Hi, I hope this finds you all well. PLEASE NOTE YOU CAN CALL IN to the Board Meeting (see above). First off, I want to assure you that through this crisis, your water is SAFE to drink. We have ample staffing and there is no Coronavirus in your drinking water. Here is the link to information on how the Coronavirus does NOT impact your tap water, thus, NO need to buy bottled water.
Interesting Agenda Items:
Item 6. Declaring as Surplus Certain Real Properties in El Monte Valley: We do not need these properties and the The subject parcels, totaling 337.95 acres, located in unincorporated Lakeside, county of San Diego. The San Diego River Conservancy has the right of first refusal. This land is currently used by lease holders (Little League field, horse stables etc.) and the ideal buyer of the land will assume the leases for continuation of existing uses.
Item 15 ACTION ITEM – The Board Authorize the General Manager to Temporarily Suspend Certain Provisions of Section 2.5, Turn off for Nonpayment of the District's Policies and Procedures Manual. In light of the recent state of emergency to allow access to water for sanitation purposes and to help prevent the continued spread of COVID19.
FLUME REBATES ARE STILL AVAILABLE.
We have given out over 120 water meter smart rebates ($100 Check Back)! I love my Flume (no plumbing modifications needed), I know how much water I use every day and minute and I am notified if I have a leak or left the water running more than 2 hours! These rebates were from a Grant funded by the Metropolitan Water District https://hwd.com/smart-leak-detector-rebate/
As always, I welcome your comments and feedback.
Please stay well - peace,
