State of the System:   The new water main line installation is complete, and the new service lines and meters have been installed. If you have any questions or concerns about the new water distribution system we suggest that you come to the next monthly meeting to discuss it with the Board. A public comment period is the first order of business at each Board meeting after the approval of minutes and reports.

Meter Reading by Residents:   Since the new meters are now installed, we will no longer be able to remove the meter pit lid to read a meter. Removing the meter pit lid will damage the new system. If a resident should damage the new meters by improperly removing the pit lid, the resident will be billed by the District or Southwest Water for the repair to the meter system. If you are interested in purchasing a residential water meter monitor for checking your monthly water usage to avoid excessive usage fees, you can purchase a battery-operated ORION Water Meter Monitor from Badger Meter, the company that manufactured our new meters. The cost is $80.00. Contact Michael Gay at mgay@nmaai.com to order a meter monitor.

Serial Number Transposition Error:   Some serial numbers for the new meters may have been recorded improperly by transposing some of the numbers in the serial number. There is a possibility that some residents have received inaccurate billing statements because of this issue. In some cases the billing statement that has been sent out may have referenced a different meter than the one that is installed at some residences. AMCOBI and SouthWest Water have reported that they have resolved all of these issues. Anyone who feels that there has been a billing error of some kind should contact AMCOBI directly.

Water and Sewer Taps:   The District established a moratorium on the sale of water taps and sewer taps several years ago. The Board is in the process of reversing the moratorium. By the end of the first quarter of 2011 the District plans to once again offer water and sewer taps for sale. Anyone who owns property in the District that does not have a valid sewer tap or water tap and would like to buy one, or anyone who has questions or concerns about the taps should contact the Board at a monthly meeting. The folling excerpts from the district rules & regulations cover new taps:
