Neither sewage recycling nor desalination nor some miracle technology will save us from drought
It is time for mandatory water restrictions, with enforcement and fines for violations

Southern California water managers are doing such a great job that you would hardly know we are in the midst of the worst drought since record-keeping began in the late 1800s.

Our lush, well-watered landscapes look as healthy and inviting as ever. Our fountains continue to shoot water in great arcs. Our freshly washed cars remain shiny and clean. On the surface, that’s amazing. Kudos to our regional and local water districts for an incredible job in “drought-proofing” Southern California.
We have only enough water in storage to get through the next 12 to 18 months, and that’s it. –

However, excellence in water management has a real downside: a false sense of security. It is exceedingly difficult to convey the urgency of the situation when most everything around us is green.

The harsh reality is that everything here was fine. We used to have a lot of water in California, but now we don’t. Without a few successive winters of above-average precipitation, we have only enough water in storage to get through the next 12 to 18 months, and that’s it. Beyond that, many of our state and local water managers have thrown up their hands because they just don’t know where our water will come from.

That is because drought-proofing is a misnomer. There is no proof against drought when there is no snowmelt to feed the rivers that normally refill our reservoirs, or when groundwater — our buffer against dwindling surface water supplies — continues to disappear with overpumping.

As hopes for a boost to next winter’s rains fade with recent forecasts for a weaker El Niño event than first reported, 2014 is on track to become California’s warmest year, and among its driest, on record.

It is time for Southern Californians to wake up and smell the dusty, dry air that has turned the rest of the Golden State brown. We are in big trouble too; we just can’t see it through the overwatered foliage.

There are three important steps that our region can take to have an immediate effect on sustaining our water supply beyond just 12 to 18 months.
RELATED: Water conservation’s other benefit: It’s a power saver
RELATED: Water conservation’s other benefit: It’s a power saver
Catherine Wolfram and David Zetland

The first is awareness of our water supply situation. Our water has three main sources: snowmelt from the Sierra Nevada, local groundwater and imported water from the Colorado River basin.

Unfortunately, all three of these sources are drying up. The amount of available freshwater from each has declined significantly during the drought. Even worse, best available forecasts indicate that the declines will continue for decades.

Second, it is time, right now, for mandatory water restrictions, with enforcement and fines for violations. If we must be forced to immediately cut back on water use, then so be it.

Just took a road trip thru California’s ‘bread basket’ (5 fwy from Orange County to Oregon)and witnessed hundreds of fields being flooded for rice(what???), over head sprayers chugging in the middle of the day(evaporation!) on thirsty crops(broccoli). We are doomed. Those…

Voluntary measures such as Gov. Jerry Brown’s emergency request to reduce water use by 20% are clearly not working. Coastal communities in Southern California managed to reduce water use by only 5% between January and May. Los Angeles, Long Beach and San Diego all recorded increases of between 1% to 4%.

Third, we must press for better management of the state’s groundwater supply. As the major source of irrigation water in California, and the critical reserve for all during drought, groundwater accounts for roughly 65% of the statewide water supply. Consequently, most of our aquifers are being rapidly depleted, with little regard for meeting future needs. These include the southern half of the vast Central Valley aquifer system, aquifers in Paso Robles, the Coachella Valley, the Imperial Valley and more.

Wade Graham

The governor is intent on sustaining groundwater reserves for generations to come. A draft document proposing new legislation that will finally bring groundwater resources under the state water management umbrella is on the governor’s website. It includes provisions to implement monitoring and management plans at the local level. Passage of some form of this legislation — and soon — is absolutely essential to ensure a sustainable water future for California.

This is a real emergency that requires a real emergency response. If Southern California does not step up and conserve its water, and if the drought continues on its epic course, there is nothing more that our water managers can do for us. Water availability in Southern California would be drastically reduced. With those reductions, we should expect skyrocketing water, food and energy prices, as well as the demise of agriculture.

