Water Committee Meeting

March 18, 2015 - 10:00am - 12:00pm 220 MILL RUN, ZAPATA AgendaMinutes ZAPATA HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION Water Committee Meeting March 18, 2015

Call to Order: The Water Committee for the Zapata Homeowners Association held their first quarter meeting Wednesday, March 18 at 220 Mill Run at 10AM

Committee Members Present: John White, Jack Zeman, Pam George, and Jim Jones.


Damaged TNC water pipe and effects on the normal recharge in the northern portion of the subdivision until repaired on 3/14/15 Jack’s daughter took images of cracks in the diversion pipe coming down from Zapata Falls. The pipe is leaking water. The damage is due in combination of debris accumulation from the July 28, 2014 flood, and the failure to open the drain caps in the pipe for the winter. Any failure of the pipe should put water into South Zapata creek which should be able to contain it. Failure of water to properly flow through the pipe could affect our recharge numbers and timing, and have effects to our water decree responsibilities. Water call: The water call is due. John will submit the form to the Water Division.

Action taken:

Jack notified Duke Phillips Jr. and Bob Schultz of the cracked pipe

Recommendations to the Board:

Submit a letter to TNC, Water Division 3, cc BLM documenting the damaged water pipe and requesting what action will be taken by whom and by when to repair the pipe
