  2. There was a tank overflow last week due to a power outage on Maple Ridge Road. The pump did not get a signal and interpreted that to mean the tank was empty and overfilled it.

c. Other,

Because of the ledge in the Maple Ridge area the service line to tie property at 41 Maple Ridge Road has become exposed. Harold and Marc will investigate the problem on Wednesday, October 10th to decide what the best way to approach it is. It was felt that the right of way along the road might be a good solution.
