October 2018


To all our Owners/Customers,


Fall has arrived in Munds Park.  We have had some early snow and a great deal of rain.  The trees are in their autumn colors and are beginning to lose their leaves.  Temperatures have been on the cool side for this time of year but still remain tolerable.  The elk are making their presence known with increased sightings on the Golf Course and the District.  We have been hearing early morning calls of the bulls as they amass their herd for mating. 


The District has changed the company handling our credit card transactions.  A flier is included in this mailing.  To access this convenience you must go to our website at www.pinewoodsanitary.com.  Once there, click on the area called links, click on the E-payment service and follow the directions for making a payment.  We hope you find this site fast and convenient for your needs.


We received our Discharge Authorization for our new lift station in the North Lodge subdivision from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ).  With this authorization the District met the conditions of our Consent Order with ADEQ, which allowed ADEQ to terminate that Consent Order.  We are waiting for our landscape company to complete the landscaping at this lift station to satisfy our Conditional Use Permit requirements with Coconino County.  ADOT has been working on drainage in their Right of Way adjacent to the North Lodge lift station in an effort to help with drainage from the North Lodge subdivision into that Right of Way.


We continue to work on the West Side of I-17 sewer project.  Boring for the lateral connections for the RV Park should be completed soon.  Our crews have remained busy with customer main line repairs and installing tap connections for new homes.  Please remember to call for Blue Stake before doing any digging on your property.  If you are winterizing your residence yourself please use RV antifreeze and NOT automotive antifreeze for this purpose.  It is a violation of our Sewer Use Ordinance to use automotive antifreeze in your toilets, sinks, bathtubs, etc.  There are many plumbing companies available for winterizing services if you prefer that option.


We continue to prepare our plant for winter.  As our flows normally are at a reduced level we utilize less of our treatment capacity.  Heavy rains and snow melt can change low flows into high flows very rapidly.  We at the treatment plant remain vigilant in preparing for and dealing with these scenarios in order to maintain compliance with our State and Federal discharge requirements.


Donít forget to vote on Election Day.


We hope you all enjoyed your summer in Munds Park.  Be safe and happy and we will see you whenever you return to our gorgeous community.


Your Sanitary District,
