5. Old Business

  1. a.  Bill from state-for water use, for $10.00. According to the state this bill was not for water use, but a fine for filing a state tax withholding form late. Since we do not withhold any state tax money, we should contact them and cancel that number to prevent such fines in the future.
  2. b.  Close-out of Wellhead Grant (7/29/94). Harold sent a letter requesting the final monies due to the District from the grant.
  3. c.  Receipt of W-M update of operator's manual. Harold has received a copy of the manual. Webster Martin
  4. d.  New hydrant at BRMS. A new standard hydrant has been installed in front of BRMS and is served by a new 8" D.I. main. It replaces an existing non-standard hydrant that was served by only a 4" line. Lameroux & Stone is the engineering firm. Marc has made numerous trips to the site during the installation.
  5. Sally & Bill Baldwin request? There has been no communication from the Baldwins. Harold will contact them and remind them of the need for 35 p.s.i. at their kitchen sink.
  6. Installation of backflow (dual checks) in the 20+ elevated homes. More customers will be contacted regarding the installation of these backflow valves.

6. New Business.

a. ISO Testing - Aug. 10, 9:00 a.m. Harold will meet with Mr. Shelley from ISO at the fire station to test hydrant flows. Notices should be placed in the Post Office and THE BURLINGTON FREE PRESS notifying District customers to expect roiled water throughout the day.
