Report of the Water Commissioners
Of The North Raynham Water District
May 28, 2010
To the Citizens of the North Raynham Water District
The Commissioners of the North Raynham Water District respectfully submit the following report of the operation and financial statement.
Three new services were installed giving the District 1,382 active services.
This year the District pumped a total of 114,978,000 gallons of water, a decrease of 22,381,000 gallons from the 137,359,000 gallons pumped last year. This was a direct cause of tight restrictions during the filtration plant construction and an unusually wet summer.
The Treasurer’s report shows the District to be in sound financial condition. This was confirmed by the independent Auditor’s Report Parent, McLaughlin and Nangle for the F/Y 2009.
The System Development and the District’s Money Market Accounts, Certificates of Deposits and Capital Savings Accounts have yielded a total of $42,596.00 in interest in F/Y 2009as of 06/30/2009.
The Demand Fees for new water installations generated $3,585.00 in revenue for the F/Y 2009 as of 06/30/09.
The System Development fees for new water installation generated $19,093.00 in revenue for F/Y 2009 as of 06/30/09.
Arrowhead Lane Water Filtration Plant (Formally King Philip Filtration Plant)
Construction of the new filtration plant is complete. The project was on time and under budget. Testing and start up of the facility went better than anticipated. The filtration plant has been on-line since June of 2009 and during that six-month period, has produced 45,655,000 gallons of high quality water that are void of the minerals iron and manganese. The name of the facility was change because it was located on Arrowhead lane and it will not be confusing for the police or fire department when responding to any emergencies. The district already has another facility located on King Philip Street.
District Annual Water Quality Reports
The annual water quality reports will be mailed to each resident by the required DEP July 1st deadline.
The District has replaced forty-two meters between July 2009 and March 2010.This increases the accuracy of the water readings, which in turn generates more revenue for the district and helps to reduce the districts unaccounted for water.
The district is pleased to announce that we now have a website for the North Raynham Water District www.nrwd.org. Information regarding rates, water conservation and other important town links can be found. The district has on line payments available just click on: Online Payment on our website.
Major Water Main Break on July 9, 2009
The District experienced a major water main break at the intersection of Carver and Broadway. Extensive damage occurred costing the District in excess of $40,000 dollars to repair the distribution system and road structure. The District was able to cover the costs within the fiscal budget without causing any adverse problems.
In closing, the Commissioners want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for making this District a success.
