SUBJECT:      WWTP Issue

We experienced an influx of water at the Wastewater Treatment Plant due to excessive rains. This influx of water forced us to bypass partial treatment areas at the plant. The UV Control System at the end of the treatment areas is in need of repair. A temporary chlorine tank and feed has been set up at the final stage of treatment for disinfection. This chlorine tank is necessary for the interim until the UV Control System can be repaired and put back on-line. New controls and repair parts have been ordered and will be installed as soon as possible. When the UV Control System is running properly, the chlorine tank and feed will be removed.
