SUPERINTENDENT/ GENERAL MANAGERS REPORT:

2. A meeting is planned for Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at the LWL dam on the South Branch of the Gale River to review the project scope with representative of the National Forest (NFS) Service.

3. LWL personnel are working with and assisting several contractors in town with various projects: The town’s sewer infiltration project on Union Street is consuming an immense amount of LWL employee’s time and materials in support of this project. The contractor’s construction practices/excavation technique is cause for some concern.

Following some discussion the BOC decided that a representative from NEB should be invited to a future BOC meeting to brief the BOC in greater detail.
