CCR

The annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) is enclosed with this letter.  I highly recommend that you read through the report and contact us if you have questions.  You will see that that Mapleturn has had no violations, that your drinking water is safe and meets all federal and state drinking water requirements. 

Best Tasting Water Award

Along these same lines, it was announced at the annual picnic that Mapleturn has won the Best Tasting Water competition at the district convention of the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water Association.  By winning at the district level we will be competing at the annual state convention in Ft. Wayne this fall.  If we were to win at the state level; we would move on to the National Convention in Washington DC to compete for the Best Tasting Water in the Nation.  This is our second award.  Last year we won at the annual convention of the Rural Water Association held in Indianapolis.  This is a big deal and as a community we should be very proud....

Summer Work Report for Warren

 My main goal at Mapleturn Utilities is to install new water meters. In the past few months, I have installed approximately 85 of them. This has been my third summer doing so and we have already provided new meters for almost half of our customers since my time starting with Mapleturn. The new meters Larry, Rocky, and I have been installing are outfitted with remote-read endpoints. This technology allows us to read our customers' water meters in a more timely manner and without even having to step foot on our customers' property.

 In past summers, I have focused on replacing meters located in meter pits; however, this summer, we decided to concentrate our efforts on replacing meters located within homes in the Ramsgate, Mapleturn Road, and Warwick areas. This approach has been taken to improve safety and...

A Note from Jennifer Tillman

Hi Robin and Steve,

I am flattered by the nomination for good neighbor award and feel there are other more deserving residents who expend much more effort than I do on organizing a road clean up or two a year.  Over the years, we have managed to maintain a core group of about 12 individuals (including Calvin); volunteers are a key part of the success of our clean up effort.

This is our second stint in Foxcliff. In 1998 we moved to Foxcliff as a halfway point between Fishers, where Cal worked, and Bloomington where I worked at the time. (I got the better half of that deal.) We originally participated in Mapleturn Road when Christine DeVincent of south and Bruce Ewing from north led the groups. I think we took over the coordination effort around 2005.  

In response to your inquiry...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I realize that this is a very busy time; as we finish Thanksgiving and make preparations for Christmas and the New Year; but allow me to take a moment to say that Mapleturn Utilities would like to wish all of you a very happy holiday season.

A couple of “thank you”s from the past year:

     - This summer we put out a newsletter asking people to restrict the items flushed down the toilet. This seems to have had a positive impact. Thank you for your help.

     - Last spring we had a major forced-sewer main break. We ended up boring in about 100 feet of new line. Thanks to the people of Southampton Ridge for your patience.

A couple of other notes:   

     - Winter is here so - Please protect your water lines on those coldest nights by opening cabinet doors or running a small stream of water through the facets. Shut crawlspace vents and protect any water fixtures in the garage.

- More and more people are receiving their bills by email. If you would like to join them, send us an email requesting it and we will get it set up (we can do both, email and hardcopy if you like). mapleturnmembers@sbcglobal.net

- As you probably have heard; your water has won the Best Tasting Water in Indiana Award :)

And a short history lesson:

Isaiah 11:1 – A shoot will spring up from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.

Isaiah 7:14 – Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Luke 1:35 – And the Angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Matthew 1:23 – “Behold, the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel” (“God with us”).

Luke 2:11 – For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
