Manager’s Monthly Report

Ron Fussell our operations manager has presented this report of the operations and project updates for September 2014.
The crew responded to 12 service calls in September, five were markings and the rest were turn offs, turn on calls, inspect customer shut off valves and meter re-reads. There was one company leak this month at 613 Oakmont Lane. Wayne has been working on the new shop bench and storage shelves. Juan has been installing new AMR meters and flushing dead ends. Even with the current water restrictions, we are still required to flush our dead end lines at least twice per year. Shelbie had 6 stock transfers in September.

During the month of September, we purchased 1,123,100 gallons of water from CLAWA and during the month of August, we purchased 1,077,800 gallons. During September, we produced 519,388 gallons of water and in August, we produced 701,115 gallons. In September 2013, the total water delivered was 1,885,009 gallons and the September 2014 total is 1,642,488 gallons. The difference is 242,521 gallons, which is a reduction of more than 12%.

Tank Site Projects – The small water holding tank in the AVMSC yard is being replaced by Superior Tank Inc. Demolition of the old tank is scheduled for next week and the new tank is scheduled to be installed and on line by the middle to end of November. As for the Sycamore (large) tank site project, the geotechnical report and survey completed by CSC has been sent to NV5 engineers for their review and recommendations.

Automated Meter Reading project – a total of over 200 meters have been installed as of the end of September, and we received another shipment of 100 meters last Thursday and these will be installed by the end of the year. The streets that have been completed are Sunderland Court, Arrowhead Villas Road, Lords Lane, Knight Court, Dover Court, Bangor Lane, Sycamore and Lake Drive.

Well #4 was pumped and the first tests concluded that it may be able to be brought back on line. A final title #22 test will be required by the DOHS (Department of Health Services) before we can officially use it for daily production. DOHS is currently looking into their records to see if there is any other reason that the well was taken off line before we order the title #22 test.
