SYSTEM PRESSURE ADVISORIES

System Pressure Advisory has been lifted for Pondside Mobile Home Park. There are no other system pressure (boil water) advisories with in the system.

As a precaution, we took many samples from one of the system to the other. No problems reported.

We would ask that you not waste any water, but we are now at the point where we feel comfortable with letting everyone know that you can use water to help with cleanup, such as power washing. We did not need the heavy rain that we received the other day, but it should have assisted in helping to wash away some of the yard debris on homes and cars.

If you do have a pressure washer available, they usually use less water then a hose and sprayer while accomplishing more in a gi...ven period. Please be mindful of the length of time and understand that any usage on your meter during clean up is not subject to an adjustment.

As we approach the weekend and homeowners begin coming to the county to see their properties for the first time, we expect that additional water leaks will surface on the customer side. Please continue to report leaks. We will have someone on call the entire weekend.

Be safe and know that we appreciate your conservation efforts.

Plastic, plastic, everywhere

Plastic, plastic, everywhere

September 01, 2018

The production of plastic has grown 8 percent a year for decades, much more than any other manufactured material, because plastic is just so useful. We use it for packaging (43%) and construction (20%); we have plastic in our clothes, our cars, our computers.

Plastic really is everywhere.

“Roland Geyer, an industrial ecologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, says no one had tallied how much plastic people have manufactured since its invention. When he did it, he was shocked at what he found. 'Eight point three billion metric tons of plastics produced so far. That's just really a staggering amount.' He did some calculations to understand that number. 'And it turned out that it can cover an area the size of Argentina,' he says, 'which is the eighth-largest country in the world.'
