John Wurm - LACSD update

John Wurm - Lake Arrowhead Community Services District

John Wurm was here to talk about what’s up at the water district.
 
John discussed the newly completed North Bay water intake. It was a pretty expensive project, but was necessary because to old facility was so outdated the maintenance was very high – and he believed we will save lots of costs in the longer run. The project came in under budget, and the District was able to work out differences with both the Community Board and the Hamiltair Board of Directors.
 
John informed us that we own 350 acres in Hesperia, the plan is to eventually build a solar electricity farm to help pay the system’s electricity costs. Still arm-wrestling with the various regulators, probably a while before that project gets off the ground.
 
They are studying a project that will treat water, put it back into the aquifer then pump it out and re-introduce it to the lake. The project is probably 10 years out, but could equal quite a water saving!
 
The district has restructured the pension program for employees; the employees are now responsible for paying their share. Evidently they weren’t in the past.     Thanks for the update!
