Update on Third Party Engineering Report

Although we had anticipated receipt this week of the Phase 1 report from Aptim, the District’s third party engineer, it appears that delivery of the report will be delayed. In order to ensure the accuracy of its findings, Aptim has been given additional time to conduct its analysis of the design of the District’s facilities. We are confident that Aptim is working hard to provide a timely, thorough, and accurate report. We do not anticipate significant delays, and we will update the website once we know of a new anticipated delivery date.