We should not expect to be saved by sewage recycling, or desalination, or some miracle technology. As fundamental as they are to managing the region’s water supply, the scope of this drought and our demand for water far outstrip what current capabilities can provide.

Imagine a disaster movie in which 22 million people are told that they have only 12 to 18 months of water left. Unless Southern Californians pull together, we will be making that movie.

Electric Power Industry Will Face Significant Water Constraints According to New CNA Corporation Data

Recent CNA Corporation research has brought to light new revelations about water consumption and the electricity sector–including that electricity generation could become difficult in areas of the world prone to water scarcity or water stress.

“Given pending constraints in water availability, business as usual will be completely nonviable for the electric power industry,” Benjamin Sovacool, Professor of Business and Social Sciences at Aarhous University and Director of the Danish Center for Energy Technology at AU Herning, told The Speaker.

The research findings, on which Sovacool worked, were published on the CNA Corporation website, and included two complimentary studies, “Capturing Synergies Between Water Conservation and Carbon Dioxide Emissions in the Power Sector” and “A Clash of Competing Necessities.”

CNA Corporation is a federally funded research and development center for the US Navy and Marine Corps. CNA Corporation also provides research and analysis for US national defense.

“The electricity-water nexus makes ‘business as usual’ completely nonviable,” Sovacool told us, referring to the relationship between the amount of water used in energy generation and the among of energy used to distribute and treat the water. “Combined trends in population growth, increasing electricity consumption, and increasing water usage indicate that we cannot, and should not, continue to generate electricity the way we do today. Because water is an essential part of the cooling process for thermoelectric power plants, they may become wholly unsuitable as the globe enters a new era of accelerated water stress and water scarcity.”

According to CNA Corporation’s research, increasing water use will create water scarcity in 30-40 percent of the world by 2020, and will create a global water shortage by 2040. The resulting situation will be one in which decisions will have to be made whether to use water for energy generation plants–by far the largest consumers of water–or for human consumption.

Currently, power production operates with an assumption that there is no limit to water use. This “blind spot,” as CNA Corporation calls it, extends to policy and technology analysis–decisions about industry that involve water use by-and-large do not factor in water use.

Using a model with no water limits, power generation companies formulate graphs in which energy production is increased alongside an increased use of water–a less-than-realistic scenario, according to CNA Corporation’s research.

When actual water resources are accounted for, as well as more complex representations of water cooling, such as including carbon capture and storage/sequestration (CCS), graphs for future power production look very different.

CNA Corporation found that water consumption could be hundreds of percent larger than water limits.

“Including consideration of water availability in electricity planning fundamentally ‘changes the game’ of how we make future projections about power plants and capacity additions,” explained Sovacool.

This problem was found to exist globally. Although in the US the Energy Information Administration (EIA), which regulates the power sector, has recently been doing a better job of ensuring information recorded by power companies is correct, according to CNA Corporation, neither the EPA nor the Department of Energy (DOE) even have the authority to regulate water quantity–only quality.

According to the study’s principal author, Director of Energy, Water and Climate at the Institute for Public Research at CNA Corporation, Paul Faeth, “[T]he governing responsibility for energy and water are separated and fall into different ministries or departments which don’t communicate with one another.”

“In the US, for example, the regulation of the power sector, which is the biggest source of water withdrawals in the US, falls to the US EPA but they do not have the authority to even consider the impact of their rules on water use,” Faeth told The Speaker. “Nor do they EPA or EIA have any models that account for water use.”

However, the situation was even more bleak in the other countries CNA Corporation examined in their study. In France, India and China, the CNA Corporation team was unable to find any sources of water use data.

The revelations brought forth by the study have demonstrated the current global situation with regard to the changing nature of water resources.

“I suppose we weren’t really that surprised that most power plants do not report their water consumption, since this is not mandatory and most of the time water is free,” Sovacool told us. The research team recommended investment in wind and solar energy production.

