Asset Management Plan Review- BBWA Engineer Mike Murphy discussed a plan through DEP the water/sewer system is studied and you find out how much remaining life is left, you find out when to expect to fix. You would find out how much BBWA should be charging to reach this level. DEP requires you to adopt this plan if you get their grant.
Water/Waste Water Update: We just completed having the water tower drained, run on pump pressure and everything went well. We have to do this every five years. Chlorine usage has been cut in half. BBWA Engineer Mike Murphy has received the permit for the force main extension, Mark stated we can move forward start getting prices on materials etc.
