F. MANAGER'S REPORT
Mr. Dinges stated that a JPIA sexual harassment informational class would be held on September 28th at the
District office. Mr. Dinges informed the Board that he had met with John Reynolds at Krieger and Stewart
regarding the treatment plant, and that DHS was requiring a membrane filter/water type comparison study.
Mr. Dinges further stated that if a new filter system is not installed, the District would still have to comply with
DHS requirements to filter all backwash water to a waste basin after the backwashing process, to build a
settling tank and a secondary tank, to increase surface water monitoring above the filter, and to replace the
intermediate clarifier with an up-flow unit. Mr. Dinges stated that 2011 DHS requirements would be 4-log
removal credits and that the two proposed filtration systems have a log removal of 3.5 (Pall micro-filtration
unit) and 4 (Koch alter-filtration unit) and summarized the bidding schedule. Mr. Dinges clarified that the cost
of the comparison study would be the responsibility of the filter system manufactures.
D. GENERAL BUSINESS
Review of Draft Emergency Response Plan: Mr. Dinges stated that the current format of the plan was
according to section 402 of the California State Drinking Water Law Act requirements and asked that the
Board submit input regarding the overall plan and site instructions. The Board suggested that the plan be
further edited to include format changes, reorganization, content revisions, and grammar corrections. Mr.
Dinges advised that the plan would be coordinated with the Fire Department Plan.
Review of E & M, Inc. Telemetry Service Contract Proposal for $50, 560.00: Mr. Dinges summarized the
Manager's Report stating that a decision should be made regarding responsibility for the panel and
recommending that the owners retain responsibility. Director Sapanai expressed concerns regarding cost
implications, unanswered questions, contract parameters, the lack of established system data, licensing and
proprietary issues. Director Sapanai suggested that more time was needed to closely review this issue.
Director Tye stated that the District was already paying for E & M to create a functional specification, a service
that was included in the proposed contract, and did not want to have effort duplicated. Mr. Dinges stated that
only the more complex systems would need monitoring and that a Grant may be available from Regional to
finalize the project. The Board directed the General Manager to pursue possible funding from Regional and to
continue the item until the August Workshop Meeting.
E. COMMITTEE REPORTS
Director Tye, of the Emergency Operation Committee, asked the Board for approval to attend an OES
Disaster meeting. The Board advised all members to utilize common sense to determine whether or not to
attend outside meetings, to, whenever possible, retrieve information from published minutes and documents,
and to limit outside meeting attendance to only those meetings that directly relate to District business.
The Board reviewed the 2005 Board of Directors Committee List and revised the list.
