2018

January 30: Spoke on the phone with UCONN Professor Gary Robbins who had provided Sherman with a water analysis proposal. 

February 16: Tim Simpkins, Marc Cohen (Solution Water Program Manager at Atlantic States Rural Water Association), and I met in discussion about Sherman’s water issues. We discussed the proposal from Gary Robbins and also went over the information from the 4 undergraduates of George Washington University who provided data on our situation.

February 20: Met with a private geologist (Paul Jaehnig) to discuss possible solutions to the high sodium and chlorides found in Sherman water.  

March 23: Set to meet with Lori Mathieu and Pat Bisacky of the Connecticut state water commission along with Tim Simpkins, Marc Cohen, and Paul Jaehnig. This meeting will cover possible solutions to remediate our high levels and to agree on a way to use less de-icing product on our state roadways.
