PROSPECT ROAD DISTRIBUTION CIRCUITS

Construction recently began this spring on a double, three-phase distribution line on Prospect Road from Easley Lane to Kathleen Street. For a portion of the new line that intersects with an existing Craighead Electric Corporation (CECC) circuit, CWL has partnered with CECC to construct a joint use overhead power line. CWL is adding the two three-phase circuits to allow for better utilization of the new Farville Substation and improve CWLs reliability and flexibility in this area of the City. Killen Contractors, Inc. of Brandon, Mississippi began construction of CWLs double 13.2 kV distribution line, along with CECCs single phase line, on April 6, 2015. Killen completed the contracted construction on April 24, 2015. CWL crews completed the final phase of construction on May 7, 2015 and the new circuits are now in use.

SOUTHWEST DRIVE MOTOR-OPERATED VALVE

CWL will construct a motor-operated valve facility just south of the Valley View Church of Christ on Southwest Drive. This valve will be normally closed and divide the 475 and 530 pressure planes. The valve facility will monitor the Craighead Forest Road Tank, which is the tank on the 475 pressure plane in that area, and automatically open if needed to help maintain water levels in that tank. This will help provide more stable pressure in the area, as well as provide a backup feed into the Valley View area. Title research is complete, and we should receive title to the property in late June or early July. The facility is on schedule to be completed by late 2015 or early 2016.

PAYMENT CHANGE NOTICE FOR DISCONNECTED CUSTOMERS

Effective May 15, 2015, CWL does not accept checks as a form of payment for customers who are disconnected for failure to make timely payments on their accounts. Cash or money orders are the only acceptable method of payment.

WATER SYSTEM HYDRAULIC MODEL

CWL has contracted SSR Engineers to assist us in constructing a hydraulic model of our water system. The model will allow us to simulate major fire flows and demands from new development, which will help us to proactively and economically plan system improvements. We have been supplying information about our system to SSR over the last couple of months, and SSR confirmed in late November that the project is on schedule. The model should be completed in 2015.

WATER TANK MAINTENANCE

Maintenance, consisting of surface preparation, painting and miscellaneous repairs and improvements, on the Otwell elevated storage tank began on September 22, 2014. Both the interior and exterior of the 200,000 gallon tank was scheduled for painting and repairs. The interior work is near completion. Priming and painting of the exterior is in progress.

Interior and exterior painting of the 260,000 gallon Craighead Forest standpipe began on November 10, 2014. Currently, minor repairs and improvements are in progress. Surface preparation is planned to begin before the end of the month.

Maintenance on both tanks is scheduled for completion in mid December 2014, depending on weather conditions.
