a. Mark advised that we met our disinfectant bi-products inspection for July. Mark shared some quotes for carbon (vacuum out and dispose of existing carbon in retention ponds.) Chairman Norwood asked if this needs to be done now? BBWA Engineer Mike Murphy advised we could get two now. There was a brief discussion regarding the GAC media replacement. It was decided to gather more data regarding this and present it at next board meeting.