“As we have shown, the electricity generation technologies that are beneficial for reducing greenhouse gas emissions correspond with those that require less water to operate, providing crucial benefits on both ends of the scale: reducing the inputs that contribute to the severity of climate change, avoiding additional stresses on water resources, and minimizing water use as climate change inevitably stresses water resources. Policies that promote renewables and efficiency thus provide multiple benefits beyond technical reliability and economic cost.”

http://scvwd.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=3&clip_id=1043 ravi acting unit manager time-stamp 2.57 sept 10 13 one ravi is just acting, the system except racks were built in 97 everything has been replaced, go back and see beaus feed back he and others talk 2ft form mic and sideways that’s 1/4 gain into a microphone voting system will integrate into existing amx control system, the system is a mix minus, the older board do not want hearing aids that said the person next to santos cannot be in that speaker, most if not all equipment has been replaced check dates and prs, this is to keep wasting tax dollars, they have not let myself nor the other tech fix anything or adjust so there is problems thousands of brand new equipment will be tossed, the remote gear all brand new tossed, all it takes is xap adjustments and proper mic use, but we are not allowed to talk to the board, they have wire pulled out to make it look bad, the tech there now refuses to have anything to do with the new room which they claim 250k, that does not include conduit, electric, wood work,cement and in house personal. call if you wish its your money and mine, but this is all to keep funding up. I put over 100k in new gear in there from 2000 on, look in the store room untouched equipment, the conflict is ravi, george Kamenjati no nothings, the tech is not 16yrs old just wanting to sell equipment, and no oversight, its a church in there not a board room. the golden place is just that a pit.

Every piece is or has an ip address so the it manager can snoop, but really for making adjustments outside the room or @ home.

Its a public room i can show you everything that needs adjusting or replace with equipment bought soon to be junked, sad thing is they listen to themselves, but refuse to show directors how to talk into a microphone, or allow adjustments, we spent over 250k last 10 yrs in improvements, longer mics, lighted, a control system that voting can be added to, new wireless, video conferencing(over 55k) used once, but taken out so they can say we don’t have it, even though ever computer can do it now, tandberg integrated with a system, ravi claims overhead speakers are the problem, those were removed, 10 yrs ago, Beyer intercoms were bought 50k for committee meeting, going to be junked for new ones, 80% of what is there is new and usable with adjustments and proper mic use, mic are to be used to talk straight into. check scvwd record on lawsuits, firings, and other issues, building parks next to directors house, paying for hearing aids, food and expenses go unchecked. even my medical records were told to many at the district, but that was ok, no issue with that even thou there are witnesses, harassment, retaliation on other IT workers who are to afraid to talk, this is the attitude at the district.
reads the 2012 diversity audit about management, you can sue them if your unclassified as they make 250k plus and can afford legal . The video below at item 1.4 you can also get the enclosed pdf we submitted, on there valley.org site if not ask, we complained to 22 managers, but after reading the audit i see why they do nothing, over 1 million has been spent on the old board room, which is called the golden palace, or golden spigot as they waste tax money when they should go to water. now they say the boardroom does not work, why gk ordered us not to touch or fix a thing, even though as the SR IT tech i had spent another 20k on hardware that sits, 10k in software contracts we were told to forget about. the bidding paperwork is almost done, they will release no foia docs, even though this same papers are given to the public at ever meeting on any job. that was in 2012 there is 60k worth of gear in the warehouse unused untouched as the new manager does not want to deal with it???? upgraded mixing system and other gear to be on internet in 06 still best equipment, VC put in 08 tandberg never used, and taken out so GK could say we don’t have it(57k) the room is a church not a board room 100k camera for streaming being junked, a amx video controller with joy stick 20k, bought 2012 junked, the bosses tell the big boss nothing but lies, the managers are paid to be there but everyday 1-2 hr lunch when 30 is the norm. After i spoke and even before i tried to slow down the waste, but they have ways to keep tax payer funding high, even in a drought, were funds should be for water.

dec 11th 2012 item 1.4 public comment were i bring items to light. pdf or more doc i can supply or ask them.

