The POATRI Board of Directors finalized the new procedures and account limits at the July board meeting. New lower monthly limits on water sales is our strategy to protect our struggling non potable wells. New forms will insure accurate record keeping and rapid communication concerning additional changes. Those having others haul their water will need to visit the office in person and fill out the new water hauler authorization form by January 1, 2024. It will be effective for one year and renew at each new year.
