Regular Meeting Called to Order at 5PM Tuesday, July 25, 2023. 


General Manager Report:

  • On July 11th, GM received a call from the Chief of Operations: the Transfer Switch at the Water Treatment Plant had caught fire. This is what transfers electricity between PG&E and the GSD Generator.  Wahlund Construction was contacted about this emergency and they sent their electrician to make the necessary repairs on July 12th.
  • The GSD Operations Team presented their plan for alternative 'manual' measures until the electrician could requisition parts or a new transfer switch, to resume automatic backup electricity in case of a power outage.  This prompt, albeit lengthy, response to work together to keep our Community Water Tanks full, deserves much thanks, particularly during the hot, dry summer season. THANKS GUYS!
  • Board Member, CSDA 'required trainings' have free, easy online access.  All the links have been sent directly to BOD.  The GSD website also has the complete list of CSDA links located under Transparency.
  • An additional 'General Overview' of the current Tank Replacement Project was added to the meeting as a handout, from the Consulting Project Manager.


Regular Agenda Items & General Business  proceeded with full Board support and no additional Public Comments were recorded.
