Mr. Douglas E. Plunkett
Village Manager
Village of Granville, OH 43023
Dear Doug:
8. 644
The Kiwanis Club of Granville requests the Village Council' s permission to tap
approximately 125 Sugar Maple Trees. These trees are located on Village property.
The trees will be tapped in early February, and the syrup which is produced will
be used as a sales item in conjunction with the annual Kiwanis Pancake Day which
is held in April.
Each year, it is our distinct intention to donate a percentage of the profits to
the Granville Improvement Board, earmarked for the purchase and planting of young
Sugar Maple trees in desirable locations. The remaining profits will be used in
other community projects which are sponsored by the Kiwanis Club.
Included below are explanations of the basic items related to the tapping process:
How: Small holes, no more than 4 per tree, about 7/16"diameter with a metal
spout inserted, a covered bucket will be hung from each spout. Signs
will be placed strategically on the trees explaining who is doing the
tapping and how the profits are to be used. Mr. Bill Brady will be in
charge of the tapping operation.
It is an accepted fact that the tapping of maple trees does little or no harm to
the tree. The tap hole usually grows closed in a year, leaving no permanent damage.
Education &Publicity: Again this year, we plan to have several newspaper writeups
explaining what we are doing and how we will use the profits, and that no
harm is being done to the trees. In the past years we have received many favorable
comments from the people of Granville, concerning this project.
Kiwanis members, assisted by Key Club members, and other your groups will
periodically collect the sap water from the buckets. The sap water will be
taken to the Montgomery Farm near Alexandria to be boiled down into maple syrup.
We ask for your approval on this project. We feel that an activity such as this
will continue to stimulate " just a bit of old New England in Granville, Ohio."
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Respectively submitted,
William C. Acklin, President
Granville Kiwanis Club

On December 4, 1984, this office conducted public water supply system of the iVillage an evaluation survey of the Superintendent and of Granville. Mr. Thomas A. Galitza, in their presence. Mr. Larry Fruth were interviewed and the system was inspected
The purpose of this evaluation survey was to determine the ability of your system to provide an adequate, safe, and potable water that meets the Ohio Administrative Code and the National Secondary Standards.
General supervision of the operation and maintenance of public water supply OsyhsitoemRsEviisseda Cfuondcet.ton of this Agency as set forth in Section 6109.04 of the
have The investigation revealed various aspects of your system about which we the following comments and/ or recommendations:
1. Rule 37458- 3-04 of the Ohio Administrative Code requires that community water systems shall maintain a minimum pressure of twenty pounds per square inch guage at ground level at all points in the distribution system.
2. We are«aware that there are booster pumps installed in some areas of the Village. Steps should be taken to have them removed as soon as possible. We cannot condone the installation of residential booster pumps.
3. Please forward a copy of your contingency plan to this office. This plan should be updated as needed.
4. An air intake louver should be installed near, the celing of an outside wall of the chlorine room. This louver will allow fresh air to be pulled into the room.
5. Average daily water usage in Granville is approximately 900,000 gallons per day. Elevated storage capacity for finished water. is 350,000 gallons. We recommend additional elevated storage to bring total storage to the average daily water usage.

6. The elevated storage tanks are due to be inspected this year.
Hopefully, any maintenance necessary can be accomplished.
7. Two new filter backwash pumps have been installed since our
last inspection.
8. The Village Council has recently approved the installation of
liquid Carbon Dioxide which will be installed in early 1985.
This additional treatment should help tremendously in
producing a better quality water.

plant to help prevent excessive moisture and condensation.
10, Operation and maintenance at the plant appeared to be excellent.
11. Your cooperation in meeting the requirements. is appreciated.
