ADDITIONS TO AGENDA: Less than 48 hours. 

Minutes:  Minutes from May were approved as submitted.
Financial Statements:  Financials were approved as submitted.
Maintenance Report:  Maintenance report was approved as submitted. Board noted that Jon Brown would be leaving the District the end of June.  Board asked for clarification of billing for KPSD equipment. Equipment with a KPSD operator has been billed out on occasion to other contractors in need. Clarification of a Sewer Evaluation Form (SEF) – a SEF is completed and tracked on the server for each property that has a lateral video completed. This allows for “in the field” review and updates.
IT Report:  IT report was approved as submitted. All tasks were completed.

OLD BUSINESS:

  1. NPDES review: Brett updated the Board on the progress of the near shore test results. The first buoy test for monitoring the near shore lake currents was completed and wind records were reported for the testing days. Thus far the study results have been very positive. The phosphorus levels have been very low, below allowance given. We will be looking closely at the first two results gathered in June and will continue through all summer months.  By the end of September or October we should have conclusive results to give to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).  At that time KPSD would be requesting a new assessment of future TMDL (total maximum daily load) work within the Pend Oreille Lake.
  2. Colleen updated the Board on the status of Lawson Tate’s account and property at 310 Sixth Street in Ponderay. Tate has paid his additional hook-up fee and back billing in accordance with the minutes of May 2019.  Mr. Tate is working with the District regarding separating the current shared laterals on his property.  A building permit was received (retroactive) for the “carriage house”.  This is the newest addition to the property and will have living quarters above the shop.  Fees were paid for this addition as well.
