December 2018 Operations Report

Kevin Southworth, Operations Manager

During this month we:

  • Replaced 40 meter registers (that lost battery power that transmits the reading to our vehicle). Although the new meters are new purchases, the old replaced meters are still in warranty. So Master Meter will provide 40 replacement meter registers for our next round of battery failures.

  • Received 70 folding chairs to complete our new furniture setup.

Repairs on a major leak on Hales Passage (40044) will begin in January. During December we were able to shut off the broken line since it serves only one part-time resident who needed water about 9 days this month. The difference in distribution usage helped us estimate the lost water at this location.
