WATER:               REPORTED BY PHIL LANDRU

 

  •  The desk top study has been completed by Jim Dwyer of ESC Environmental and submitted to the village. A meeting will be scheduled with Jim Dwyer and Lee Bergus of the County Health Department to discuss the results of the study and the best course of action to take moving forward with treatment options based on the results of the study. The village will be asking Jim Dwyer to expand in detail, on all of the potential issues involved with raising the pH of our drinking water. And there will also be discussion with the health department about a cooperative effort to consult with the DEC about the possibility of rescinding its disapproval on the use of Phosphate.
  • The second cold snap of the season must have froze and burst a few more plumbing lines in some of the vacant homes in the village, as water usage has been a little high for this time of year. the reports of leaks have slowly been being reported and our usage is beginning to get back to normal. If anybody sees or hears running water at neighboring houses or in their daily travels. we’d appreciate it if you called the village hall and made a report.
  • We’ve been having a problem with the sludge collection valve getting stuck in the open position on the Flocculator at the plant. Causing the sludge collection tanks to overflow. The running water has been quickly recognized and the valve manually closed. The valve actuator motor has been repaired and reinstalled saving the cost of a new valve.
  • Water meters were all read this week and submitted to the village hall for billing.

 

 

 

VILLAGE CLERL PAT OLSEN – PHIL DID GO OUT TO READ METERS ALREADY IN THE HOPE OF FINDING SOME VERY LARGE USAGE, AND WE DID FIND TWO LEAKS AS OF TODAY. 

 

TRUSTEE CHAD SELLIER – ARE THEY VACANT PROPERTIES?

 

PAT OLSEN – YES THEY ARE.

WE WILL GO FROM THERE.
