The contractor has two <br /> crews working and the project should be completed in short order. <br /> (3) Test pumping of the Evergreen Mill wells began Tuesday and <br /> will be continued for a 72-hour consecutive period This includes the <br /> close monitoring of' wells in- the area, such as the Middle School, the <br /> Stowers property, two on Mr. John Wright' s property and our own wells. <br /> This will allow very careful calculation of the effective yield of <br /> these.. wells for design purposes. It is expected that these will <br /> prove to be very high producing. wells. <br /> (4) The large storm drainage pipe authorized around Firemen' s <br /> Well has been delivered andpublic works. crews are installing it. <br /> This is about an, $8,000 projectin materials cost and is being done <br /> ' to avoid any possibility of surface water contamination into this <br /> well . This. is one of our.most dependable producing wells. <br /> (5) Paving work on Edwards Ferry, Road is nearly complete - <br /> some 1200 tons of asphaltic mix have been put down to date. The east <br /> end of North Street and Plaza Drive are complete. All of these projects <br /> are running underthe estimated tonnage and' are, therefore, under the <br /> budgeted amount of $120, 000. At the Mayor' s request, the proposed <br /> shoulder widening on Morven Park Road has been studied. There are two <br /> segments of, this project and both can be accomplished for about $1, 200 <br /> and within the budgeted amount, so they will be underway shortly. <br /> (6) The Betz-Converse-Murdoch report on the Potomac River project <br /> will be received Friday. This- is their design review and recommenda- <br /> tions for revision in the plan to bring it into conformance with the <br /> requirements of OSHA, the Safe Drinking Water Act and technical re- <br /> quirements of the State Health Department. ' The next phase will be <br /> for Council to review this report, adopt it if they are in accord <br /> with it and authorize preparation of construction documents. These <br /> can be completed within 100 days, according to the engineers. <br /> (7) Mr. Taylor has advised that the tax bills will be mailed <br /> tomorrow. <br /> (8) With regard to the cash report - the Gene$RgrpwA <br /> utlwiaaoevel <br /> to $73, 000 - this is probably the low point for this year. There will <br /> be tax payments made during the next several weeks, but this indicates <br /> that we need the beginning balances proposed in the Budget. <br /> Mayor' s- Report : <br /> Mayor Rollins requested that all Councilmembers be furnished a <br /> copy of the proposed newsletter about a month before it goes out in <br /> order that they might put in anything they desire and in 'order that <br /> they might edit it before it is published. <br />
