SUPERINTENDENT/ MANAGERS REPORT:

1. La Capra Associates are planning to attend the September 7, 2010 Regular Commissioners meeting to discuss the proposed ISONE Demand Response Program with the BOC.

2. The USDA water system grant for the Oak Hill reservoir was discussed and a letter from the NHDES to the USDA was reviewed. The letter strongly supports the Departments need to replace the reservoir due to water quality and health safety concerns. The application is complete to the best of the Departmentís knowledge; once the USDA makes a decision the Department will plan the appropriate course of action. The next milestone for the Department to hit for planning purposes is to determine what loan amount to present in the 2011 warrant articles for public vote and how much to raise the water rates the year following project completion.

3. The Department achieved 100% passing on the recently completed lead and copper testing. The Department sampled various locations throughout the water distribution system that NHDES selected in this eighth-round of compliance testing.
