The July 2018 Financial Report was reviewed and discussed by the Board. Anna moved to accept the Financial Report as presented. Karen seconded the motion. The motion passed by a vote of 6-0-0.
1.Pump pressure Issue: The issue of losing system pressure was discussed again. Wes says that a part must be replaced on the booster pump at Site 1 but that will only alleviate part of the problem. Air is getting into the clear well and must be bled out. Barry did state that the bleeder line at Site 1 will need to be replaced as it is VERY slow to bleed out as it is too small. Barry and Garry will find out the size of the clear well. Further action may need to be taken upon further review.
1.Lead & Copper Testing: AMWC water must be tested for lead and copper (state mandated). 10 samples are needed from various locations in the water district at the end point of delivery (homes and businesses). Each Board member (6 present) took a sample bottle for collection of water samples from inside their homes. The remaining 4 samples were collected by other shareholders. Thank you to all who participated in this testing. The results will be delineated next month.
