Water System 2 Planned Outage SATURDAY! *** RESCHEDULED ***

Our key player with the NMRWA (New Mexico Rural Water Association) has asked us to reschedule. With moisture and colder weather predicted to come in next week, the SLPPOA President Paul Lisko & I agree to try for SATURDAY.

The urgency of this repair is strong due to the circumstances (the condition of the PRV and a recently discovered leak). Please stay tuned.

SLPPOA Water System 2 Planned Outage TOMORROW!

ALL of SLPPOA's Water System 2 will be affected as the 4 in PRV (Pressure Regulator Valve) will be replaced TOMORROW, 4/10/2020. System 1 will not be affected by this outage.

We will begin draining the System 2 at 8 am by isolating the storage tanks. You (Redondo Vista, lower Los Griegos, Cerro Pelado, Aspen, Outliers, Lauer Lane, & Calypso members) can help drain by drawing water after isolation at 8am. We must drain all water from storage tanks to the booster/PRV area to allow access to the underground PRV area.

A message from Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham

Sorry to those who already have this, but I suspect a lot of you have not made it onto the state's email list.


My Fellow New Mexicans:

Today I announced further actions to encourage you to stay home, which is what our state really needs from you so we can remain a step or two ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new public health order taking effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday, March 24, closes all non-essential businesses. Our goal is to give you little reason to go out where you could inadvertently spread or become infected with the virus.

Special Meeting for April 18

Saturday April-18 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Dear Member:
Given recent recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control, the NM Department of Health
and other related agencies, conducting any sort of public meeting with more than ten persons in
physical attendance is being strongly discouraged. To this end, the special meeting for the
Association scheduled for Saturday, April 18, which was called to review, discuss and vote upon
proposed bylaw amendments, may have to be suspended from that sort of venue.

Ballots for Bylaws Amendments

Dear Member:

Timely message about cinders

Per Dave Stuedell:
Cinders are available for the roadside cinder containers at the SLP Fire station.

From me: The cinders are on the north end of the lot, on SLP property. If you leave a vehicle on the lot, please keep it in the same area so you don't block egress of fire trucks.The east side and the northeast corner are tight for us.

Water System ONE is Operational Again

SLPPOA System 1 Water Users (Units 1, 2, 3, & 10) ...

Jemez Mt. Electric Cooperative (JMEC) has completed the repair of an underground high voltage power line on Scout's Lane. They did not hit any of SLPPOA's water lines.

Water supply was turned off at about 9:30 am and back on at about noon today.

Thanks again for your cooperation and understanding.

Possible Water System ONE Outage Tomorrow, Thursday, 1/9/2020

System 1 Water Users (Units 1, 2, 3, & 10) ...

Jemez Mt. Electric Cooperative will be excavating an underground power line problem in the vicinity of Scout's Lane probably starting about 9 am, tomorrow, Thursday, 1/9/2020.

JMEC has requested SLPPOA shut off the water supply for this excavation due to the close proximity of each utility. This seems to be logical and a common safety practice we have provided in the past and will in the future as deemed necessary.

I will send another message as soon as we are back to "normal" operation for System 1.
