VII.       Citizens’ Input:  Customer/concerned citizen Broward Reed stated he would like to

 

            see BBWA inquire about the possibility of getting a grant for sewer installation for

 

an RV park neighborhood in the area of First Ave NE, and Fourteenth St NE (located in     the area back behind the Water Plant).  Due to the recent flooding, all of the standing

 

water cannot be good for the water system.  Mr. Reed said this is the area where the county is pumping the water, and it is very slow in moving the water down. The septic tanks have been flooded, and this could cause issues for those living in that area and compromise the quality of the BBWA water system (about 200 yards from the BBWA Water Plant distribution system.  General Manager Mark Reblin said he would go by and take a look at the area.  There was a brief discussion about reviewing any state mandated ordinances about water/septic-sewer issues, and the possibility any sewer grant available.
