Income Report:  Total water income for May was $7462.38. We had a net income of $4736.26. We had a negative 2.4% loss for the month.

Carol made a motion to approve the minutes, seconded by Bobby and approved 4-0.


Water and Project Report: 

Notes from Dylan Striebel:

Non-Project:  Replaced wiring in Jaycox meter pit, hang transmitter back on post, (5/24)

DENR Environmental Fees, standard annual charge, based on population, $100.00

Water loss, -2.4%, see below

Additional costs to replace fuses for well #2 discovered when replacing wire (Morford) and billed directly to WHSD-$260.00

Project:  Well #1 Pump installation complete 5/12, (set at 640 ft), disinfected and sampled 5/13, water deemed safe to drink 5/16


5/16 After Taylor wrapped things up on 5/13, Well #2 would not start, no water pumped since 5/13, all tanks essentially empty, started Well #1 on hand, call Morford, (tripped overload relay). Fixed the same day and back on line, however it took a couple days before all tanks full again and we read meters on the 16th. (reason for negative water loss).

All Taylor work complete, performed final inspection 6/3, invoice was over bid amount by $2169, (pump test add on due to our pump not starting ($1500), wiring for well #2 ($200) and Sine wave filter ($400)

Well #2--Had Taylor verify Morford’s OHM numbers, (ok), he recommended not replacing DVDT filter with Sine Wave filter until we replace pump. Also had him reset pump parameters, (ramp up and ramp down/start and stop), to allow pump to operate more efficiently and hopefully, extend pump life.

Pump House #2--All items received and ready to install, plumbing rebid by Powles, $1700-$2000 plus meter and materials (estimate $4000.00) Total $6000

Tank and Building rebid as required by DENR--Bid opening 6/9

The total remaining SRF Funding available is $187,604.00. The final bid for the remaining improvements is $183,223.00.

Carol made a motion to approve the water and project report, seconded by Bobby and approved 4-0.


Road Report:  There was a tax deposit made into the account in the amount of $3621.67.


Old Business:  Elections will be held on July 12. There is 1 position open. A letter was placed in the water mailbox notifying residents of the opening.

The new fire extinguishers have been installed.


New Business:  The Neighborhood Picnic will be held on Sunday, August 28 @ 1:00PM. Location to be determined.
