Water System - The specified filters for the water system are being changed daily at an 80,000 gallon per day water consumption - what will happen during July when there is a 500,000 gallon per day water consumption?
The 2006 budget for filters will have to be increased from $35,000.00 to $50,000.00 to cover estimated cost of filters.
The installation of a Multi Media Filter would cut the usage of filters by at least
50% if installed.
