WATER SYSTEM UPDATE POWERPOINT

Alert       Advisory       Information

WINTER ACCESS PROJECT CONTINUES - We are excited to learn our volunteer plow group will continue the winter access program to several sections of Mountainside this winter. Last year's winter access program was very successful in moving vehicles from the parking lot to driveways to allow less parking congestion. Not all areas can be plowed by the group based on current donated equipment and volunteered time.

A group of volunteer members have been trained to remove snow from the roads in an effort to keep roads passable by capable motor vehicles in certain areas during the winter. A base of snow will be maintained for infrastructure protection and for snow machine travel.

Four wheel drive will be necessary to travel on the roads for many reasons. While the obvious of not getting stuck may seem most important another nearly as important reason is to carefully transit the area without spinning wheels which disrupts the base that has been groomed very intentionally and carefully for winter stability and spring run-off.

**In an effort to maintain good order and passable roads please help the plow group by not interfering with their pushback areas. DO NOT park on any road or off the road in these areas - even to unload.

**If you drive your vehicle in to your property you MUST park your vehicle entirely on your property. At the end of each plow area there is a turn around zone, these are not parking areas.

There will be times where the volunteer non-funded plow group has not had an opportunity to clear the roads based on other responsibilities. During this time help by using good sense and walk in until such time that the plow group has cleared the roads.

If your vehicle gets stuck or disabled you are required to have it towed out immediately as there will be no margins for other vehicles to pass as snow begins to stack on the sides.

It is with great hope and anticipation that this program will allow easy access to homes and greatly reduce parking issues in both parking lots allowing that area to be used for parking large trailers and two wheel drive cars.

At some point during late winter the volunteer group has graciously agreed to pay for a snow push back out of personal funds.

If you wish to help with this project contact Sue Pollard to receive training prior to moving snow as infrastructure and pushback have been marked for specific reasons. Because this project will benefit many and is privately funded at great cost to these members donations or any help is very much welcomed.

WATER SYSTEM UPDATE POWERPOINT BY CLARK HILL (CLICK THIS  LINK) - Members please take a moment and look at the PowerPoint by clicking on the blue link above. Clark Hill created the presentation for the membership to see what was accomplished this year with your water system. Clark and Verl are also to thank for the amazing transformation at the bridge this year. More exciting improvements to come!

IMPORTANT WATER SYSTEM INFORMATION REGARDING PRESSURE REDUCTION VALVES :

Over the past 3-4 years HLA has made major improvements in our water system.  Some of these include replacing 1-2 inch lines with 4 inch BLUE BRUTE lines.  We have dug up, identified  and made changes at the water storage tanks.  We have installed  isolation valves to assist in locating leaks.  We are currently replacing a one inch line with a four inch BLUE BRUTE line as that line needs to provide delivery service to three additional cabins.  One of our major goals is to provide redundancy to the delivery system and this new line will eventually be tied with one of the two new lines from the lake tanks. Eventually all four inch lines will be interconnected. These changes have allowed our system to increase water pressure to more acceptable levels of service at the highest points in HLA.  This is possible as the water stored in these new pipes has increased by 200-400 percent increasing gravitational push and helping us comply with state water delivery requirements.

Pressures have increased from sometimes 20 pounds (top of Aspen Loop) to up to 140 pounds at the cabins on Weber drive. This now requires that ALL cabins install pressure reduction valves in the line between your water meter and your cabin.  These PRVs have been required in new construction for over 15 years.  It is recommended that the installation be performed prior to turning on your water in the springtime.  A main line PRV will be installed at the top of Weber Drive next spring.  Installing one of these further up River Vu would have the effect of reducing the water pressure at the top of Aspen Loop to unacceptable levels.

Our goal is to replace all obsolete (too small and brittle) lines over the next 3-5 years.

Special thanks to the water committee, especially Clark Hill who has spent over 400 volunteer hours this year.  Bret Christiansen has done an incredible job of documenting our system which is a request that has not been met in almost two decades. As the documentation continues an effort to gather historical documents from past water directors and committees members will continue and all documentation will be scanned and kept digitally for our future generations to more completely understand our decisions today and control costs as the system develops and is replaced with modern engineering systems and materials.

Clark Hill has prepared a comprehensive PowerPoint for the membership. Please click this link to view.

PROPANE SUPPLIER ENTRY - The following five propane companies have been authorized to enter HLA to service customers.  Each company has been provided a FOB (frequency operated button) registered to that particular company.  Codes previously issued have been removed from the Security Gate System.  Any member who uses a supplier other than the five listed must escort that supplier into HLA. 

The propane companies are presented in no particular order and members are encouraged to shop the suppliers for the best price.

ATV CERTIFICATION - You can now get your child ATV certified on-line for $30. Go to http://stateparks.utah.gov/ohv/education for more information.

Hidden Lake Association requires any person under the age of 16 (or any person without a Utah Driver's License) operating an Off-Highway Vehicle on HLA Corporation property to possess a valid Utah OHV certificate. Property owners can be fined by HLA BoD for violations of this rule.

Also, any person under the age of 18 is required to wear a helmet while operating an OHV  on HLA Corporation property. If you are over 18 it certainly is a good example to wear a helmet and it can save your life!

LAKE FISHING - The Hidden Lake will be planted by a private vendor and paid for through HLA funds. The Hidden Lake is private property and is entirely within the boundaries of the Hidden Lake Association. Currently the lake suffers complete winter kill each year and there is no state funded fish left in the lake. Based on this information the lake has been deemed by the Directors as a private lake for fishing by members and their approved guests only, with unauthorized people being officially trespassed per this notification and gate signage. Additionally, the Directors voted to control fishing by implementing the policy of TWO FISH PER DAY PER CABIN.

HIDDEN LAKE HISTORY - In 2003 then President Dean Carr researched and authored a summary of our history based on the minutes from meetings over many decades. The book was bound and offered for a minimal price to cover the production cost. This week Dean offered to release the document as a MS Word document. It is available for download in the document services section. Enjoy learning or for some members reliving our interesting past.
