The System is flushed twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. Watch for a sign by the ICRIA entrance 2-4 days prior to flushing.
Flushing of the system reduces the settled iron in the system and reduces the "red tint" that occasionally can occur.
Thunderbird is participating in this organization via an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Grandview Estates Rural Water Conservation District and Louviers Water and Sanitation District.
This organization has been formed to monitor and help plan for the future water supplies necessary for rural Douglas County. The RWADC generally meets at the Sedalia, or Stroh Rd Stn 46, firehouse, usually on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, but it is an online Zoom-meeting during COVID. To attend visit Douglas County Public Notices and search for "Rural Water" to access the current agenda, and Zoom link or other location.
The Board is also meeting with, and monitoring the progress of, other organizations and individuals involved in developing sustainable and renewable water supplies (or generally sources other than wells) in the region. Our goal is to consider participation in the projects and acquire resources that will provide the best benefits to the residences served by Thunderbird Water.
