8. Lift pump efficiency, Atkinson tract

In an effort to improve economic efficiency of lift pump facilities, as well as reduce destructive impact to the RD1000’s North Drainage Canal, and to improve management flexibility during the drought year and the 2020 groundwater exchange program, management recommends installing a modification to a lift pump on the property. The pump would be a variable speed pump that should resolve the issues noted. Authorization for expenditure of up to $15,000 is requested. This would be paid for using proceeds from the 2020 groundwater exchange program from that site.
