New Upgrade for our Water System…A new monitoring system. “ The reservoir monitoring system is composed of two components: a pressure transducer and a Remote Monitoring Station Data Logger (Onset HOBO RX3000). The pressure transducer send a 4-20 mA signal to the monitoring station based on the depth of the water level in the reservoir. The monitoring station receives the signal from the pressure transducer, translates the signal to the corresponding reservoir depth, stores the information, and sends the stored data to the to the HOBOlink cloud server to be viewed remotely online. When the reservoir depth is at 30ft (1/2 full), 20ft (1/4 full), or 0ft (empty) email and phone message notifications will be sent to Sunwood Lakes and to Northwest Water management personnel. “
Reason for our change of Water Service Companies from Washington Water to Northwest Water.
Washington Water Service is the company that had been managing the SWL community water system for many years through a Management Agreement with SWL HOA.
On December 2nd the SWL HOA Board received a letter from Washington Water Service informing us that the company had decided to focus on water systems that it owns. Therefore, they were providing notice of intent to terminate their water service agreement with SWL effective February 28, 2018. The company also indicated it would be open to discussing a potential sale of the SWL water system to Washington Water Service if SWL wished to consider that option. WA Water Services certified letter 12-2-17.
Immediately the Board began the process of identifying other companies that have the expertise and willingness to manage the SWL water system. Three companies have made visits to evaluate the water system (wells, pumps, storage towers, etc.) and to discuss the services that SWL would want to include in a water services agreement.
Washington Water Service has supported the SWL Board in identifying potential companies and in providing information needed for a smooth transition to a new water system management company.
The Board is not exploring the option of selling the SWL water system at this time. Article V, section 1(e) of the SWL HOA Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCRs) requires 2/3rds of SWL entire voting members have to agree in order to transfer any part of the common areas to a new party.
