Alan Morse reported for the officers as follows: "steam jenny was purchased to thaw frozen service lines. This made it possible to thaw frozen lines without hiring someone with a welder. In April_ a pipe locator was purchased to locate unknown curb stops and valves. Both pieces of new equipment have been utilized a number of times. In May the storage tank was inspected for rust and sediment by an engineer from UVM. The tank is in excellent condition and required only spot painting next summer. An unfortunate side effect of the inspection was the need to chlorinate the water heavily before and after the inspection. In July a hydrant was replaced on Steam Mill Road as the result of a motor vehicle accident. Also in July the old pump house and reservoir at Lee Murray's was demolished. In August all the wells were purged to help increase their capacity. Both pumps were repaired by Aetna Engineering in Rutland. In September asphalt snot paving was done to repair the locations of previous dig-ups.
