As of April 17
Treasurer’s & Monthly Reports:
Preparation of the Treasurer’s Report (bank
reconciliations); for the Water, Sewer, Solid Waste Facility and the Administration were
compiled. The Monthly Financial Statements including Balance Sheet and Monthly Income
Statements for all four funds were compiled and analyzed. Due to the ongoing effort to
allocate the annual budget in to a monthly format, the current financial statements do not
contain budget information. A one page Summary Report was created for all end of the
month bank balances. All Monthly Financial Reports for the month of March 2014 are now
on the Board’s ShareFile Portal.
Vendor Check Register: Check register for the month of March 2014 is now on the
Board’s ShareFile Portal.
2014 Budgets – Work continues on the budget allocation to achieve monthly budgets that
more accurately reflect the anticipated monthly results. As these reports are refined, they
will become part of the monthly Director’s report.
Daily Accounting Functions - The Finance Department continues to maintain the timely
recording and reconciliation of all accounting transactions for all accounts receivable,
accounts payable, payroll, and budget related items.
Solid Waste RRF Fund – We have received a letter from AGM regarding the expense
reserves for the Solid Waste Fund.
Customer Billing: March Bills were issued late, with the last batch being mailed April 7th.
In an effort to reduce the number of customers receiving estimated readings, operational
staff instituted an aggressive program of taking manual meter reads. We are anticipating a
high volume of customer phone calls as a result of customers getting actual reads for the
first time in several months.
AWTF Improvements Project Financing – The permanent BNR project financing, a
combination of a PennVest loan and an M&T borrowing, is anticipated to close in the
May/June timeframe.
Water Fund – The Amalgamated financing deal closed on 4/10/14. This financing replaced
the Dexia financing instrument.
Page 1 of 2
General Ledger Software Conversion – Progress continues to be made on the Munis
software conversion – account structure has been finalized and user training sessions are
to re-commence in May. Integrated purchase workflows are currently being established.
Billing Conversion – This project has moved up in priority, due to the recent issues with the
City performing the billing function and the requirements of our pending Water and Sewer
financings. The City has informed us that after 12/31/14, they will be doing their own
billing. This enables us to focus efforts on our billing conversion to the Munis system
without the complication of billing for another entity.
Lockbox Implementation – Efforts have recommenced on the Lockbox project, we are
currently evaluating the switching the remittance address of the April invoices to the
Capital Region Water name and the Lockbox address; this should enable the majority of
the utility payments to be segregated for more timely processing by CRW personnel
utilizing the COH system.
Automated Payroll System – Installation of time clock at the Water plant is complete and all
employees are currently utilizing the automated system. We continue to experience issues
and delays with getting internet service for the Waste Water time clock therefore the switch
over to the automated time keeping system is being delayed until those issues are
resolved. A revised target date for the completion of the conversion is 5/1/14.
Software/Hardware - The GIS and Financial software server has been installed at the Water
Plant. Software configurations and data transfer will be occurring over the coming months.

