COMMUNITY INFORMATION MEETING ORM TIMBER HARVEST 20180205

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2018
BAY CLUB AUDITORIUM – 3:30 PM

Olympic Resource Management (ORM), has advised that they are going to commence timber harvesting operations in mid-February on the 91-acre tract of land called ‘Miller Time’ (see map below). It is located between Paradise Bay Road and the previous PLA harvest near the Woodridge Village in South Bay. Harvested trees will be removed from the site south on Teal Lake Road and the parcel will be replanted for future harvest. This harvest has been approved by the Department of Natural Resources.

ORM will be holding a public meeting on Thursday, February 8 from 3:30 to 5 pm, in the Bay Club Auditorium to discuss their specific plans and impacts the harvesting will have on area residents.

OWSI CUSTOMER NOTICE UPDATE 20180118

OWSI CUSTOMER NOTICE UPDATE 2018_01_18

CUSTOMER NOTICE UPDATE JANUARY 18, 2018
WATER SAMPLES SHOW NO COLIFORM

Dear Water Customer:
Last week we informed you of our plan to do a light chlorination of certain parts of our water service area to cure a recent occurrence of total coliform bacteria. As a reminder, the tests detected total coliform, which exists in the environment, but were negative for disease causing bacteria such as E-coli.

Following a week of chlorination, follow up samples show the chlorine was effective; there is no coliform present. We have discontinued chlorination and the operations crew is flushing the remaining residual chlorine from the lines. Once the chlorine is eliminated we will again, sometime next week, submit samples to the lab. We will inform you of the sample results only if they again show the presence of total coliform. Otherwise, you may consider that the tests show that the water is back to normal.

My contact information is below if you have questions or if we can provide more information. You may also email owsi@portludlowassociates.com and I can respond from there. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this process.

PUDS ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT 20171130 EMAIL CAMPAIGN

PUDS ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT 20171130 EMAIL CAMPAIGN

PUD’S ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECT

The Utilities Committee will recommend that that the PLVC support implementation of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Project which includes smart meters and will present its recommendation to the Board on December 7, 3pm, at the Bay Club.

The Committee has met with PUD management and reviewed implementing the project in our Community, as well as throughout the PUD service area.

The advantages of these new smart meters include more accurate meter readings, ability to receive instant notifications of service interruptions, cost savings related to outside vendors currently doing meter readings, inefficient use of PUD manpower to replace or repair the hodgepodge of current meters, and manpower costs to handle moves or non-payment disconnects. Once fully implemented, savings in the $1-1.5 million dollars a year range are anticipated

Objections to this conversion have focused on radio frequency (RF) emissions and privacy. Currently, most of our meters already generate RF signals and the new ones will actually reduce those emissions. Customer data and privacy will be maintained in exactly the same way it is today by the PUD.

We invite all members of the Community to attend the PLVC meeting on December 7 to hear the discussion on this subject.
