July 2017



To all our Owners/Customers,


You all received a very condensed news letter last month as I was on a much needed vacation. Seattle was nice, but so is getting home. The weather here still remains warm with the monsoons making their arrival to Northern Arizona. We still are in stage one fire restrictions, so we must all remain vigilant in our efforts to remain fire wise. The Pinewood Fire Department is your best resource for burn permits and information regarding burning in general in this area.


The Pinewood Sanitary District does have some firewood available. You will need to stop in our office to get the O.K. to get wood. We will only be allowing this activity on Mondays from 8:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M. No chainsaws or splitters are allowed in our yard and we will not load your vehicles for you. We will also consider firewood for charitable organizations, but again, those organizations must check with our office first.


We are preparing to get back to construction on the West side of I-17. We had to have a portion of the project redesigned due to significant ground water issues, as well as acquiring the necessary easements across the properties to the South end of the project.


We have received our approvals from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) for the construction of the new lift station in North Lodge so that we can remove our existing station from the drainage way. We are currently in the processes of obtaining a conditional use permit from Coconino County so that we can start construction.


We attended the PPOA meeting at the Pinewood Country Club on July 15, 2017. There was a small, but attentive group in attendance. It was an informative meeting and it is always good to see people interested in what’s going on in Munds Park.


We will be having some manhole rehabilitation taking place later this summer. This work is necessary in order to help maintain the integrity of our system and curtail some of the ground water from entering our system. We will keep you posted.


Our crews remain busy with system repairs, new connections, real estate televising and plant maintenance.


As you may have noticed, you sewer bill, again, reflects no rate increase for this year. This is our fifth year in a row without any increase.


We hope you all have a wonderful time in Munds Park and enjoy all of the amenities available to you.


Play Safe.


Your Sanitary District,


James T. Wilson                    

District Manager
