FEMA Map Update

 Message from Ken Savage:

 

 I have been in discussions regarding the new FEMA flood plan with G&W engineers (surveyors), which has the capacity to affect many of us.  Their local number is 323-7100. Henry is the the individual I have been talking to.
 
He has given me an estimate of $150.00 dollars each for three of us to have our property’s elevation verified. This price will go down somewhat if more people want the same service and can be done at the same time. This is the first step in applying for a revision to your property’s inclusion in the new flood zone. This is only a preliminary elevation shot, but it will determine if the elevation reflected on the new map is accurate. If it shows that the FEMA map is accurate, there is probably not much you can do. If however your property is higher than their map indicates, you may have some recourse. This would require a certified plat of your property reflecting the actual elevation and where the flood zone line actually is on your property. If you live on the river some of your property will most likely be in the flood zone. FEMA has a form, including the survey, that he will have to complete and submit. He has estimated the cost for this additional work to be between $700.00 and $750.00 dollars each. This price may also be reduced somewhat depending on the number of homes that want this service. I expect them to be out next week to check my property as well as Gerry Turner’s and Bill Aber’s. We still have plenty of time, months even, to address this matter.
 

I will let you know what we discover after the elevation check. If this is something you are interested in give them a call or contact me.

FEMA Flood Map Meeting

Date: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 6:00pm

Dear Selkirk Residents,

It has recently come to the attention of the Selkirk Community Association Board that FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has changed the Flood Plain Maps. It is our understanding that in February 2013, an engineering firm presented a new map to FEMA and once again, a major part of Selkirk (possibly including Zipprian) is again in the Flood Zone. After a few lengthy conversations with a gentleman in the Denton, Texas office he has received “permission” from his boss to come down to speak to us and present the latest map. And to clarify the actual terminology---flood zone, flood plain, flood way, etc. and how it affects you as a property owner.

The only time Mr. Voice is available to come, in the near future, is next Wednesday, May 15th. The meeting is scheduled for 6 pm. at the Selkirk Fire Station. This may not be a convenient time for many, especially those who do not live at Selkirk, however, a timely meeting is essential to learn the time restraints and process should anyone wish to appeal this new mapping of our area.

If you are unable to attend and have a specific question you want addressed, please email Ken Savage or myself by noon on Wednesday. We will be happy to forward any information we learn at the meeting.

Respectfully,

Barbara Silverthorne

Secretary-Treasurer (SCA)

SWSC Update

 

A message from Ken Savage, SWSC President: 

OH HAPPY DAY!  We have been operating solely on the new #1 well since Good Friday.   We did have to replace both of the old charge pumps. Also, as you may be aware, we have experienced several water leaks lately, mostly on the North end but no major problems. We recently installed some new cut off valves at well #2 and more are planned in the future.  These will enable us to isolate different areas of service and hopefully reduce the number of total system shutdowns.

We will now begin planning for upgrading the new well with larger storage and pressure tanks. Just today, I looked at an 8 to 10 year old system that was recently taken out of service by our operators in Sargent. It may be a relatively easy and economic solution to our future needs. It does need some evaluation. Please let me know of any problems or concerns.
