Well Water Flush Date: SUNDAY, March 26, 2017 starting at 11:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m

March 15, 2017

 

Dear Neighbors:

 

From time to time, Belmont Terrace Mutual Water Co. must flush out the water system in order to remove sand and other sediment from the lines.  We will be flushing the system on SUNDAY, March  26, 2017 starting at 11:00 A.M.  We should be finished by 3:30 P.M.

 

Please DO NOT TURN ON ANY WATER during this time.  If you do, it is likely that sediment will be drawn into your home’s water lines.  There will be orange cones by all the fire hydrants.  Once the flush is done we will remove all the cones.

 

We will place flush signs the day/night before at Danmar (near church), Norlee near Bella Vista, and Danmar at Ragel.  We will place orange cones next to all the fire hydrants Sunday morning before we start flush.  The cones will stay will stay in place until we are finished flushing.  Once ALL the cones are removed from in front of the fire hydrants water will be available to use.

 

If you do experience cloudy water, please run a back yard hose or faucet for 5-10 minutes to help flush out the sediment.  If you have problems after that, please call the Water Operator at 707-820-7787.

 

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Bruce Petersilge and Debby Turner

Hot Day’s Are Here….

Be sure to conserve water on these hot days.  We have a lot of users and we do not want to waste water.  Lawns should only be water for 5-10 minutes every other day.  On the HOTTEST of days; Run for an extra 5 minutes.  IF you are on a slope; cut the run times in half and water with time between them (let the water soak in).  This will keep water from running down the gutters.  There is chlorine in our water and it is not good for fish.  Please keep chlorinated water out of the creeks keep your sprinkler’s water on your property.

Thank you for conserving.

2nd Sample passed

We are now up and operational on our new pipes with our dual pressure tanks.  We are having a little trouble getting the pressure tanks up to the correct pressure but that should be cleared up by morning.

Thank you everyone you did a great job conserving water during this construction project.

If you have problems with sand or dirty water please run the hose in the back yard for 5 minutes or so should clear all the water through the house.

I found these tips out on a website:
The Boil Water Notice will be lifted once the water is safe to drink.

After a Boil water Notice has been lifted

  • Flush water farthest from the inlet to the house first.  (Most cases the backyard)
  • Flush all water-using fixtures for 1 minute.
  • Run cold-water faucets and drinking fountains for 1 minute before using the water.
  • Drain and flush all ice-making machines in your refrigerator.
  • Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle.
  • Drain and refill hot water tanks set below 45 C (normal setting is 60 C).
  • Change any pre-treatment filters (under sink style and refrigerator water filters, carbon block, activated carbon, sediment filters, etc.).

New Chlorination system is now up and running.  Please bare with us for the next week or so while we adjust the level of Chlorine back to the usual level.  We are running it higher than we normally do.  If you are sensitive to the Chlorine you may need to do extra filtering for the next week or so.

Sorry for any inconveniences regarding this.  Please feel free to ask questions if you need to.

Sincerely,

Bruce Petersilge (820-7787) and Debby Turner (820-7633)

What Specifically Happened at Belmont Terrace?

We planned on supplying water to the whole Terrace with water during the construction project.  What we were counting on is the closure of the Water Main on Tochinni leading back up to the booster pumps and pressure tanks.   What happened was the shut-off valve did not close properly and all the way for the welding to occur for the construction / destruction project at the well.

We were lucky that the outage was as short as it was.  Almost all of the houses on the top of Bella Vista Drive had their water turned off trying to keep the water in the houses.  We finished turning on the water to all the houses at 5:00 pm.

Again, Sorry for any inconveniences.
