The Ranch

Monday, October 18, 2010

The Ranch Lakewood New Mexico 52 degrees mostly sunny to sunny and 80 degrees some wind this afternoon.

Here at the Ranch we have an RO (reverse osmosis) water system that gives us very good drinking water and soft water for laundry. The RO takes pumped well water thru several filters at high pressure and is then stored for distribution to all sites, ranch house and laundry. The quantity of water pumped at the well is monitored for our well permit and 30 percent of that quantity is waist from the RO system. This RO system waist along with high humidity, over eight inches of rain (in a desert?)

This summer underground water leaks from our distribution system caused high water use. Those leaks were finally found and prepared. Rain, humidity, low evaporation, high water use (leaks) caused the pond to reach close to maximum capacity and we do not want a spill. We have added two water circulator's to the pond which will increase the evaporation rate of pond water. Since October4 the humidity has been lower, no rain, no water leaks more rigs and people at the park using less water per rig, the pond water level is dropping slowly.

Domino's was a bust for the boys tonight, our first loss this month.
