Many thanks to the volunteers who helped design and build the new water storage project! Paul Ellis, Jeff DeBerry, Walt Wark, and Mike Felix. Water for the horse corral troughs has been purchased and hauled in 50 gallon barrels by the boarders since October to be in compliance with state regulations. Proving to be quite a challenge during the winter months! Now, thanks to these volunteers, water can be pumped into the 2 large 550 gallon storage tanks located in the basement of the association building from a delivery truck through the intake pipe outside under the deck. The water can then be pumped back out through garden hoses and into the horse corral troughs as needed. Resulting in far fewer trips to Bailey and less effort to fill the water troughs for the horses.
The Elk Creek Highlands/Meadows Property Owners Association will meet at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 1, in the Association Building located at 86 Elk Creek Drive, Bailey. Goals for our 2017 Firewise Community projects will be discussed and kickoff date scheduled. If you are interested in mitigating your property this year to help reduce the risk of wildfires spreading while building a safer place to live, do not miss this meeting.
