A- Site 1 MIOX cell/system Install - Our electrician will do install, but new bldg. is needed. MIOX will be out after the 1st of the year to teach us how to set it up and how to use it. Old system is still working fine. Ron would like to leave old MIOX/ current system in current 2nd bldg. (as backup), put new one on other side of wall since it will not fit in old bldg. Need to find out how often need to run old one, to keep it clean & working, once we start using new MIOX system.
B- Site 1 Electrical Bldg. Requirements- Need to check with our current electrician to give us a bid. Also check with Garry electrician. David Coleman, for bid. Ben has not heard back regarding cost of container for new bldg. Need to check with electrician what are our needs!
C- Bigger Site 1Relief Valve- Air bleed valve from storage tank so pump will work right, not suck air. Currently have to manually open, suck little line it takes up to 30 minutes to bleed line. Need to have guys look into it.
D- Backflow Preventer- Regarding Tupaks- Who is requiring this? Maybe state? We should be wanting it? Isn't there one already there? Should be on their side of meter. What is the requirement? Will table for now and Anna will find out who requires it.
A. Budget for 2021- There is a current for 2020, will write new budget in 2021. Put in infrastructure update in 2021.
B. Fire Hydrants Review- Not really clear how many feet between hydrants. Ben checked ours is at most, 4 properties, biggest distance between fire hydrants is approx.. 600 feet. Why do we have a valve for a hydrant , but no hydrant. Maybe it was to plan for the future? City has not denied permit because of hydrants.