OVER 1 MILLION, BUT ASK PEOPLE TO CONSERVE WATER, dont you think a room that has 80% new equipment in it would be just fine in the time of need for money to be spent elsewhere? like water, they are sneaking this through no public comment, debate etc.
OR LET THE TECH FIX THINGS AS WE WERE TOLD NOT TO FIX A THING SO THEY CAN PUSH THIS THOUGH, the new design is almost the same as old, 3 docs to get your hands on…… they don’t even speak into the microphone but 2-3 ft away, sideways, there is 1/2 your issue. Along with not adjusting maintenance .

SOME OF THE AUDIT 2012 WHICH CAME OUT IN JULY SO VERY NEW/FRESH.

AUDIT 2012 SHOWS HOW MANAGERS LIE AND CHEAT TONS MORE WANT THE REPORT, ASK
1. A consistent and recurrent theme, and perhaps our most important
finding, is how perceived difficulties in the management of
employee/supervisor relationships and perceived weaknesses in HR
policies, procedures, and practices have impacted and continue to
confound the District’s Diversity & Inclusion landscape. This has been
exacerbated by multiple outside influences impacting
supervisor/employee communications and relationships leading to
mistrust and a perceived lack of accountability on both sides of the table.
2. A majority, 55%, of staff believed supervisors are able to deal with people from diverse
backgrounds and treat people fair and equitably. However, this was in sharp contrast to
being able to handle issues if problems arose when the confidence level in supervisors
fell to 18%.
“A study of employee’s write-in comments provides poignant examples of
the experiences, anger, disappointment and chagrin at some of the
practices which are prevalent in the District. The high levels of feelings …
is readily apparent. The statements are generally well organized,

thoughtful, incisive and required extensive time to present in written form.”
source: 1996 Employee Organization Climate Survey p 11. .
Analysis of write in comments and interviews resulted in the findings listed below:
? There is a perception that favoritism and power politics were the pathway for
upward mobility.
? Membership in a minority group or low status job results in distinctly different
experiences from white professional males. “These out groups are not restricted
nor defined by color but may be any subset of persons who are not in favor with
the group in power. “
? There are perceived issues of status and hierarchy inequities in terms of training,
access to travel.
? There are integrity issues in terms of not reporting sick time, stealing, lack of
confidentiality.
? Affirmative Action Office – was perceived not to be objective and to have total
control for all job actions.
? There were overt acts of racial or sexual discrimination.
The report concludes with the admonishment that there were ‘glaring issues which,
unless addressed by the leadership may become the Achilles heel for a well situated
and financially solvent organization. These issues are not likely to disappear over time
or through attrition. .. The issues come with strong feelings. The report concludes with
recommendations to develop an action plan with top management ownership, to analyze
the data on staff in terms of composition, grievances, complaints, to develop
accountability systems for managers in terms of employee productivity, communications. —- DISCLAIMER! —- Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

A consistent and recurrent theme, and perhaps our most important
finding, is how perceived difficulties in the management of
employee/supervisor relationships and perceived weaknesses in HR
policies, procedures, and practices have impacted and continue to
confound the District’s Diversity & Inclusion landscape. This has been
exacerbated by multiple outside influences impacting
supervisor/employee communications and relationships leading to
mistrust and a perceived lack of accountability on both sides of the table.

