  1. Review of Commercial Water Bottling Issue: Mr. Dinges presented a slide show regarding the manufacture of water bottling. Director Tye discussed the possibility of water retail and special markets such as the State OES and CDF during emergencies and for promotional events. Director Veit spoke about limiting bottling costs and questioned whether the bottling could be done at another location at a lower cost without purchasing equipment. Director Veit also spoke about trade marks and a bottle logo. Director Zell suggested that the District investigate the possibility of using a local bottler to bottle the District's water. Director Sapanai suggested we come up with a business plan and overall cost to produce bottled water during the winter months, she also suggested we form a committee to bring back information to the Board for further review before committing to a purchase. Director Viet and Director Tye volunteered to serve on the bottling committee. Mr. Richard Reasoner, of 280 Belvedere, suggested that the District bottle water for test marketing purposes cost evaluation at another source and re-label with the District's label.
  2. Review of Sub-metering Systems: Mr. Richard Reasoner, of 280 Belvedere and Dendron Landscaping, gave a presentation regarding sub-metering and its advantages. The Board discussed the District's policy regarding conservation and some of the liability problems the District could have with recommending types of irrigation products. The Board discussed the fact that sub-meters were generally used in commercial applications although some larger districts are requiring separate meters for irrigation. Water conservation tactics for the Village Green and enforcement was discussed as well as how much water should be utilized at the Village Green. Director Tye suggested that Mr. Reasoner put together a Water Budget for both the new community park (Village Green II) and Village Green I. It was discussed that the District should establish a resolution demanding that the Village Green be responsible for putting together a water budget limiting the amount of water used. The Board asked Mr. Reasoner to resubmit the irrigation design standards with suggested changes and directed staff to remove the hose bib handles at Village Green II
  3. Review of GGNRA Restroom/Septic System: The Board discussed information pertaining to the GGNRA park restroom locations and the type of wastewater facilities being used.