GIS Mapping and Asset Management Project
McKim & Creed and HRG are finalizing “clean-up” work in Areas 1 and 2. Work
continues on the location of the DeHart Mountain Line from Dauphin to the City.
HRG developed a couple of applications to assist us in the monitoring of water
meter readings and battery replacement with extremely exciting and positive
results.
RedZone Robotics began work in March. They’ve televised significant portions of the
Front Street, Paxton Creek and Spring Creek Interceptors. Operations is working
closely to optimize levels in the interceptors to the degree possible to improve
production and quality of results.
A summary of the GIS program progress and expenditures to date is provided at the
end of this report.
Water
Capital Improvement Plan:
•
Elmerton Avenue Waterline Extension – We held a site meeting with DGS, HRG
and Rogele to resolve the issues surrounding connection of Pennsylvania State
Police on March 4th. Due to uncertainty about location of lines and isolation
valves, it was agreed that the most reasonable approach is to install two line
stops (emergency valves) to enable secure isolation to minimize impact to police
operations. The approach will require additional cost as this work wasn’t
Page 2 of 4
included in Rogele’s bid, and they’ve spent significant time and effort to address
the situation. DGS agreed to split the cost, and we recommend that the Board
approve Change Order No. 3, which includes the cost of this work ($23,456.00),
which will be shared equally with DGS. Change Order No. 3 also adds 90-days of
work time to enable Rogele to complete the work on the DGS site (including the
additional DGS meter vault work). There is no additional cost associated with the
time extension. Final restoration work will be completed in the Spring. [No
Update]
Recommend the Board authorize execution of Change Order No. 3
•
Industrial Road Waterline Replacement – Soils analyses from the initial samples
revealed non-aggressive soils. HRG will work with Water Distribution to identify
better secondary sampling locations. We will proceed with additional sampling
or design based on findings. [No Update]
•
Water Relocation - Susquehanna Township Storm Sewer Project – Latest update
is that work will likely occur in May 2014. Work has apparently been delayed by
the conditions this winter. [No Update]
Sewer (Wastewater and Stormwater)
Long Term Control Plan:
We have developed a draft of the Gantt chart identifying all CSS tasks as agreed with
EPA during our March meetings. We will participate in an interactive process with
EPA and DEP to assign schedules based on staffing capabilities and affordability.
Our next technical meeting with DEP and EPA is schedule for April 29th.
We have short-listed six firms to submit cost proposals for flow and rainfall
metering services necessary to support LTCP update modeling efforts. A preproposal meeting is scheduled for April 24th.
AWTF Upgrade (BNR):
Page 3 of 4
PC Construction submitted a baseline schedule for the project, and we’ve held
multiple meetings with all three contractors and our engineers and independent
meetings with our engineers only to develop a shorter completion schedule. All
parties are working together well, and there is a clear cooperative commitment to
completing work within schedule.
AWTF – Belt Filter Press Room HVAC Issues
HRG has completed their evaluation and is nearly ready to bid the work. This work
will be included in a scope amendment to the PENNVEST loan for the 2013 HAWTF
Improvements Project.
Recommend the Board authorize execution of the professional services agreement
with HRG to address the situation.
Stormwater:
I had a follow-up meeting with with DEP SC Clean Water Program to review their
files and discuss our progress on MS4 outfall mapping. The meeting was productive,
and we will continue to work together in the development of an Individual Permit
application over the coming months. [No Update]

April 2014
As of April 17
General
•
Continue recruiting for vacant positions in both Divisions. Filled Maintenance
Supervisor position at AWTF. Two (2) Field Maintenance Worker positions will be filled
by the end of April.
•
Continued discussions with City Department of Public Works, Mayor and Solicitor for
collaborative efforts regarding first response to roadway emergencies in City streets.
•
Participated in Asset Management program selection.
Water Division
S. 14th Street Sinkhole
•
Addressed main breaks and service leaks in 1400 block of S. 14th Street with minimal
disruption to our customers. Employed outside contractor to replace 475 feet of water
main and 53 service laterals. Monitored location during installation. Several other sink
holes that do not appear to be related to water leaks have become evident in the area.
•
Waiting for guidance from City Engineering before final restoration of the street is
commenced.
Meter and Battery Project
•
Replaced batteries and addressed non-autoread issues for accounts greater than 50K
gallons per month. Continuing to address non-auto read meters on the basis of usage.
Currently addressing non-reads in usage category 20K to 50K gallons per month.
•
With purchase of additional touch pad reading devices, instituted procedures for
manual reading of all accounts that were not autoread in the first week of each month.
•
Collaborated with HRG GIS team, City IT and Water Division metering with development
of GIS data layers for MXU battery replacement and meters that need to be manually
read. This will enable better quantification of the number of unread accounts,
determination of malfunctions other than batteries, as well as facilitate a more orderly
distribution of meter reading assignments.
Page 1 of 2
Miscellaneous
•
Prepared response to PADEP regarding water leaks from upper reservoir that ultimately
discharge to a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4). The issue raised by the
Department concerns a discharge of chlorinated water that could make way to a
commonwealth waterway. Dechlorination and daily monitoring of chlorine residual of
the discharge began immediately after receiving the inspection report, and
investigations to minimize leaks from the reservoir are underway.
Wastewater Division
•
Contributed in job conferences and construction sequencing meeting in regard to
treatment facility upgrade.
•
Participated in meetings and telephone conferences with regulating agencies and
consultants for Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) revisions and clarification of Nine
Minimum Control (NMC) Measures.
•
Investigated locations and feasibility of installation of remote overflow detection
devises for combined sewer overflow activation monitoring. This is in anticipation of
pending requirements that may be mandated by regulation.
•
Field Maintenance division has been diligently and promptly responding to customer
complaints. Tracking of responses, remedial activities, requirements of further action
are documented electronically in order to be migrated to the Asset Management
Program when implemented.
•
Continued shopping for CCTV equipment to assess underground assets and assist with
addressing responsibility for sink holes throughout the City.

