Shareholder 2015 Bill due on Feb. 15th 2015


Winterize Your Home Now

With the cold nights rolling in, winter is just right around the corner. We recommend anyone who does not live in their residence “full time”, and those that leave for extended periods of time for vacations, etc. should winterize as a precaution by turning off their water. It only takes a few minutes and if a leak/break occurs, the only amount of water that can potentially leak out will be what is actually in the lines at the time.

Turning Your Water Off

Even though you (or a service provider) properly shut down and drained your cabin, it is virtually impossible to evacuate all of the water from the system. There will always be an amount of water still in the pipes. When we experience freezing conditions, the remaining water in the system can still freeze and result in broken pipes. If you or someone else has not been to your cabin recently, please take caution.

Remember: Do not turn on the water and leave the cabin without looking and listening for breaks!


Water Production Goal

Our goal is to create a redundant system and to do that we have set a water production goal of 316 gallons per minute (gpm).

Water Production Goal


Per the Water Master Plan the Board had decided to set the goal for 316gpm. However, the progress percentage does not truly reflect wells that are currently online. The 40% represents new wells that are in development and expected to be added to our system by 2015. The goal may also be adjusted accordingly as we continue our search for water.

For more information regarding well exploration and detailed reports please review our past meeting minutes and published reports. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter ‘The Bubbler‘.
