    1. 15k gallon Tank was donated from local salvage yard ( they like the tax deduction)
    2. Backhoe was @ $2800.00
    3. welder to patch inspection hole and install 6" pipe and 3" pipe for vent and return.
    6" pipe is plumbed 6" off bottom of tank $700.00
    4. dry hydrant plumbing and rubber boot @ $600.00
    5. tank filling training with mutual aid = priceless

    Rob, I appreciate the above breakdown. A little hard to argue against this type of solution.

    I can't thank you guys enough for these ideas. They pretty much offer an answer to any uncooperative response from the board. I want everyone to understand that I like these people very much and a solution must be a cooperative one that is acceptable to all parties involved. The responses are kind of like those (response books) that telemarketers use to counter a non purchasing reply from a customer.

    It at least gives them and us some options to consider and will create an atmosphere of cooperation and sincere effort to come to a workable solution.

    Jeff, thanks for spending time on the phone with me tonight. I took a lot of notes. Will allow me to identify how much knoweldge is backing up their position and help identify if this is a sincere problem or a different agenda altogether. I'll post what the results are when I get some.

    Unless you have some other means, you can also put in the means to do your annual pump testing. Just a bit more piping and a place for it to discharge into the tank.
