♦ Allenspark Water & Sanitation District
Mike Cousineau and Barry Mauerman researched options.
Surge tank decided to be the best solution for future issues with hydrants.
AFPD portion of the cost = $5,000.
Chief recommendation is to purchase the over-pressure valve device discussed last month for $1,200 because it can be used at any hydrant.
Johnathon Oppermann will research the maximum pressure for all AP Water hydrants.
The AFPD Board needs the Allenspark Water Board to provide written assurance that these solutions will mitigate problems associated with all hydrants, 95% of the time.
President and Secretary will draft a letter to AP Water.
The 2010 agreement needs to be reviewed, modified or deleted in January 2020.
