ORDINANCE NO. 51 SUMMARY RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERN- ING THE USE, OPERATION, AND MAN- AGEMENT OF THE DISTRICT WATER SYSTEM FACILITIES; ESTABLISHING SERVICE ZONES; AND, REPEALING ALL PREVIOUSLY ENACTED WATER ORDI- NANCES AND RESOLUTIONS The Board of Directors of the Quincy Community Services District hereby ordains as follows: T~5 Water System Facilities Chapter 1 Use, Operation and Management Supply: The District will exercise reasonable dill- gsnce and care to deliver a continuous sup- ply of water to the customer at a sufficient pressure at the meter, and to avoid any shortage or interruption in delivery. Meters: Meters will be installed at the property ov~er's property line and shell be owned by the District. Ownership of Meter:. The sa~vice connection, whether located on public or private property, is the property of the District, and the District reserves the right to repair, replace, and maintain it, as well as to remove it for non-payment or upon discontinuance of service.

This requirement shall apply to all new connections, or, when repairs or upgrades are made to the customer's ser- vice line. Chapter 2 Source Water Protection Purpose: The QCSD relies on groundwater for the safe drinking water supply. Certain land uses can contaminate groundwater and reduce or eliminate total capacity and/or use. To ensure the protection of these ddnking water supplies, this ordinance is established. The purpose of the Source Water Protection is to protect public health and safely by minimizing contamination of shal- Iow/surficlal aquifers and preserving and protecting existing and potential sources of drinking water supplies. It is the intent to accomplish this through both public educa- t/on and public cooperation, as well as by creating appropriate land use regulations that may be imposed in addition to those currently imposed by existing zoning dis- tricts or other County, State or Federal reg- uletions. Chapter 3 Cross Connections Purpose The purpose of this Chapter is to 1) protect the public water supply against actual or potential contamination through cross con- nectlens by isolating sources of contamina- tion that may occur within a water user's premises because of some undiscovered or unauthorized cross connection on the premises, 2) eliminate existing connections between drinking water systems and other sources of water that are not approved as safe and potable for human consumption, 3) eliminate cross.connections between drinking water systems and sources of con- taminaticn, and 4) prevent the making of cross-connections in the future. These regulations are adopted, pursuant to Title 17, Section 7583 through 7605, inclu- sive, of the California Code of Regulations, entitle =Regulations Relating to Cross- Connections." It is unlawful for any person, firm, or corpo- ration at any time to make or maintain or cause to be made or maintained, temporar- ily or permanently, for any period of time whatsoever, any cress-connection between plumbing pipes or water fixtures being served with water by the District's water system and any other source of water sup- ply or to maintain any sanitary fixture or other appurtenances or fixtures, which, by reason of their construction, may cause or allow beckflow of water or other substances into the water supply system of the District and/or the service of water pipes or fixtures of any consumer of the District. Chapter 4 Water Use, Conservation, and Water Related Services Findings and Authority The Board of Directors finds it necessary for the conservation of water to adopt and enforce a water conservation program in order to reduce the quantities of water used by the consumers who are served by the District. Said conservation measures and the enact- ment of this Ordinance are authorized by the provisions of Chapter 3.5 of the Water Conservation Programs, Sections 375-377 of the Water Code of the State of California.

McCall, Deputy Published FRB Jan. 6, 13, 20, 27, 2010 County counsel reorganizes---again Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold@plumasnews.com The Plumas County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the addition of a Deputy County Counsel II, effective in April, at a Tues- day, Jan. 19, meeting. County Counsel James Reichle told the board his request to add the position would replace the board's action in December, which expanded his department in a different direction. In December the board approved Reichle's request to add a legal assistant and promote his paralegal to an administrative assistant/ paralegal position. At the more recent board meeting Reichle explained he had acted under the impres- sion that his department would be handling matters relating to risk management and insurance in addition to litigation and contracts. Reichle said since the board took that action he had spoken to the county budget subcommittee and the auditor and reached a con- sensus that the county would be better off ff his focus was primarily on "trying to run a law office and trying to deal with things such as untan- gling the ungodly mess we have with contracts in this county and other things that are strictly legal." The attorney said these dis- cussions and advice from county counsel paralegal Liz Cortez, who has been work- ing with the county for years and who Reichle credits for essentially running his of. rice, led him to believe his department would be better prepared to focus directly on legal matters if he hired a deputy county counsel instead of the previously requested reorganization. Reichle told the super- visors he had promised to try being the only attorney in his department when they appointed him, and they had every right to terminate his contract given that he was nov] changing his mind. How- ever, he thought this new arrangement would be the best for the county at this point. Board chairwoman Sherrie Thrall said she and Super- visor Lori Simpson met with the budget committee and agreed that having Reichle focus primarily on being the county's attorney was the best option and the new staffing suggestion made the most sense to them. Thrall said auditor Shawn Montgomery agreed to take on risk management to allow Reichle to make the change. The auditor would come to the board with a proposal in the near future. Reichle explained the change wouldn't lead to an increase in his budget this fiscal year as the position would only be funded for the last quarter. He said the position would cost under $25,000 in salary and benefits for that quarter and that the funds would be transferred from a profes- sional services line item in the county counsel budget. Comparing apples to or- anges, a position costing somewhere in the area of $100,000 for salary and bene- fits will most probably be more expensive than the Legal Assistant II position Reichle would have filled in the previous reorganization plan, which had an entry level salary of $39,492. Even with that increase, the current county counsel office with Reichle's largest salary three years from now projected at $168,000; the Paralegal III position salary ceiling of around $48,000; and the new $I00,000 position, including salary and benefits, the department's personnel expenses will probably still be less than half of the roughly $1 million the county feared it could end up paying for various"leg~l services when the courity'!idontracted out to the firm of Cota and Cole and several other firms to cover the tasks the depart- ment now handles. CLUB HAPPENINGS Members of the St. John's Grassroots Cribbage Club voted unanimously Jan. 24, to donate 12 percent of the club's funds to Doctors With- out Borders for Haitian relief.