Santa Clara Valley Water District
March 25,2012
Paul Goeltz : Senior Information Technician
Ray Corral: Audio Visual Specialist
Dear Joe judge
Paul: Here is the full report completed ,in which I emailed you Jan 2, 2012
where I said both Ray and I were working on for you. There are alot of
discrepancies that should have a closer look into these, as I mentioned …could
be wrong or could be right. Close to completion of this document some other
events took place that Ray became aware of and are included here. This report
is highlighting the Boardroom, cancelled AV projects and unused parts,
unnecessary spending under the direction of George Kamenjati and Frank Fung
that impacts District public funds.
I’m going to start from this past October when I went on medical leave and there
were projects in the Boardroom that Ray was to complete and work with the
programmer like he has done in the past. George directed Ray thru email and
reported out that I was not to be contacted unless thru H.R. When I first left for
medical leave there were projects that were supposed to be completed by Ray
and the programmer Stephen Anderson, who was paid by George 2 years ago.
None of these took place: these include the Boardroom, Maple and B-108. The
~C seems very questionable also. I designed the aJv system for the EOC
( design was approved by Extron) , ordered parts, control software and
engineering contract. Not only was I taken off the project by George himself, I
was to report to the aJv temp when I was allowed to return to work briefly, then
they could not accommodate me on new hours. All parts for that project are still
sitting in the Winfield warehouse. A redesign has happened with my initial
design and parts scrapped. the result is increase in cost. I have had my phone
taken away, email cut off, some emails not responded to from George and
Frank, I was told if they could not find any work for me they could not
accommodate me, all kinds of pushback ( I had a email from George that listed
job duties that contradicted their decision and was told by H.R. after forwarding
that I could start the next day) I also emailed George at the very start of my
medical leave if he wanted Ray to pick up the updated Boardroom blueprints
which are updated with notes and for us to go over the projects so we can be on
the same page and to work on the urgent items in the Boardroom that needed to
HANDOUT
1.4B – P. Goeltz-

