1. Review & approval of previous minutes. Reviewed and approved, with correction of Les Allen and water usage amount.

2. Review & approval of financial statements. Reviewed and approved.

3. Operators Report.

  • Water use 40,281 gallons,
  • Nitrate and Bacteria results good.
  • Marc suggested seeing if the state could provide us with pamphlets on conserving water to mail out due to the drought.
  • Marc attended the seminar Protecting Public Water Systems, it was very good. He received a Contingency Plan Format at the seminar which he would like to use in our district.
  •  He spoke with Kendall Chamberlin at the Richmond Water System about advantages of having a fence around the tank, he said they have caught some people inside. They have a small building to protect the electrical and plan to add some sensor lights. Marc said possible sensor lights or possibly an entry alarm to let us know when someone is going in and out would be good. The goal would be to Delay and Deter.
  •  Marc suggest that we keep security information private from the public and also water district members so  that there is no chance of someone knowing how to break it down.
  •  Dick would like to have a special meeting to discuss the security issues for the district.
  •  Marc will pick up some deicer for Joe so he can get the lock open when frozen.

  B. Kevin Milne- A leak was repaired and the meter was exchanged.
  C. Serah Fisher- Water line frozen it was thawed with a torch, the responsibility belongs to the customer so they will be billed for what the district was charged.

6. Repairs, Maintenance and Connections- Work was done on 20 meters for this month a total of 28 meters have been changed so far.

 F. Ken Mitchell (Map)- Response was received from Vince Paradis and his recommendation is that the district need not endure the expense of making a mylar copy and having it recorded. The board made a motion to make the mylar and have it recorded the motion was approved and Dick will get the copy made at Reprographics and then it will be recorded at the Underhill Town Clerks office.

 G. Pump house #1- Peter reported the electrical was disconnected there because it was not up to code. Marc will check to see if it we have what is needed down there.

Water Operator's Certification Meeting- There will be a meeting to discuss the state’s new proposed operator's certification, they would like operator's to do all testing for their district.
