    C. Marc spoke with Ray Solomon from Water Supply in regards to the sulfur smell. He said that Iron and maganese will always come back to give

you discolored water. He suggest a test kit to test for these and to document the findings. Marc researched test kits from Hach. He found one that

would test for chlorine, phosphate, iron, maganese and hydrogen sulfide it is the DR800 for a cost of $1,236.05. Ray said that a resolution to the

problem would be a green sand filter . An engineer would be needed to design the system, Ray recommended that we request a pilot project to make

sure what they plan to do would work. Joe made a motion to purchase the DR800 and accessories not to exceed $1,500.00. Motion was seconded by Dick

and was so approved. In the long term Peter would like to be able to remove the maganese another process for this is aeration of water.

    D. Marc spoke with Bob Ettensperg about repairing the gate. Marc took it off and flattened with the back hoe. Next a small section will have

to be cut off  to move the lock box Bob will come and do it there Marc will need to supply a generator to do this.
