Manager Neugebauer reported to the Board on the following:
1) We assisted with completing the mainline extension in the Smithwick Development.
2) Grady Lockhart finished trenching the line extension to his property last week. We should have the PRV completed along with the line connection this week.
3) We had another leak in the Clearwater Lake Estates Development at a glued T. We dug up and replaced /capped 3 other potential leak spots and still have 2 left to complete.
4) The flooding in Custer plugged up our culverts to the Fairburn well site and caused some water to run over them. It didn’t wash them out or cause any major damage considering this was called a 100 year flood. I hope to get the backhoe back up there by the end of the week and clear the rubble and do a little dirt work.
5) Bids were received and opened last week for the Fairburn Well Project.
