             Bacteria results negative.

             Fluoride results within tolerance 

    B. Water usage is average. 

    C. Marc questioned us having to sample for VOC's since the tank is not in service and the tank is our cause of the VOC's. Marc called Billy Kahn and explained the situation and he said that we would not have to test for VOC's at this time. 

    D. The state testing requirements for the year have been received. The Nitrate test was done for the 1st quarter 

     E. The results of the Sanitary Survey have been received. The results showed some deficiencies. The majority are at the Cistern , they would like the steel cover replaced with a screened vent also a control system with an alarm that would sense the water levels and the storage overflow screened with a finer mess screen and the Cistern overflow pipe should be 12" above ground. They would also like the screen on Poker Hill changed to a 24 mesh or flapper valve, Marc feels a flapper valve would work better. Marc comprised a letter to Water Supply stating how he felt the regulations they were asking us to follow did not pertain. The Board approved the letter and  he was told to go ahead and send it. A response was requested and then we will continue from there. 

4.  Customer concerns/comments. 

     A. Ken Mitchell let the Board know that he thought they should do some maintenance work on the cinder block building, the roof is rusting and the border needs repair. He also let the board know that there was someone down there looking for water. Marc thought it might be Steve Owen since he hauls water.
