Bond Election November 2, 2021

The Board of Directors of the East Plantation Utility District has called a Bond Election for November 2, 2021. The proposed bond amount of $4,000,000 will be used to repair and improve the District’s aging infrastructure for water plants, sewer lines, and drainage systems over the useful life of the facilities. The Board anticipates that the bonds issued for the necessary repairs and improvements will be structured to avoid an increase to the District’s tax rate. Early voting begins October 18 and ends October 29.

Accomplishments

  • Set up a website for the district. Provides contact information, district calendar, meeting agendas and meeting minutes.
  • Implemented a system to accept Credit Card payments.
  • Developing a system to allow each customer to review their balance on line with password protection.
    The same system will allow for on line payments for customer invoices.
    The target date for this system to be operational is the mid-April billing cycle.
  • Generators at each well insure water supply during electric outages from storms.
  • The sewer treatment plant that is jointly owned by RPMUD and EPUD required several updates and repairs as a result of flooding caused by Harvey. These have been completed. In 2019, the districts will need to update the storage tanks at the plant.
  • Joint major sewer trunk lines were relined in 2018. This should minimize sewer line breaches in the future.
  • In the District’s ongoing efforts to reduced water usage, the billing rates were modified to encourage conservation of water.

Water Storage Tank

In March of this year, the district installed an aerator in the water storage tank at the well #2 location.

The purpose of the aerator is to provide improved circulation of the water in the tank prior to pumping the water through the district’s distribution system. This should result in minimizing the odor associated with natural elements in the water that we draw from the aquifer.

To date, the number of complaints has been significantly reduced.