be taken care of, George never replied back to me. In the past when I been out
both Ray and I were in contact when questions came up so we could be on the
same page, I always answer my work phone ( George took my phone away
also) Ray has informed me that the new alv temp has been working from the
blue prints that are not updated, he got these from George himself when he was
already aware that I have the updated correct ones. If there was any questioning
that George had regarding projects a simple email or phone call should have
happened as there was always communication from all of us prior.
From George Kamenjati: Annual work plan 2011
“Paul is the only person at the district who has complete understanding of the
audio visual system in the boardroom, ranging from design and maintenance;
he is the unit’s main audio video technical reference”
“1 assured him my appreciation of his technical talents, and he’ll be a major
factor in the successful upgrade to the aging Audio Visual system”
Bill Knoff: Annual Workplan 2005
“Paul has been and continues to be dedicated to customer service. He always
stays on top of the audio/visual request”
Bill Knoff: Annual Evaluation 7/1/08-6/30/09
“Paul has an exceptional knowledge of the board room audio systems and has
demonstrated this with being able to assist with troubleshooting some problems
over the phone from memory. “
Ray: I want to be upfront also about a situation that I was forced to get outside
representation due to both George and Frank Fung and went up the chain of
command to get resolve to no avail, so I hope that does not dilute this letter and
only one needs to look at Georges management I PR forms the uncompleted
work and purchased parts that are still sitting there and money spent- waste and
careless spending. What is outlined here in regards to the audio visual system
in the Boardroom as well as other av projects that have been cancelled and or
not followed up by George himself, directly impact public district funds in the
thousands of dollars all under George’s direction. What really was an eye opener to me last week after a mandatory meeting on
3-14-2012 between Frank Fung and myself where i got in trouble. After months
and months of mind boggling questioning to myself and Paul Goeltz about why
have projects been cancelled, that meeting shined a light on my questioning of
thinking that George’s decisions for aJv staff to not troubleshoot or repair even
the smallest items or outstanding repair items that he was trying to make us look
incompetent in our jobs ( which still could be the case) but I firmly believe after
that meeting with Frank, both George and Frank were letting the aJv system
remain problematic so they could make sure that the AN system upgrade would
be approved.
Once again on 3-13-2012 there were some technical issues with the AV system,
in the boardroom. I reported out like i usually do. George emailed Michelle King
to let her know that the av budget did not got thru and that was forwarded to
Beau, he responded how much? Frank then sent the attachment for the amount
of $325,000.00 and justification for the audiovisual system upgrade. It said that
it was for the problematic system and was at the end of its life. I thought to
myself what?? And that is not true.
The next day George emailed me and directed me not to cc anybody else
besides him in regards to troubleshooting and assignments, after I had cced
both Frank, Charles and Michelle King on March 13, 2012 about the recent tech
problems since they are the ones who report out. I responded to him that I
always cc people who need to know and since I disagree with him to contact
H.R. and to let me know when. He responded that it would be insubordination if I
do not follow his direction and I replied I understand that is why I want H. R.
Involved. Frank was cc’ed on this and called for a mandatory meeting to which I
responded I did not want to meet with him alone ( due to past problems) and
only with H.R. present, he said it was mandatory and so I met with him. He
started out the meeting like he was going to give me my walking papers • this
whole situation between you, George and myself is not working out ok, and there
needs to be some changes” I said ok, and he continued that I have been
argumentative with George and questioning him a lot. I said what specifically
and he responded that the email I sent to Charles Wang were I asked for
clarification that we would be troubleshooting now since we were directed by
George not to troubleshoot or repair previously ( this was sent in email and told
verbally by George to a/v staff last year) that I did so to get George in trouble. I
replied Charles was already in the email thread before I mentioned that, I then
asked Frank did Charles not know that George had directed us not to repair or
troubleshoot? He just got all flustered and said he is not going to discuss that
with me. Half way thru the meeting he yelled at me ( I reported this as people heard outside his office- a co-worker told me he heard Frank). Towards the end
of the meeting Frank said that he does not want to get any more emails from me
regarding George anymore ( I had sent a email to him the week before when
there was a incident and got no reply from him- this was his response to that) he
did not want me to cc him anymore in regards to av and that I was only to go
thru George as I was directed by him ( to point out the obvious if there are
discrepancies with George it’s going to stay with him if I only go thru him) I
replied to him that the reason I do cc him is that he and Charles are the ones
who report to staff to keep them updated why wouldn’t you want to be included?
he said no more and to send emails to George only. I also said that since he is
the Unit manager these things should be a concern to him as George’s is
making bad decisions, he said no more and email George only. This is very odd
as Bill Knoff/ Seth Johnson always kept staff updated with the AV system from
Paul’s input and mine. On 3-3/18/2012 George reported out at our av meeting to
all that the av upgrade had been approved.
Months ago I had asked George in our 10n1 meeting if he is keeping staff
updated on the av system since they were waiting to secure a alv company to
do maintenance as we are not to touch. He replied that Frank and Charles were
the ones to be doing that and not him. I brought this up because we are the
ones that people look at and question when problems arise in the boardroom
( most recently Linda LeZotte, Richard Santos, Brian Schmidt and Sharon
Judkins all for different av issues during our boardmeetings) Beau had asked
me awhile back when are we getting the av system fixed as we are always
having problems with it. I reported that out at that time with email. I emailed
Frank after this meeting and explained this to him and also said I asked Michelle
King if she had been kept updated and she said no. Frank responded that he
and Charles would be putting a communique to staff. I just recently asked
Michelle King again on 3-13-2012 if she has heard from them on the boardroom
av status and she replied no. I am not sure if he only sent that to Sharon and
Beau .. If not why is it that staff is not being updated by them??
Below is some information on the Boardroom
4 AMXpower management units were purchased to preserve the component
life in the AN rack, the alv components were to be plugged into these units to
power down nightly and on the weekends to reduce heat and wear and tear.
These have been sitting upstairs for over 6 months or more. Stephen Anderson was paid for this but told not to contact him by George. (Pies below of AMX
Power Management Units- upstairs in 2nd floor HQ)

