If you weren’t aware, this morning you get to enjoy one more hour of sleep, or a casual and relaxing morning as daylight saving ends today! Be sure to set your clocks and watches back one hour! Your smart phones, computers and other “smart” electronics will take care of themselves. Enjoy the extra hour of rest, and earlier daylight!

The Tustumena has made an unscheduled stop in Seldovia this morning! After 4 lines broke free in Homer, due to high winds and rough seas, the MV Tustumena has retreated to the safety of our protected Seldovia Bay ferry dock. She arrived this morning around 9am and as it stands right now, she has plans to stay through until tomorrow morning.
I spoke with the City Manager Tim Dillon who stated that the Tusty is on its way to dry dock for the annual maintenance of the vessel. This is just a holding spot until it is safe to get underway again. The ship is down to its skeleton crew, so there is no chance of dining on the vessel while it is in port – that would have been great! Also, for those who have called to ask if they could get a ride back to Homer, that answer is “no” also, as the Tustumena will be going back to the shipyard. So, we say “adieu” to the Tusty until the 21st of April 2013! Next ship to come into our ferry terminal will be the Kennicott!

After the recent flooding in so many areas on the Kenai Peninsula, the quality of the water in private wells is of major concern to the borough. The KPB is offering an opportunity to assist the property owners across the bay. (that’s us!) They will be sending over the test bottles so that we may take our well samples, have the samples returned to Homer, and transported to Soldotna within the tight time frame required for accurate testing.
Besides having the transportation handled for you, this is also a great opportunity to manage this timely test at a reduced cost! The homeowner will be responsible for the reduced price of $39 for the water test fee, and thanks to the City of Seldovia for taking care of the shipping costs!!
The Kenai Peninsula Borough is arranging to have water tests kits delivered to the Seldovia City Office on Tuesday, October 23rd – where interested home owners may pick them up sometime Tuesday afternoon after 3pm. If you are interested in getting a sampling bottle – please stop by the City Office early, as there is a limited amount.
The key to an accurate test, will be that the test sample makes it to the Soldotna testing facility within 24 hours from the time the sample is taken from the well. It is essential that you pick up the bottle and take the sample from your well as close to the pick up time as possible. The later the test the better (i.e. Wednesday morning), but you may conceivably test as early as 3 p.m. Tuesday. It’s a 24 hour time frame and the borough plans to have the tests to the lab by 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The bottles will need to be returned to the City Office for delivery by 11:00am Wednesday morning, as they will be flown back to Homer before noon on Wednesday. The Borough has arranged to pick all the samples up at the Homer Airport and deliver them to the lab in Soldotna.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Wells must be purified prior to testing. Click here to download the information required to test your wells.
