To: Jan Sweigert / Jonathan Weininger                                               July 14, 2017
From: Bill Biermann – VP BRMWC
Subject: Progress report for April 1 – June 30. (Compliance order no. 02_05_16R_005)

This is the April 1 – June 30 progress report on the corrective action plan, to reduce arsenic levels, as presented on February 8, 2017.

Step one of the action plan was completed on June 7, 2017. The replacement of the filter media and installation of a meter went without a problem.

3 sets of Arsenic readings were taken pre and post of the filter before the media was changed. Blended readings from well #1 and well #2 are as follows:

  • 22 Feb, 2017:  Pre – 20 ugl/l,  Post – 8ug/l
  • 1 Mar, 2017:  Pre – 21 ugl/l,  Post – 9ug/l
  • 9 Mar, 2017:  Pre – 12 ugl/l,  Post – 11ug/l

As of today I have no test data for arsenic since the filter media was changed.

Starting of step 2, cleaning and refurbish of well #2, cannot be started until well #1 is back on line. Well #1 has been offline since Jan 16, 2017 at your request. Testing of well #1 is in progress. Either Dougherty or myself will let you know of the results.

Thank you,
Bill Biermann – VP Best Road Mutual Water
