The daily Dei Ehos Ohio i Bald Friday May 25 1990 St. Barbara Parish Hall Cloverdale 2 sections serving fac to count area 350 per copy Delphos water system explained editors note this is the second in a series on Delphos water situation. Facts on the existing water system and the Overall operations of the system w ill be presented. Options a Reservoir water from Lima and Wells a will also be discussed. Further questions from citizens of the Community will be addressed. Questions May be sent to Rick Schuck water department superintendent or the Herald newsroom Schuck said a you can see using the formula that the City does not have the recommended amount of water to meet All contingencies. Granted these Are Only numbers on paper but in reality our records can verify during the shortage years Days when we were using 100 percent of the water our Wells would give us just to meet the demand for one Schuck says a your records can further verify Days when usage exceeded what our Wells would give us. When we Are using 100 or More percent of our Supply for Normal Day to Day usage it Means we have no available Supply for unexpected usage such As fires leaks or mechanical breakdowns. In these circumstances it Means the Only water available to meet unexpected demands is from our storage the Clear Wells and the he said a it is these times when shortages exist and we must ask for conservation measures. You May say we never ran out of water we be always had water when we opened our spigots. This would be because of the efforts of the City employees to prevent that from happening. Many times we were in fact Only hours away from running the system dry whereby you would not have had water the next Day. We have been fortunate that nothing major has happened to cause this situation from becoming a reality. All that would have been needed was a major fire and we would have run out of water. A it is because of the shortage situations experienced in the past that we have been trying to resolve the Issue by presenting the three options Over the past few years. Through dozens of meetings and countless hours of study three alternatives were presented a to Drill additional Wells to construct a Reservoir system or to Purchase water from the City of Schuck says in order to assess the Cost of the options the City had to review the needs of each alternative and try to align each alternative so each would be related to the other in terms of specific operational requirements a a in essence to compare apples to apples not apples to a was such we determined that each option should Supply us with an average daily usage of 2.0 million Gallons per Day with Peak Days of 3.5 million Gallons per Day. We also determined that each option should have High Quality and soft with these primary goals in mind he said he was Able to break Down the costs of each option. A to assess the costs involved we had to decide How to present the numbers in a fashion that would allow us to come up with ultimate costs that would affect the customers who would ultimately have to pay for the improvements. Quot we determined that we needed to know the estimated construction costs the financing Cost Over 25 years the debt per month per customer averaged out the operational and maintenance costs per month per customer averaged out any additional costs such As the Purchase of water and the total estimated Cost per month per customer averaged out a following that analysis the following was determined Wells option total project Cost $2,k Kkt. This includes drilling test Wells conversion of test Wells to production Wells installation of a water line from the Wells to the City estimated liability to repair any damaged private Wells and water Plant improvements which includes softening and filtration. Water Plant improvements would be to the existing facilities at the North water Plant with the removal of the South Plant from service due to age. Debt for 25 years $251,300 per year or $8.37 per customer per month based on 2,500customers divided by 12 months for 25 years. Operation and maintenance s21 per month per customer averaged out. That figure was derived from the latest operational costs projected for 1090. Including the 50 percent rate increase currently in effect. The operational costs of the upgraded treatment Plant Are expected to increase by 50 percent Over existing costs. Existing costs Are $14 per customer per month averaged out. Based on the 1990 budget. Under the present rates $14 per month will allow you approximately 1,700 cubic feet per Quarter. Total estimated Cost for the Wells option $29.37 per month per customer averaged out the actual Cost per customer will depend on total usage said Schuck.

Continued on Page 7a Iowa explosion called Accident Washington up a scientists told the Senate today the a plausible cause a of the explosion aboard the battleship Iowa that killed 47 sailors was an Accident caused by Over ramming powder charges into a 16-Inch gun barrel. Members of Congress and families of the dead 47 sailors bitterly assailed the Navy for its conclusion that the explosion was probably the result of sabotage by gunners mate Clayton Hartwig who died in the blast. But defense Secretary Dick Cheney in an interview on Cable news network said he was reserving judgment on the Navy. A at this Point id like to keep my powder dry so to speak a a Cheney said. Scientists from Sandia National laboratories Albuquerque n.m., conducted an Independent analysis of the Navy a original Iowa investigation at the request of Senate armed services committee chairman Sam Nunn a a.

The scientists testimony to the Senate committee came one Day after the Navy ordered a halt to the firing of the massive 16-Mch guns on its battleships and reopened its investigation into the april 19, 1989, explosion.

It could be from livestock wastes poor handling of chemicals during the loading or unloading or some other the amount of nitrate in the water frequently changes Prato said.
