  •  Removed pump-back pump from well for repair.
  • Clubhouse and deck prep for painting (ongoing).
  • Repaired damaged antenna for Master Meter computer.

On June 22 Jolyn Leslie, DOH Regional Engineer, presented Scenic Estates with the Gold Certificate of Achievement for achieving water turbidity optimization goals for 10 years (2008-2017).

There was an apparent break-in at the Maintenance Shop on June 8 when the LISECC modem and router went missing. The modem has been replaced and security cameras will be installed soon.
