For more information,…

President’s Report July 2021

Shareholders: The BLSMWC Board held its first hybrid Board meeting with Board members and employees meeting in person and via Zoom. It was great to finally meet in person afer 14 months of Zoom meetings. As you know, Dave Hicks, our General Manager for many years and 34‐year employee of the BLSMWC, retired in June.…

President’s Report June 2021

The Blue Lake Springs Mutual Water Company’s Annual Meeting was held via ZOOM on June 5th. The hope is that future Annual Meetings will be held in person.

President’s Report May 2021

Going over a past number of Bubbler publications, I have mentioned rather repeatedly the need for CONSERVATION. While you might be tired of reading references to the need to CONSERVE, that need is critically before us. Not because I like talking about it but due to the lack of water from the last two winter’s…

President’s Report April 2021

Since the inception of the Bubbler (by the way … do you know what a Bubbler is or was? You can find the answer at the end of my report!) I have mentioned the word CONSERVATION or CONSERVE several times, in fact perhaps too many times. CONSERVE comes from the Latin language, which I studied…

President’s Report March 2021

President’s Report February 2021

Now THAT was a snowstorm. I hope everyone got through it ok.

I have a couple of words for the month: #1 WINTERIZING Winterizing is a fancy word for…

President’s Report January 2021

First and foremost: Happy New Year!! 2021 will be a better year, if we give it a chance. If you are wondering where are Mozingo’s heavy trucks and construction equipment, they left in late December. The 12.2M dollar system improvement project is complete and, in a few days the remaining paperwork will be signed with…

President’s Report December 2020

Over the past few months, I have indicated that the Project is coming to a close. Now all is finally complete. Mozingo has packed up their equipment and moved onto another job site. As the Project’s Contractor, they did an incredible job, and the Water Company is very pleased with their performance and delivery of…

President’s Report October 2020

Included in the past few Bubblers, I have alluded to the impending conclusion of the infrastructure project. That moment is now before us. Final touches and “punch-list” work are starting to be addressed which are signs that the project is truly coming to a close. There a lot of folks to thank: Dave Hicks, the…
