All of our staff here at Blue Lake Springs Mutual Water Co. wishes all of you…Happy Holidays.
Our well levels are holding strong at 154 feet above the pump intake for well #3, and 767 feet above the pump intake for well #4. We are keeping our well engineers, Luhdorff and Scalmanini, on to monitor the wells performance. This data will be used to predict possible problems with the wells pump and motor, or the fractured rock environment that surrounds our wells. The flow of water over time in this fractured rock environment is not totally understood, and the more data we can get, the better we can manage our water supply.
Usage for November was slightly higher this year than last, about 10%.
Here are the numbers.
November Usage by year:
- 2013 3,822,000 gallons
- 2014 2,946,000
- 2015 2,710,000
- 2016 2,842,000
- 2017 3,158,000
The increase this year is not alarming.
Usage has gone up and down slightly since our high drought year of 2013, hovering around 3 million gallons. Overall usage for 2017 is very close to 2016.
I know we say it all the time….but please winterize your cabin if you are going away for any length of time.
That’s all for now….
