SEWER & WATER
As more business' and residents begin to hook up to the new utilities, we have been making inspections of contractors work to ensure that old septic tanks have been pumped, crushed and filled, checking pipe work inside the property, mapping underground pipe work and the location of curb stops. We also install MXU devices to make reading of water meters easier for staff and less invasive for residents.
General duties involve reading well house and lift station meters, inspecting and repairing lift station pumps, maintaining adequate water pressure, monitoring chemical usage, building maintenance at the well houses and water tower, curb stop locates, reading residents water meters, and routine monitoring of well and water tower activity.
Routine flushing and exercising of water hydrants and gate valves, takes place twice a year, in April and October.
