Minutes of April 12, 2018
In attendance:          Board members: Julian Rogers, Garry Solmonson, Summer Garcia
Guests:                    Bill Biermann, Sandy Ayala, Cliff Fasnacht
Meeting convened at : 7:15pm
Minutes were approved from March 13, 2018 meeting
Guest Speakers Cliff and Sandy’s update and comments on our system:
a. Well 1 is still testing positive for bacteria and microbial contamination as a result of surface water infiltration.  They do not believe well 1 is salvageable and recommend drilling a well in a new location after researching nearby wells and
water chemistry.  They suggest we look into the State Revolving Fund (SFR) for financial assistance. They suggested we would need to revamp our treatment system to handle surface water in order to use Well 1 again.
b. The media in Filter #2 at Well 2 was replaced by the manufacturer in March.  No cost to us at this time but Cliff hasn’t decided how to charge for his labor hours.  Filter #1 is next to have the media replaced as well.  Well 2 is currently
under the MCL for manganese.  The Disinfection Byproducts (DPB’s) are undetectable now. We are only required to test and report these every quarter now.  We are still over the MCL for arsenic and the post readings fluctuate.  Cliff
 is working on changing our water chemistry to assist the filter media in removing the arsenic.
c. Cliff agreed to assist with the State response to compliance action plan of 1/19/2018.
Financials deferred until May meeting
