|The primary operator, Larry Henry, received a Water Treatment 1 certificate on April 8 2011. The utility has a preventative maintenance plan, as part of the larger operations and maintenance manual. Willie Salmon is currently, informally, acting as the utility manager. He receives verbal updates from the water operator. Mr. Salmon does make routine checks on the facility in addition to periodically working in the utility. Mr. Henry, the operator, provides a list of daily activities and notes to the administrator when he submits his time sheet. The list identifies work completed and operations issues. The administrator was unsure if a safety manual existed but stated that safety meetings between the tribal council and the employee to discuss drinking issues occur. The utility has been operating at the proposed levels for the community. The utility provides reports to the council monthly during the council meetings. The most recent CCR is from 2007. Water operator, Larry Henry, was able to provide a hand written list of parts and supplies to RUBA. An email request to the ANTHC engineer asking for assistance in obtaining a formal critical spare parts list and a formal inventory control list specific to this utility, has not been returned.
