OLD BUSINESS

Engineer Report

Mr. Reich said the Cardinal Ln outfall project was complete and a reimbursement request had been sent to DWI for $315,000. There will be a slight delay in getting the money back as DWI is implementing a new software system and will be unable to process requests for a minimum of 30 days. There are no updates on the Dogwood water project or AIA grants. Mr. Reich said he would begin estimating costs of a sidewalk extension from Cabin Rd to Birch Ln. He told the board that discussions with The City of Burlington were needed to update the water and sewer agreements.

 

ORC Report

Mr. Allred said the pump stations were running well. The Birch and NC 62 stations had yearly servicing completed. November THM samples were good. There has been no response from the State yet on the sewer leak last month.
