General Manager Report:

  • Winter Preparations are underway, analzing potential problem areas for the system or equipment. Part of the analysis is replacing failing, or low performance, equipement and water meters. Customers continue to assist in identifying areas, such as drainage issues, leaks or exposed pipes.
  • G.S.D. Staff and Jennie Short have been working diligently on the Tank Replacement Project, complying with reporting requirements and updating operational plans. Steady progress is slow, but deliberate improvements will assist us now and in the future.
  • Multiple meetings and trainings with regard to funding, planning and requirements from various regulatory aganecies and local improvement plans are being attended, including funding meetings in November. The hope is that money will be available for the increased cost of conducting business and completion of projects.
  • Board discussion on item B.6, regarding communications with G.S.D.  Attorney and the Timberland Resource Consultants about a timber harvest plan and logging-truck road through the middle of the G.S.D. Wastewater Treatment Facility are ongoing.
  • Humboldt County Spervisor, Michelle Bushnell contacted the G.S.D. about partnering with the county and state in sponsoring a Clean California, 'large item' Dump Day,  promoted by Cal-Trans for our area. There are many  logistal details to gather before arriving at a forseeable date regarding this event.
