  • DIG OUT FIRE HYDRANTS

    • It doesn’t take long for fire hydrants to get buried once it starts snowing for real in Park City. Please make the effort (or recruit a few neighborhood high school students) to dig out the fire hydrants near your home if they’ve been buried. There are dozens of hydrants in Pinebrook, and even though Gorgoza Mutual Water Company’s staff tries to keep as many cleared as possible, there’s simply too many hydrants and not enough staff to get to them all, especially when the storms continue to drop feet of snow at a time. Your cooperation and efforts are greatly appreciated!

  • Spring Trail/Creek Trail Closed

    Gorgoza Mutual Water crews will be installing a water line from the Spring Tank above Buckboard Drive to the Pinebrook Park this summer. Unfortunately, the trails that runs along the creek at the base of Ecker Hill will be closed during the construction period, estimated at about two months. Please enjoy the other trails in Pinebrook so crews can finish the work safely and as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

  • Spring Water Sales

    You may have wondered about tanker trucks you have seen entering and leaving Pinebrook. They represent a short-term test of a possible opportunity for the Gorgoza Mutual Water Company to increase needed capital reserves without having to make a significant increase in rates.
    Parts of the Gorgoza system are more than 40 years old. The Company has recently completed a comprehensive study of its assets to identify useful lives and repair and replacement costs. That study illuminated the need to increase the Company’s capital reserves to approximately $3,000,000 by the year 2030, a requirement that would require an immediate increase your water bills of at least $10.00 per month.

    Coincidentally, Gorgoza was approached by the parent company of Mount Olympus Water about the possibility of purchasing water from Gorgoza’s spring water source to supplement their spring water production during down times for maintenance, high demand and emergencies such as the multiple hurricanes that hit the southeastern United States in 2017.

    The Gorgoza Board recognized that this might be a way to fund part of our capital reserve needs. The Board carefully reviewed our current and historic water system yields and demands, and determined that the system we have built up over years has source capacities and redundancies well in excess of current and projected needs. In other words, Gorgoza has sufficient source capacity to sell water to Mount Olympus without compromising its ability to meet all obligations to its shareholders.

    Accordingly, Gorgoza’s Board determined to authorize the sale of a limited amount of its spring water on a trial basis during the fall and winter months when our system has minimal other demands.

    A few summary points:
    • The sales price to the purchaser is significantly higher than what shareholders pay.
    • All equipment and delivery costs are paid by the water purchaser, at no cost to the Gorgoza shareholders
    • Water deliveries are restricted to daylight hours on weekdays, with no idling of the trucks while the tanks are being filled.
    • All revenues from water sales will be added to Gorgoza’s capital reserve funds, offsetting needs that would otherwise have to be met by increased assessments.
    • The Company’s highest obligation is to its shareholders. The arrangement with this purchaser is for the sale of surplus water, and will be curtailed or cut-off entirely if needed to protect local needs.
    • In the event the purchaser wants to explore a long-term arrangement with Gorgoza after the purchaser’s current emergency passes, the Board will conduct a thorough review of the trial period operations before any further commitment is made.
    • Long-term arrangements, if made, will include the purchaser paying to move the location where the trucks are loaded to a better location, likely somewhere along Pinebrook Boulevard.

    Gorgoza hopes that this information will be helpful to you. If you have further questions, please contact Shelly at 435-6497948 or via email at gmwc@gorgozawater.com.

    Thank you.

  • Fireworks Ban in Effect in Pinebrook

    Park City has officially banned fireworks this summer within the city limits. While there has not been an official ban of fireworks in Summit County, the board of the Pinebrook HOA has decided to be proactive and declare a fireworks ban in Pinebrook effective immediately through October 31st, 2017. The upcoming 4th of July weekend will be hot, and the tall grass from this spring’s wet weather has once again resulted in a particularly dangerous situation. ALL open fires, fire crackers and aerial fireworks are prohibited. Signage will very soon be put in place reminding residents of the ban. Please pass along the information to your friends and neighbors to help keep Pinebrook safe during the holidays and remainder of the summer. Thank you once again for your understanding and cooperation.
