Water/Project Report:  Ed checked on pricing for a new meter in the Wellhouse. The price on The Omni brand is the best price at $972 vs $1384.78 for the Turbin brand.

The locks on the water tanks have all been keyed and have been placed on the tanks.

The SCADA system is in place and Ed has made a punchlist of changes that he would like to be made and they have been submitted.

On December 19, Dylan discovered that there was very high usage on the pump, when he checked pumphouse #2 he found 1.5 feet of water inside. A pipe had frozen and broke at the entrance into the wall. A new pump will cost $1300. An insurance claim has been made and a new pump has been ordered. The heaters in the pump houses are running. Ed reported that the new pumps are more efficient and the pump doesn’t need to run as much. It may have sat too long without running.

Randy and Evan have been doing repairs needed to the new building at the green tanks. They have installed new insulation and paneling to the interior.

New Business:  Lois mentioned that the board may want to update the water policy now that the water project is finished.
