Old Business

A - Review Grant Meter status – Got paperwork from state, according to paperwork, not really a grant but a loan. Tim contacted the lawyer and lawyer said no repercussions to back out of grant. Replied to state that we had already replaced faulty meters, State replied okay so grant has been dropped.

B – Tank cleaning - Cleaning was done, leaks were minor and patched. Written schedule to exercise valves, valves have been exercised. Wrote to State – tanks are self-inspected, no cleaning needs to be done on pressure tank. Relief Valve – leaking – found valve is good but nipple into valve was leaking. Nipple was replaced.

C – Parts Storage - in good shape

D & E– Site 1 MIOX system – Received MIOX Cell but too big to fit in building. Trying to find contractor to enlarge building and to upgrade electrical.

F – Bleed line for Site 1 – going to check with Ron for status

G – Backflow Preventer – Table for now

H – Blended water – State highly recommends that we are able to hook into water elsewhere incase of emergency. Have reciprocal agreement with Wester Skies Trailer Park to supply/receive water in case of emergency. Will use meter to keep track of water usage. Will have meter labeled so we know what it is. State told LA County Resource Board that AMWC is interested in hooking up with LA county water. LA county sent letter on what we would have to do to hook up with them. Alma has not looked into it yet. Barry made a motion for Alma to not submit letter, just drop it until the Resource Board inquires about it again. Ruby Cosby seconded the motion. The motion passed 6-0-0.
