While participation of members and qualified persons is always encouraged at any meeting, IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT at the Annual Meeting where a quorum of members (approx. 40) is needed in order for elections to be held on that date. Other important business also calls for a quorum.
Attending that meeting either in-person or virtually would help us eliminate having to send a lot of materials, and ballots, via mail, and would also make the meeting more productive for everyone.
To RSVP for either meeting, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instead of our typical “3rd Saturday” meeting, the May meeting will be held on Wednesday night, May 18th, starting at 5:30 p.m.
This special call meeting will be shorter (typically an hour or less) than our quarterly board meetings, and held via Zoom only, but please fire up your computer or phone.
We’d love to have you participate!
Our hope is that a weekday night meeting will give folks that cannot attend on a Saturday a chance to join in and learn about what’s happening with local water production, restoration efforts, and more.
RSVP by emailing us at email@example.com.
Since pressure or power washing can put a signifcant load on the system depending on time of day, it is not allowed w/o specific permission. Please fill out the form on our Contact Us page and someone will contact you.
Rain events affect the processing of water. When the turbidity-levels get too high in the creek we have to switch over to well water and that lessens the amount of water that can be produced.
It’s likely, based on drought predictions for CA, that more restrictive rules and guidelines will need to be put in place.
We will make that determination at the June meeting, and encourage your attendance at that meeting, as well as all meetings.
