Attn:  NSPOA,
Thank you to all who attended the NSPOA annual meeting, in person or by Proxy.  As a follow up and as promised, please see below an update on the well drilling process.  Rich has been in communication with the well company and they have provided the following answers to our questions:
Question: When can we anticipate the start of the drilling for the new well?
                Answer: We are estimating to start the well-drilling process the week of July 18th. 
Question: What impact on the residents, home access, water access or other will there be?       
                Answer: The rig will be setting up on the drive to the well house so there should be no road closure.
Question: When we drill | frack, is here any additional impact on residents, water access?
                Answer: No impact as they can shut off the valve and run off the tank.
Please be sure that all are made aware of the drilling and share this information with your fellow owners.  Please take caution when driving in the neighborhood.  Since we are filling the well  just enough for our use, please conserve water and above all, please do not use water for power washing, filling spas and the like, until we are up and running again.
We’ll provide updates as they are available to us.
Well Water Problem
Posted on Jun 30th, 2015

Water Shortage at Nantahala Shores! 
Dear Nantahala Shores Property Owners,
As many of you already know we had some well system issues these past few weeks.  A house on Lot 27 had a plumbing break and ran water for at least three days before it was discovered.  This flooded the home but also totally drained the well system.   
Your  board has been working diligently to determine some viable options to resolve this water shortage. We’ve reached out to our well company experts and have scheduled several meetings to review and suggest resolution.   The well system is currently operating on the timer with a 30 minutes on and 120 minutes off run cycle which seems to be the most efficient cycle we could implement at present.  Typically the system is on a float switch, but after draining the system it will only pump approximately 30 minutes before we start pumping air.  Our well company has since installed a part that will allow us to put the system on the float switch permanently and will automatically turn off when it senses that it is pumping air and will turn back on after a pre-set rest period.  The well is pumping water but cannot pump enough to fill the tanks to allow the system to fully recover.   The system is recovering very slowly but that is entirely dependent on the usage of water and the rain we receive. 
We are posting  this notice as a warning to all who are considering a visit to the lake in the next two weeks. Water usage is already high and likely be higher as we approach the weekend which will drain the system dry.  We will likely have no water.
We urge you to reconsider any plans to visit for the next two weeks.   If your plans require you to be there, we ask that you and your guests be cognizant of the water issue and conserve as much water as possible as you will likely run out. 
We will certainly provide information as we receive it.  

What color would you prefer to paint the water tanks?
