  4. d.     Marc reported that his liability insurance has been cancelled due to his work with the water district. He asked if the district's liability insurance would cover the work he does for us since he is classified a subcontractor (operator). We will need to get in writing from our insurance company whether or not Marc is covered and to what extent. Harold will look into this.
  5. e.     Marc described to the Board some of the difficulties he is experiencing in his application process for a Master Plumber's License.

4. Customer Concerns.

  1. High pressure - Hathaway, Valley's Edge. The customer was advised by Harold to have a plumber install a pressure relief valve. The problem was thermal-induced pressure.
