With varying conditions to be found at each location, an exact schedule of construction :  is difficult to determine. However, it is planned that actual service connections will continue to be made as an on-going program as the various sections of the system are completed, inspected, and approved. Traffic delays should be minimal, said David Stevens, Wells River Trustee. The Wells River crossing from Water Street to Maple Street was started on June 1 but completion has been delayed by the sudden high water from the heavy rains of June 2 . Construction will be resumed as the water level recedes, probably being completed this week. The next construction for that crew will be the second river crossing behind the Post Office. In response to inquiries about connections and the user charges, the Trustees state that there will be no charges made until the system is actually delivering sewage to the Woodsville sewage treatment plant at the com- pletion of the Wells River Village project, its inspection, and state approval. The contract completion date is still set at October t8 , 1982, and there is every reason to believe that contractor Ralph B. Goodrich of South Burlington can meet the  deadline. Resident Engineer Tom Key said that it appears that the project will be completed on schedule, barring any now unforeseen situations. Tbe Trustees are very 'disappointed not to be able to answer specific questions as to the amount of the user charges that will be put into effect at the completion of the .project, said Stevens. Those user charges consist of two components: a capital charge, and an O&M charge. The capital charge is the 30 year bond issue payment covering the costs of construction, engineering and financing for the local share of ap- proximately 10 percent of the total project costs. That local share cannot be accurately determined until the final audit by the Environmental Agency, which makes the final and binding determination as to what may -- or may not -- be eligible for state or federal funds. Then, FHA has to determine # . i ¸¸ iilili!!i ¸ LOVELY BALLERINA-- This young lady entertained the residents of the Home during the parade.

The O&M charge is for Operation and Main- tenance of the system, and is made up largely of the charge by Woodsville for treatment of the sewage delivered to them by the Wells River pumping station. The charge is based generally on a gallon volume basis. The O&M charge also includes operation of the Wells River sewer system, the pumping station, and a small sinking fund for maintenance and replacement. The Trustees point out that connections to the new sewer system are required by all buildings within the sewered area, as stated in the sewer ordinance. Each building connected is required to pay its share of the capital costs portion of the user charges. The O&M portion is based on the water consumption in the building. Thus, an owner who does not use water (vacant, etc.) will not be paying the O&M charges until he actually discharges into the sewer, although he will be paying the capital portion of the fee. As to the amounts of the user charges: The Trustees estimated at the annual Village meeting in March that the user charge total might be $220 for an average family -- the question is what is an average family ! Businesses and commercial hook-ups will be paying fees based on actual water consumption, and are not included in this average classification. For residences, the O&M portion could be $120 average. These as estimates only. However, the trustees do feel "reasonably confident" that the total user charge will not exceed this amount on an average if all goes well and as planned, said Stevens. Billings are planned to be made quarterly along with the water bills. The O&M portion of the charge may vary con- siderably from quarter to quarter depending on the amount of water used. The capital portion would remain relatively stable, varying only as buildings or units are added or taken off, said Stevens.
