ELDORADO AREA WATER & SANITATION DISTRICT
2 North Chamisa Drive, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87508-9483
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS
May 1, 2023: Summer Watering Restrictions begin May 1, 2023 as part of the Water Restrictions & Alert Management Plan (WRAMP). This will be implemented yearly from May 1 through August 31, coinciding with the Water Conservation Surcharge. The Summer Watering Restrictions will help to ensure that wells can sustain the water supply required to meet customer demand, and water levels in the tanks can be maintained to the necessary levels. However, the General Manager or Board may initiate a Stage Alert at any time due to other factors. The April issue of Water Notes explains in more detail as does the website if you scroll to view 'District Updates.' Thank you.
UTILITY MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
Management of the complex infrastructure for the District requires a plan for routine utility maintenance. EAWSD developed a District Asset Management Plan in 2016, which describes the District’s maintenance programs. Some elements of the District’s current preventative maintenance program include:
Depending on available funds, one or two well casings are cleaned each year.
Well master meters are calibrated annually.
Well motor control cabinets are inspected and examined by infrared for poor joints, weak fuses, bad insulation, etc.
Booster pumps are lubricated twice a year.
Pressure Reducing Stations
Pressure reducing stations are rebuilt every 4 years.
Disinfection agent feeding equipment is rebuilt twice a year.
Tanks are inspected annually.
