New Issues / Information
- Emergency Plan- Jonathan has suggested adding some additional information to the plan.
- Treatment system- Bracewell has submitted a proposal to bring on well 1 back online, and add a filtration system.
- Estimated cost is $50,000
- $15,000 for permits, operations manual, etc
- $56,000 for the treatment unit with filter membrane, storage tanks and pumps
- TTHM: Compliance Order 02_05_17R_001 TTHM. We are currently in compliance. Need to continue to report for one year after we meet compliance.
- Arsenic MCL: 02_05_16R-005 arsenic levels above recommended levels for drinking water. March 2019 was first month to be in compliance with arsenic levels. Our results are better, but our average is above the recommended level. Blending wells 1 and 2 should help us to get below recommended levels, however well 1 will need to come back online before this blending can happen.