As of April 17
Administrative:
-
The Consent Assessment of Civil Penalties (CACPs) document between CRW and
DEP for settlement of CEMs availability and associated air violations at the HRRF
during the second quarter 2010 through the third quarter of 2013 was fully
executed and the penalty of $39,636.10 was paid by THA. Subsequently Covanta
has reimbursed THA for the penalty.
Continue to assist the Executive Director with locating suitable office space for
current and future CRW management and administrative staff.
A meeting was held with administrative staff from all CRW facilities/locations to
discuss and begin implementation of office standards and branding.
Notifications and completion of forms for the name change are under way with
service providers and vendors.
-
Insurance:
-
-
-
The process of renewing casualty insurance for April 1 continued right up until
April 1. The process was complicated at the last minute due to issues that arose as
a result of the 14th Street sinkholes. Despite these issues we successfully renewed
the general liability, umbrella, vehicular liability and physical damage, workers
compensation, pollution liability, and public officials insurances at favorable terms
and pricing. The previously carried commercial property package and inland
marine coverage were dropped as standalone policies by rolling coverage into our
all-risk property insurance and into a new government entity crime policy.
Our general liability insurer and property insurer have been put on notice
regarding the sinkhole issues on 14th Street. Documentation of what has and is
occurring is being provided to them. Investigation of the cause is ongoing.
As requested a summary of the anticipated cost savings for CRW to insure the
AWTF Update Project via the OCIP versus the Contractor costs to provide
insurance for the project has been prepared and is available on sharefile.
Human Resources:
-
HR continues to work toward full implementation of the payroll system. Delays in
complete implementation have occurred due to issues with connectivity for the
handprint time clock at the AWTF through the City’s computer system.

In April CRW extended job offers and/or filled the following positions: Two Field
Maintenance Workers for Wastewater will be starting on 4/28. A Service Person I at
Water was offered and accepted the position of Maintenance Worker IV at
Wastewater. Since the November 4 transition date there have been 17 new hires –
10 non-exempt and 7 exempt.
Per the CBA bargaining unit employees with sick leave balances from 2013 were
provided notice of the option to cash in unused 2013 sick leave.
The update and creation of HR procedures and forms continues.
The availability of temporary employees to assist in the battery replacement project
has been investigated. Engaging temporary employees for this project is on hold
currently as CRW’s full-time employees are meeting most of the needs based on the
present supply of batteries.
A meeting is scheduled with EBS to discuss any healthcare plan needs or issues and
the renewal process for 2015.
CRW’s comments on the latest version of the draft consolidated collective
bargaining agreement (CBA) with AFSCME were sent to our labor attorney.
Hopefully this document can be finalized by the end of April.
Former City employees have requested that CRW make available the voluntary 457
deferred compensation plans that had been offered by the City. CRW is asking that
employees, who participated in 457 Plans with the City, provide us with information
on the plans in which they participated. CRW employees have available to them a
457 deferred compensation through ING.
PMRS has been contacted to ascertain whether provisions can be put in the CRW
pension plan to allow employees to make voluntary optional contributions to their
pension plan. PMRS has stated this is possible however our plan agreement will
need to be amended. Procedures and paperwork necessary to accomplish this are
in the works.
The draft 2014 CRW Employee Handbook document is still being reviewed.
Information Technology:
-
-
As stated under HR, we are still working through issues with porting the AWTF
handprint time clock through the City’s computer system in order to communicate
this information to our payroll company. The AWTF is dependent on the City system
for internet connectivity.
Methods are being investigated to access utility billing and collection data residing
on the City system.

-
-
Computer hardware and software is being acquired for the new employees and to
replace outdated equipment that is running Microsoft XP which is no longer
supported.
The CRW hardware and software lists are being updated to document CRW’s
inventory of equipment and programs at the main office, billing and collections,
water and wastewater.
A plan is being developed to establish a vpn to tie in all offices and facilities to one
system. Key to this occurring is the installation of a Verizon fios line to the AWTF.
This line is needed not only by CRW but also by the contractor for the AWTF.
Our consultants have been asked to provide a new plan for backup of all CRW
systems.
The evaluation of phone system needs is ongoing in order to implement a call
center type configuration.