.”” –”I _ .. _ … ~ … • ~. _ _ __ • __… _~_
There was numerous parts purchased for Phase 2
and 3 for the Boardroom ( cables, connectors, tools
AMX parts) that was cancelled. PTE camera
controller for our main camera was bought this is
sitting in admin still, this was supposed to fix the
camera issues we were having, Stephen was
paid for this also. (Just recently because of not
securing av company George finally had to
contact him when we had issues)
Royal a vendor ( a Telecom company not a AN
company) that was used to install some
cables in the front and rear of boardroom pulled
the cables after a job was cancelled, the cables
are just lying behind the rack on the floor
making it impossible to go behind the rack with
out stepping on these. In the front of the rack
there was a cable coiled up together with one
that had a tear exposing the wire to the metal
and when touching them it went cracking over
the av system loudly ( this was after we were
asked to troubleshoot the system when the
program audio would not work when some public speakers wanted to playa cd
during one of our recent board meeting) we both reported these findings to George he seemed uninterested and to this day

almost 4 weeks now it’s still in this condition,

and since last year when Royal did thiswork.

Here is a example of the new podium that we
were asked by George to install, notice the
cable Management, cables wrapped up and
coiled nicely. But yet he takes no action on a/v
rack. The podium was installed 3/15-16/2012 the new av temp did most of the
work.
Riverview a AN company
that was finally secured had
to come down twice within a
week. The first time when I
reported out the Assisted
listening had went down, we
were asked by George to
trouble shoot and I did with
the software avoiding the
rack due to it being a mess, Mike the NV temp troubleshooted the rack but came up with nothing. Riverview
came out and a few hours later found out that the problem was 2 wires to the
antennas we not plugged in (a simple secure connection was all that was
needed) . The very next week they had to come down once more to fix the
program audio ( cd audio) and found that a RS232 connector that should be
screwed in was disconnected. ( Antenna cable· Left, RS232 Cable- right)
March 20, 2012 Riverview came down once again, one of the issues he came
across was a video cable that was not plugged in, he said its very suspicious,
that trlis is the third cable he has found unplugged.
At the very end, he was was talking to us both and said that “there is a lot of
configuration that can be used but you guys don’t utilize about 80% of the
system, there is a lot of redundancy with the system and he went on to say that a
lot of these problems that we are having could be solved if there was
communication between each other.”
Paul: Redundancy like every staff and directors spot has a full av system that
does not get used ( this does not need to be replaced) training would be
beneficial.

Paul- 30% of equipment in AN rack is usable in a digital environment
· AMX Power Management bought not used. programmer pre-paid, no follow up
· Vendors called If general maintenance from onsite av staff would happen it
would have prevented recent issues we were having including the following
with Chair LeZotte mic ( vendor found and cleaned the mic connectors
3-26-2012 updated just today at our Boardmeeting it occurred again and she
was frustrated, so I figured I troublsehoot on the spot and did a simple
procedure that seem to fix it, time will tell. I did so because we were live and in
a situation. ) I Director Santos touch screen going off (I changed the sleep
mode from 5 min. To 15 min)
· PTE Camera controller not installed, I have reported out camera issues
recently, this would have prevented that. Controller and programmer work paid
· Positrack camera controller was purchased but cannot be used due to the
PTE not installed
· COB AV AMX panel still out and not returned Stephen Anderson has this
· Log in code written by Stephen Anderson las year-paid no work done
• EQ.C -Redesign and parts still sitting in warehouse to be returned, new design
and new parts to be ordered.
· Maple Room cancelled last year by George, no reason given to this day, I
emailed Penny Larussa and she was not aware and questioned Why. If it was
not for me inquiring it would not been addressed, it is now getting underway,
still no acknowledge from George as why it was cancelled first place.
· 8-108 parts ordered work cancelled
· Podium: A brand new Boardroom podium was purchased instead of having
our carpenter Scott McKnight who was originally scheduled by AV team to build
one, George decided to purchase one instead.
· Public Address Speaker was purchased when I emailed it needs to be sent in
for repair. Thousands were spent and we could have sent in for repair or
purchased a battery as we did when the exact same speaker had issues. Paul
had purchased a battery and installed it prior the price was around $300. Not
only a repair would have been more cost savings to District, George did not
need to purchase a new one as their was no urgency and we have other
options, like the brand new speakers that were purchased ( 4 Mackie speakers
are sitting in our warehouse unused) over a year ago. • 3-26-2012. Just today at our Boardmeeting when I came in after my training I
was informed that our Sony DSR went down after a error occurred and would
not start up so they swapped it out. He followed up with a email for me to look
for a brand new one with extra capabilities, when I get a chance. Around 2 pm I
was informed from the other av tech that George was already looking for one
( he does this constantly, ask’s me, then does it himself or intercepts av tickets
to micromanage and take the lead) He is already to purchase a new one with­
ought me taking a look at it ( even though we are told no troubleshooting). I
have seen this error before and it clears up due to the tape not being put in
properly ( updated: 3-28, I got a chance to look at it, the tape was stuck, i
recommend repair) We have 2 other DSR that do the same thing and no need
to spend upwards of 4k or more for a new one with all the bells and whistles
that he is asking for. All we do is record to the tape for backup if the Granicus
system fails, if it does we capture the back up tape and transfer it to Granicus, if
Granicus is successful which it is 99% of the time we just record over the tapes.
There is no additional need for it to be on network etc. More unnecessary
spending from him.
We have all the emails to backup what is written here and will compile them also.
PR forms can be referenced with dollar amounts, dates and parts/service.
Not only.has this put us in a position with having to deal with the av system in the
boardroom, it has put the Directors and District Staff as well since they are the
ones having to use it and I am pretty sure they are unaware of IT management
directions. Dlvi,fon

