Maintenance report: Dry but mowing, spraying sidewalk weeds, tree dump burned completely and buried. Water inspection is completed with good results. Replacing smaller watermains with six inch pipe as we go would also help with fire protection by providing more water volume. Valve exercising will be the last Monday and Tuesday of July. Cost is $500 per day. Water usage is high with no rain and many lawn sprinkling systems running. Average is close to 450,000 gallons per day.
