor quality when the County reviews the paving.
Water Source Protection
Frank has completed his review of the records and has given the box to Mary so she can filter out redundant items.
Pump station Repairs:
Mark may need help in replacing the door. He will call one of the board members if and when he decides to complete the work.
Release of Escrow by County
The escrow has been released by the county. They would like to see us rid the property of thistles and other noxious weeds. It was noted that this is predominantly not our property and it was decided to review what we promised to do in the permits for the Storage Tank Construction. We will manage the weeds around the pumphouse to ensure access and if we do the rest of the lot we should obtain the landowner’s permission. Mike will contact the county regarding our position.
Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)
Mike had posted the CCR and a letter was included in the July billing telling our consumers where and how to get the reports from us and Lafayette, our provider.
Lead and Copper Testing
Mike reviewed the file and found that the necessary forms had been completed and sent to the Colorado Dept. of Health and Safety in October of 2005.
Disinfection By-product testing
In August it
may be necessary to test for trihalomethanes and haloacetic acid in dead end
areas of our water system. Rick
Moeller will check with
Director’s Comments and other matters to come before the Board
Mark Johns noted that I-9 forms must be filled out for all employees of the district. This form ensures that employees are not illegal aliens. Mark will fill out the forms for Frank and Dick and they will provide necessary papers to verify their citizenship.
The firepump proposal has not yet been received from Terry.
A motion was made to adjourn by Mark Johns, seconded by Nick Bennett and unanimously approved. The meeting was adjourned at 5:28 PM.
The above is respectfully submitted by the secretary…Bob Champ, July 11, 2006.