Thanks George, I will take this info and come up with a (i.e larger view) for you. Already based on having the

equipment in 131, that will add a considerable cost. Does 131 have room for 3 racks, or do not worry about that?

Any idea’s you have please pass them along.

Why not put the equipment racks were they should go next to the user??
By user you mean administrator… which is you and ray correct?
Will there be a Heat issue? Do we need cooling there?
Again your expertise is needed here,
Remember you are the senior tech.
As there will require lots of cable and extenders, to put them there. They should go behind the av area.
DVI, CAT 5, or HDMI with vga inputs?
You Decide what is best, you are the expert Senior tech. probably it will be a combination.
Again, if this is hard for you to figure out on your own, please let me know asap.
To summarize, I’m not asking you to DETAIL the design; for now I just need a MACRO view (i.e. larger view) of the
system.

2 We have cable nowl You want to keep that?

I rely on your expertise what is best, but I would say chose what best support Digital environment..

Are we taping to hard disk or tape?

I rely on your expertise what is best, but I would say recording on disk is best and faster.

So the equipment racks you want in 131?

Yes

The committee meetings that system must tie in also right?

Also tie in the Back office /conference of the Directors,

Pre function rid of the old crt or keep them

I rely on your expertise what is best, but I would say chose what best support Digital environment

You’ve been using the board room for many years, and you have an IDEA on what they want, You would think it’s that
way, but unless you meet with the end users, you really have no idea? I will try.

I will try, but how to design a system without end user information, or what the room will look like.(podium, front/rear
table) and many others. Digital cat 5, HDMI, DVI, which one,?? Bluetooth, recording, granicaus, the old system is sent
through the building, MATV, CATV, cable or satellite? Displays, who gets pc’s, there is so many variables.
Please don’t assign tickets until then.

How about Friday 9/23 as a final dead line.
That will give me only one week to squeeze it in the first budget pass; I really do not miss out on the opportunity to have
the upgrade into the budget.

George I have been working with Steve on BR issue’s as you said that is first. And we had committee meetings
yesterday today and tomorrow. I had some questions about what you want, which I had sent before, we are not going
to ask the end user what they want need? Or we are just designing a room for digital use? What about recording,
Bluetooth, and a host of other items. What do the directors want, how can a design happen if we don’t know about the
front table, rear table, podium etc. Next week is free except Monday am Steve is calling back in, and the 15th I can work
on it but have to be with royal It took 3 straight days just to do EOC, and another to do changes. And more changes
coming.
Amx and voting is for sure digital as in cat 5, DVI, HDMI or provisions for all??
