  1. NPDES review: Brett addressed the Board with updates from the last meeting.  The District’s compliance reports need to be completed by the end of the month for the FSP with QAP (FSP is Field Service Plan). DEQ has responded with some corrections.  The next step is to present an approved study and agree on processes. DEQ working with the limnologist to get answers.
  2. Ayers of Recreational RV addressed the Board and distributed a letter from him dated 12/12/18. The letter is requesting that KPSD revisit the entire capacity issue for his property at 1180 Fontaine Drive.  His winter reads are higher than his summer reads due to his guests letting the water run in their RVs to prevent freezing.  (Once he discovered this, the practice was to stop.) Mr. Ayers would like to have his 12 month reads considered for actual usage. He is to provide Colleen with December 2018 and January 2019 water reads.  Mr. Ayers agreed he could have them to her by 2/12/19.  Board would like 2017-2018 reads calculated by monthly total and yearly total for the next meeting.  There are currently 8 LID capacities assigned to the property; there are 8.24 ER hook-ups purchased for the property.  By using winter reads the property is using 15 ERs.  Board would like a break-down of dollar amount that the District has turned over to the County.
