5.1. Water Department Report (O’Gorman)
The treatment plant is averaging 390,000 gallons per day. Staff replaced the old Chlorine analyzer this month. This will be useful charting the chlorine levels. The old one died, and no parts were available. The State was good with the new one, of the same make, newer model. We are still working on leaks, they never end.
5.2. Wastewater Report (O’Gorman & Kaspari, GHD)
Manager O’Gorman to discuss new plan for disposal site location (leach field) at Veteran’s park below soccor field. If we get the 1 acre for the treatment facility, we hope to pipe the clean filtered water to Veterans Park to the socor field. Leach lines will be buried down 5 to 6 feet. Manager O’Gorman has met with Roy O’Conner with North Coast Regional Water Board said that would be the perfect location. If this takes place we will also put in a new automatic sprinkler systerm for the socer field.
