No!! Look at what Kim had to put up with right here in Payson.
Pat, I can't tell you how many private wells for home use in Pine and Strawberry there are. Did find out that in Gila County there are approx. 5,680 exempt wells registered with ADWR. No agency regulates water supply or quality in exempt wells. For this reason, well-based water-supply system owners must realize their responsibility to understand the vulnerabilities of their personal water supply and commit to monitoring the quality of their water.

Okay that did not work so type in archives
New ACC complaints filed in Mesa del Caballo water dispute
(by Pete Aleshire)
In 2011 Mesa Del had 367 customers. I found this in the Roundup archives as well
If link does not come up enter the heading into archives that should work.
Searching can be fun :-)
When Mr. Dickinson spoke about the water outage last June and that the district spent $139,000 to repair it, you presume it was part of the old system. What they did not say was that the rework was needed on the brand new installation they had done for the Strawberry Hollow and Milk Ranch Wells they purchased. It would appear that whoever designed the system failed to install fail safe devices.
Here is breakdown taken directly from PSWID minutes.
The total expense associated with the emergency service interruption was $174,103.39. The expense breakdown was:
Facility (MRW #1, Strawberry Hollow) $62,442.30
Critical Equipment Backup (pumps, motors) 36,682.97
Monitoring Equipment 1,964.53
Water Hauling 21,795.74
CH2MHill Emergency Billing (to pay in 5 installments) 51,217.85
As for the turbid event it started months and months before and they dragged their feet before finally admitting that they found the Milk Ranch Well turbid. The public came forth with overwhelming evidence and again they could not blame that on the "old system"
Here is a bit more info I pulled from BBC website
Reiterating the judge's comments from inside court, Mr Rock said: "McCormick's profits were obscene, and fed his greedy and extravagant lifestyle.
"And finally, and perhaps most importantly, he has shown no shame, he has shown no remorse, and he carried on with complete cavalier disregard for the consequences of his con-trick."
He said the next stage was to ensure that the "extravagant lifestyle is taken away" from McCormick, saying Iraqi authorities will now be "pursuing compensation through the civil court process in this country".
Don, if you go to the Roundup archives and type in Mesa del it should bring you up to date with what activity has taken place and the latest on Payson/ Blue Ridge / ACC / SRP etc.
Maybe you will find your answers there. Good luck.

They had a law called "The Trade Descriptions Act" Any item sold had to match the full description given. The $77.8 Million should be passed onto a charity similar to our Wounded Warriors. Wonder if he will have an "accident" in the prison yard? Either way the authorities should not consider him for parole, but knowing how soft they are over there I very much doubt he will serve the ten years.
If word has got around, then regular folks will be attending the PSWID Proposed Budget Meeting this Saturday May 18th. I trust that the public will be allowed to ask questions and express an opinion, without intimidation from the board itself or its benefactors. (That would be the same group that made pie in the sky promises to the public and broke them.) No doubt the public relations machine will be in full swing, but the attendees themselves should be able to ascertain just how high the proposed increases are, in order to support the proposed $10,510,246 budget.
The views already expressed here have been eloquent and mindful of the financial consequences faced by those who live or own property within the PSWID district. During or after the meeting should the public feel that they are being taxed without representation, and that the board acts without due diligence or compromise, I have no doubt that we will hear it. If there are enough cries from the public for a recall of certain board members, then we will most likely have to move forward.
