Beginning Thursday June 6, we will be implementing our regular summer outdoor watering restriction schedule which will be as follows:
West side of Town (Bank side) Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays
East side of Town (Co-op side) Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays
No outdoor watering on Wednesdays. It is recommended that watering be avoided during the hottest time of the day (normally Noon to 5 p.m.)
Members from Sapphire were recently in Craik to install filter media into the 4 pressurized vessels. 16 ‘totes’ in total was installed over the course of several days. Each tote equating to approximately 1000 pounds.
Further plumbing is presently being worked on to connect the biological filters.
Additionally, some members were initiating the wiring work to connect actuated valves and flow meters.
Monday, November 19th, we will be receiving two large skids that house the nano-filtration components.
While much work remains, it is very encouraging to witness the changes that are occuring on a day to day basis.
Infrastructure work is the focus right now at the water plant.
Several more transformers and electrical junction boxes have been installed. Much of the wiring tray has been installed and some cabling completed.
Further, actuated valves have been installed on the pressurized biological filter tanks and associated plumbing mostly complete.
Presently, contractors are busy starting to load the filter media into the pressurized tanks. At least 2000 kilograms have already been installed with a ‘mere’ 15000 kilograms to go.
We are expecting delivery of the nano-filter membranes shortly. It is a very busy water plant full of concurrent activities all overlapping as we would like them.
