Not much to report

There isn't much to report at this time.  Court will be coming up in a couple months but for now all is pretty quiet.  We here at STS wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Potential buyer pulls out.

According to THIS article Barry Field has dropped his interest in buying the sewer plant.  Some of the language used in the write up seems to indicate that people are still holding out hope that the sewer can be saved.

A stinky situation

We have been receiving complaints that the water being used on the golf course stinks like . . . well like what you might expect it to stink like since it's coming from the treatment facility.  This smell seems to be increasing.  We would like to hear from you about this.  If you smell or have smelled something when they are watering the golf course please let us know when and if possible where.  You may contact us directly or just post the information in the comments.

Something else to consider is the recent trouble in Toledo Ohio.  A blue-green algae bloom caused roughly 500,000 people to be without drinking, cooking or bathing water for several days.  There are several factors that seem to be part of an algae bloom like this.  Shallow water (The area of Lake Erie that this happened in is roughly 24 feet deep on average.), fertilizer run off and poorly treated waste water.  Ask yourself a few things.  What is the average depth of Lake Tansi?  How much fertilizer makes it into its waters?  What would happen if the treatment facility wasn't treating the water as well as it should or if it had too much sewage to treat?

We aren't saying that such a thing will happen here but it is worth thinking about.  Isn't it?

Potential buyer for TSUD

We have some new information to share today.  The Chrossville Chronicle is reporting that Barry Field of Field's Engineering Consultant Services, LLC (FECS) is looking into purchasing the sewer plant.  We don't know exactly what this means yet but it is certainly something worth watching closely.

One quote from Mr. Field in the article states, "I made the comment when I was asked to meet with the POA that if me being interested in purchasing your waste water facility and operating it and bringing it up to whatever standards we need to bring it up to, is something that’s hostile, then I don’t want anything to do with it. The first thing you have to do to succeed, you've got to have happy customers. If you don't have happy customers, you can’t succeed."

I find another quote from Mr. Field of particular concern, "Even with all of my infrastructure, it's going to be a situation where, for a few years, whoever purchases this facility has just got to put their big boy pants on and stand up at the Thunderbird and say 'What's happened in the past is the past. This right here is the future, folks. This is where we are. This is what's going to happen if we don't do this.'"
