$1.4 MILLION RESERVOIR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PROJECT COMPLETE

Reservoir Mgt System 2019

The District has completed the construction of a Reservoir Management System ("RMS") which monitors the chlorine residual level in several District reservoirs.  The system adds chemicals from time to time as necessary to maintain the appropriate and desired chemical levels to ensure the highest quality water.  The $1.4 million project was funded through SMWD capital reserves and a Community Facilities District ("CFD") bond.

In recent years, due to the reduced water demands in the area, the Estado Reservoir located in Coto de Caza, and two additional reservoirs, Villa and Vista, which are influenced by Estado have experienced low total chlorine residuals.  The Talega Zone 1 Reservoir has also been experiencing low chlorine residuals.

SMWD has as one of its core objectives, to maintain and/or surpass compliance with water quality requirements which include a total chlorine residual of 0.5 milligram/liter ("mg/L") throughout its domestic water system.  The RMS is an important step in ensuring water quality compliance.

 SMWD is committed to the on-going monitoring of the quality of its water and to taking the steps necessary at all times to ensure that quality for its customers.
