A couple of important items:

 

March Council Meeting

The March 9th Council Meeting was cancelled and will be held on March 23rd at 6:00, the second regularly scheduled meeting of the month.

Lake Drawdown

Due to the unseasonable mild end to Winter Indian Lake Borough Council has decided to bring the lake water level up to approximately 4 feet below normal pool. We have been at 8 to 12 feet below pool which was identified in the September 2021 listing of our E-news. To facilitate the increase, we closed the valve on Wednesday 3-9-2022. The valve will be manipulated once the water reaches the desired level and we will strive to keep this level until the valve is closed 4-4-2022. Allowing the level to stay approximately 4 feet below normal pool level will allow work on seawalls and docks to continue.
Our permit does require the valve to be closed “no later than April 4, 2022”. The permit does allow us to start refiling the lake sooner than the April 4th date. Therefore, we feel it our best interest to start raising the water level.
Questions please email- scott@indianlakepa.us
Water Treatment Plant

The Water Committee is pleased to report that construction on the New Water Treatment Plant system is progressing according to schedule and is now approximately 80% Complete.
 
Construction that will affect some residents involve re-piping the 2 supply wells (#99 at the base of the Dam and #18B at Wenatchee Park), re-valving the Peninsula tank, and installing a new storage tank. These upgrades will cause some residents to lose water service for part of the day.   We will be posting E-News updates on outages as they are scheduled.
  
Commissioning of the new treatment system is to commence April 11,2022 and after cleaning, disinfection, and testing, we should be able to fully treat water starting in May 2022.
 
Questions can be directed to the Water Committee Chair at paul@indianlakepa.us

This is a Public Notification of a TIER 3 Violation notice for the failure of Nitrite/Nitrate sampling. The lab sample that was sent did not get analyzed in the time frame required. The lab did not notify the water authority of this issue and therefore a Violation notice is issued. Once this was discovered, a new sample has been taken and analyzed. The Water authority is currently waiting for the lab results to publish.
