Under the Water report, H.C. Pace reported that the schedule for water line replacement is to be done by year end. Third quarter water billing is complete.

The neighborhood’s water usage is governed by the State of Colorado. If the pump permit limit is ever exceeded, the water could be shut off. Medora will send out a letter and or phone call to the eight highest users expressing the need for conservation practices. Discussion ensued including the Board addressing the water billing tier system, location within the neighborhood of the highest users, use of a water engineer for accurate average water user information and a neighborhood meeting concerning water usage. H.C. stated that the newly formed water sub-committee will convene again in the near future.
