Limestone:  We will discuss at the next meeting.
 
Web Site:  No update.
 
Water Sampling:  Fall water sampling results were a little off due to contaminated sample bottles.  The acidity readings were way off.  It was decided to eliminate the acidity readings on the web site for the fall sampling.
 
Sample bottles had an acidic preservative although labels state no preservative.  Spring water samples should be done free of charge due to the contaminated sample bottles.  We are to turn in the sample bottles we have and receive new ones.  We have an e-mail from Shaun where Bill Sabatose stated that he would do the next testing for free.  We are to remind him.

Membership Dues:  At a later date, we will discuss if we need to increase the membership cost for 2021.
 
For the Good of the Order:  We will discuss meeting time at the next meeting.
 
Adjournment:  With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned by President Ruth Rowan at 6:46 pm.
