SEWUD - East
SE H2o is very near the completion of the ATS Project! There are still a few people who do not have their water hooked up, but are in the process of having that done as this is written. Also this past year, there were a large amount of improvements done to Reservoirs B, G, H, I, J, & K. Some reservoirs were expanded to hold more water in underground storage units; some were upgraded both inside and out. The updates of those sites have been completed; and you can be assured that your rural water system is running efficiently.
The field operators are very busy doing fall locates and last minute new hook ups.
SEWUD - Central
This part of the rural water system is the newest, so most of the work this year was geared toward the east and west. We did, however, make some improvements in our existing radio equipment. Upgrades were done according to the rules & regulations of the FCC.
The field operator is busy with fall locates and some lowering of water lines due to new drainage being done.
SEWUD - West
Completion of the updates to the Water Treatment Plant and Reservoirs A & C were accomplished this year. We are looking forward to next year in updating the computer scada system at Reservoirs B & D.
The field operator is busy doing pasture tap readings, fall locates and last minutes water hook ups besides the daily maintenance of running the system.
