Manager’s Monthly Report

Ron Fussell our operations manager has presented this report of the operations and project updates for January 2015.
The crew responded to 22 service calls in January, three were markings and the rest were turn offs, turn on calls, inspect customer shut off valves and meter re-reads. There were 8 private leaks identified by AMR. The total water loss was approximately 1100 gallons per day. Shelbie had 6 stock transfers in January. Juan repaired or replaced five road signs on West Victoria, East Victoria, Larchmont, Lake Drive and Arrowhead Villas Road.

During the month of January we purchased 1,791,300 gallons of water from CLAWA and our wells produced 101,222 gallons. In January 2014 the total water delivered was 1,929,086 gallons and the January 2015 total is 1,892,522 gallons. The difference is 38,564 gallons which is a reduction of 2%.

The total precipitation for the month of January was 1.24”.

The Holding Tank Replacement Project – The small water holding tank in the AVMSC yard has been replaced by Superior Tank Inc., and is now back on-line and performing well. Some concrete and asphalt finish work will be completed around the tank by Aspen Construction this summer.

Automated Meter Reading project – Ron advises that we have installed a total of 420 automated meters to date. The entire East Side of the Arrowhead Villas (Arrowhead Villas Road to Kuffel Canyon) has been completely upgraded to the new automated meters. Additionally, Pinnacle, Circle, Ridge and Mill Ct. are complete. Also all of the top 10 water consumers now have automated meters so as to better assist them in reducing their overall water use. An additional 100 AMR water meters were ordered in January and will be delivered and installed within the next few weeks weather permitting.

Aspen Construction has submitted a road improvement proposal plan to the Board and it will be reviewed by the Board for approval. The first phase should begin this Spring and Summer.

Aspen Construction has also submitted a proposal to expand the yard area for storage of equipment, cinders, and class II base materials. The Board will review this proposal before approval and likely will coordinate this project with Aspen Constructions concrete and asphalt project during the Spring and Summer.
