inventory. Planned projects include the fire hydrant installation on Calle Del Arroyo and the Seadrift mainline
project. The FEMA money is in for flood-related projects. The District needs to do a temporary bypass on the
Highlands catchment; due to a slide, there is currently no access to that site. The Wastewater department and
office operations are running well; staff is currently working on draft budget for 2007-2008 and CCRs. Some new
requirements from DHS are pending (arsenic & radiology). Field staff has earned several new certifications over

certifications; they are currently testing over two hundred devices annually. The County is planning to repave
Calle Del Arroyo in August.
