Manager’s Monthly Report

Ron Fussell our operations manager has presented this report of the operations and project updates for July 2014.
The crew responded to 8 service calls in July, three were markings and the rest were turn offs, turn on calls, inspect customer shut off valves and meter re-reads. There were no company leaks this month, the AMR system detected 2 leaks at individual homes. Both of the leaks were between 60 – 70 gallons per day and were identified as toilet leaks. The homeowners were notified and the leaks have been fixed. Wayne has been working diligently on the AMR program and identifying the top water consumers. Juan has been trimming back small trees and shrubs in preparation for winter and Shelbie continues to hold everything together here in the office. Six stock transfers were completed this month.

During the month of July we purchased 1,041,100 gallons of water from CLAWA and during the month of June we purchased 1,017,000 gallons. During July we produced 894,219 gallons of water and in June we produced 743,419 gallons. In July 2013 the total water delivered was 2,180,720 gallons and the July 2014 total is 1,935,319 gallons. The difference is 245,401 gallons which is a reduction of more than 10%.

Trinity Construction has submitted a proposal to replace 8 hydrants and the proposal has been approved by the Board. Trinity has scheduled the replacement of all 8 for the first week of September.

Superior Tank has taken over the project of replacing our water holding tank in the AVMSC yard and plans have been submitted to the County for final approval.

Automated Meter Reading project – a total of 188 meters have been installed to date. The streets that have been completed are Sunderland Court, Arrowhead Villas Road, Lords Lane, Knight Court, Dover Court, Bangor Lane and Lake Drive.

Well #4 will be pumped and tested by Clinical Lab on August 20th to determine if it can be brought back on line as it has been inactive for more than years.

Aspen Construction has completed the paving which was budgeted for this year.
There are some small patches that need to be paved. The Board has approved this additional expenditure since the work is needed due to leaks that occurred during the summer.

All three water monitoring stations have been installed on Ivy Lane, Community Drive and Pinnacle Drive. The Department of Health Services (DOHS) has approved the new sampling plan which will start the first Wednesday in September.

Cumorah Tree Services started the stump grinding of 9 stumps that were identified to be a hazard during winter snowplowing. The project will be completed by the end of August.
