SWPP -- Source Water Protection Plan We applied for a grant and the steering committee has done the ground work to receive grant money for outlining potential hazards to our water supply. Presenting this to the members tonight allows us to receive grant money just for presenting information to the public.
Our well is tied to the Spring Park reservoir. We identified potential threats to that water supply. Our committee felt like septic systems, chemical spills, pesticides, storm run off and fire are all potential threats to our water system.
We are now in the protection plan phase of our plan. Eagle County says septic systems should be pumped every 2-3 years.
Household cleaners should not be poured down the drain.
Prescription drugs should not be flushed down the toilet.
We have a weather station installed at one of our water pump stations measuring current rain fall data and estimating future reservoir levels based on the rain/snow fall data of this year, compared to previous years.
We have given our emergency response plan, 55 pages to Eagle County Sheriff, Basalt Fire. And other local agencies that respond to emergencies.

Water System Leaks
We have repaired 2 major leaks this past year and one broken fire hydrant.
We will read the meters again prior to April 1 and measure what was was produced and what was billed. Our meter system allows us to be able to see what a homeowner has used by day by hour and the meters are in your house and you can read them your self if you care to monitor it on your end.

Back Flow Prevention
The board of directors has hired Mike Josephson to contact each homeowner and come in and inspect the back flow device.
He can repair a device but he cannot install a new device.
The back flow device once installed and once approved must be re-checked every year. If you have received your survey and not filled in back in please send it back as soon as you can.

We have a website: www.aspenmesaestates.com All the rules and regulations for back flow/cross connections are on the website. The minutes will be posted on the website and this is where you will reference them instead of them being e-mailed to each homeowner. Homeowners should make sure that the Board has their e-mail address and phone number. Reminder that homeowners are eligible for MRI trash service at $25 per month/ $75 per quarter.
