Ron Fussell our operations manager has presented this report of the operations and project updates for July 2015.
The crew responded to 14 service calls in July, three were markings and the others were turn offs, turn on calls, inspect customer shut off valves and meter re-reads. There were 6 private leaks identified by AMR. All of the private leaks have been fixed. Shelbie had 5 stock transfers in July. Juan and Wayne have been exercising all of the street valves.

During the month of July we purchased 1,342,400 gallons of water from CLAWA and our wells produced 383,771 gallons. During the month of June we purchased 1,085,400 gallons of water from CLAWA and our wells produced 488,276 gallons.

The total precipitation for the month of July was 3.89”.

The Water Tank Maintenance Project – Last week Liquivision divers cleaned and inspected our current water storage tank on Sycamore Lane. The contractors stated that the tank is currently in very good condition but that it will need to be recoated on the inside within 3 to 4 years. Evans Painting contractors are currently painting the outside of the tank and the project is scheduled for completion by September 2, 2015.

Water Treatment Plan – AVMSC in conjunction with NV-5 Engineering has suspended our water blending plan in favor of a water treatment system which will treat our well water and allow us to utilize all of our wells. Our staff will construct a building in our AVMSC yard to house the filtration systems equipment. Our staff is currently in the process of drawing plans and getting permits for the construction of the building.

AVMSC motion to purchase a plow for the Skid Steer– On August 25, 2015 the AVMSC Board passed a motion to approve the purchase of a plow for the Skid Steer from Steve Newcombe.

Yard Expansion Project – AVMSC recently had a few diseased cedar trees removed as part of our yard expansion project. We are continuing to pursue the purchase of Lot 1770 which is adjacent to the AVMSC yard and Ron is getting estimates to redo the fencing around our yard.

Recycling Program Update – Ron says that the recycling program has been very successful and Ron would like to thank the community for their cooperation. The recycling program is for glass, plastic, aluminum and tin cans and cardboard which must be broken down. Please refer to the website for further details. Ron hopes to expand this recycling program in the future.

Ron also encouraged shareholders, residents and visitors to continue to observe the water conservation requirements and tips provided by the office. A recycling bin is available in the AVMSC yard. Call the office for details.

Ron has commended both the staff and the residents for their diligent efforts toward water conservation which has exceeded the Governor’s 25% reduction rate. He would like to encourage our shareholders, renters and visitors to continue in their conservation efforts. In the coming months Ron and the staff will offer the residents new opportunities for further water conservation.
