2019 Fall Newsletter Water District # 1

     WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR WATER DISTRICT?

  • Problems with pump control. Our radio communications from the storage tank to the pump house have not been reliable. We’ve had to turn pumps on/off manually.  We are looking into an alternative method for pump control.
  • The Variable Frequency Drives, (VFD’s) installed last year were overheating and shutting down. We’ve been operating with the cabinet door open to facilitate cooling. The room is small, with no ventilation, so we just installed an AC.  Hope it resolves the problem.
  • Quarterly Bills – Meter reading problems.  The meter reader that we hired last year has had too many faulty readings. We will give him one more chance.  By the way, if you know of someone who might be interested in doing this job once per quarter, have him/her contact us at the Water District Office, 845 758 4608.
