Mr. Levey discussed the repairs to the spring house. He said Boonsboro desired to place the pipe to the treatment plant outside of the ground. The project would be split into two phases.

Mr. Bishop presented the Vulnerability Assessment and Emergency Response Plan that he put together in part, to satisfy requirements of the USDA loan for the Water Infrastructure Upgrades of 2012. He asked for input from the Commission as to any corrections or additions they might find upon reviewing the plans

. Mr. Levey noted the Regional Water Board meeting and that the Boonsboro representation declined to accept the shared cost proposal.
