JERICHO - UNDERHILL WATER DISTRICT

UNDERHILL, VERMONT 05489

February 4, 1991 Minutes

The monthly meeting of the Jericho-Underhill Water District was held on February 4, 1991 in the basement of the United Church of Underhill. President David Damkot called the meeting to order at 7:05 P.M. Those present were David, trustees Doug Keith and Harold Sargent, clerk Evelyn Sargent and for a brief time, Stan Wilbur of Webster-Martin, Inc.

The minutes of the previous meeting on Jan. 7, 1991 were reviewed and accepted.

The financial reports of the District and the reports of the District's Project were reviewed and accepted.

There was no operator's report. Twenty (20) new meters had been purchased and the problem meters that came to our attention at the time of the last meter reading Jan. 1st will be replaced. The Trustees discussed testing these old meters to verify that they were worn out and unuseable. There was a problem with the curb stop at the United Christian Assembly that had to be repaired.

Under old business the issue of liquidated damages regarding the well construction project was discussed. The treasurer will get these figures together as of January 24, 1991, as these figures relate to the meeting between Kenneth Gaynor of Hydro-Group, Webster-Martin engineers and the Trustees to determine the project's financial status and time overrun. Stan Wilbur was in attendance to discuss Webster-Martin's estimated cost and gave figures for their extra engineering costs due to the extended completion date and to help sort out liquidated damage proposals that were heard from Hydro-Group at the January 25th joint meeting. Mr. Wilbur also addressed the list of NOT APPROVED portions of well site from the State Department of Health.

Harold suggested we contract with Wagner, Heindel & Noyes, Inc. to evaluate Hydro-Group's contention that NO improvement was made in the well by hydro-jetting. Stan stated that something had improved the well because the production well is approved for 150 G.P.M. and earlier comments from the Health Department suggested only 100 G.P.M. maximum yield. Harold made the motion to have a local hydrogeologists review the data submitted by Hydro-Group (Ken Gaynor) at a cost not to exceed $200.00. Doug seconded. the motion and the motion carried. Harold will contact Kenneth Bannister of Wagner, Heindel and Noyes, Inc. and Stan will provide all necessary data to them for the analysis.

In response to the NOT APPROVED list from the State Health Department: 1. Ground Water Associates will produce a copy of their report on surrounding ground water effect on the well site, 2. Harold needs to complete the Management Plan, but he needs the well head protection plan and map todo the job, 3. the test results are in from Ground Water Assoc., 4. Blow & Cote has started abating their construction punch list.

Mr. Wilbur was asked to provide an estimate of costs surrounding placement of the test well on line as an augmentary production well in order to get the original yield from the aquifer (250 G.P.M.). Stan suggested if it is developed, running the pumps alternating to keep electric costs low. Dave said that CVPS would do an analysis of our power usage.

A motion was made, seconded and passed to send a donation of $100.00 to the United Church of Underhill in appreciation of the use of the building for our annual and regular monthly meetings.

Harold stated he had ordered the polyphosphate for sequesting the manganese.

It comes as a liquid that must be maintained above 40 degrees F or it will crystalize.

The bills were reviewed and signed.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:15 P.M.

Respectfully submitted: Evelyn O. Sargent, Clerk
