Treatment plant is running well, we only had some minor maintenance this month. In June we showed no water savings when comparing to June 2013. July we
showed 23-24% savings. The stamp on our bills, and banner down town is working. The down side is loss of income. We fixed 2 leaks, one at the cemetery the
other at Kimtu. Staff is patrolling the creek for camps and removing them ASAP. It costs to protect our watershed in man hours and dump fees.
