Manager Neugebauer reported to the Board on the following
1 The Board of Water and Natural Resources approved our application for funding in the form of $2,915,450 / 2.125% 30 year loan and $7,091,550 ARPA Grant.  
2 I have been in contact with DANR and our engineer to get the loan/grant documents started.
3 We need to finalize tank site selection and landowner agreements.  Dan plans to be out next week to look at the routing and narrow down the two tank sites to the most ideal.
4 We don’t have to have a parity agreement with RD and the State being the SD Legislature passed SB203 exempting Water Users Districts from the process.
5 We have had more low pressure/ flow calls than I can ever remember. Mostly are due to small diameter long distance pipelines after the meter pits.  
6 We found the leak east of Oral and got repaired.
7 The City of Hot Springs was doing work last week and slowed the water rate down to a point we started losing tank levels. We are still trying to catch back up.
8 Water Usage for the month.
9 Miles/Gallons for the month.
