 Iron and manganese are pervasive in water sources throughout
 north Kitsap County. They are especially heavy in private wells
 around the Buck lake area.                                           HANSVILLE ATTORNEY
                     However, PUD water for north Kitsap comes
                     mostly from a well behind the former Kings-            Contracts, Demand Letters, Biz.

 Although the PUD flushes their system regularly, small deposits                        638-0236 | 394-4298
 of these natural elements build up in it. During periods of high             
 demand, notably including hot spells when many users increase
 outdoor watering, the flow velocity in the pipes increases, and
 can cause small amounts to dislodge, creating color in the water.
 Any black coloration in a toilet tank is usually from manganese.

 Iron and manganese are not dangerous, and if ingested, simply
 flush harmlessly through the body. PUD water meets all health
 standards. (Mr. Kimbler is a longtime local resident; he drinks it
 himself.)                                                              • Full Yard Service Maintenance • Brush/Tree removal

                             Greater Hansville Community Center | PO Box 133 | Hansville, WA 98340

Dear Community Member:

Were you disappointed when Kitsap Transit discontinued Bus Route 92 to our North Kitsap area? Would you like to have a public
transportation option available to the Greater Hansville area? If you answered yes to either question, you now have a chance to
do something about it.

Kitsap Transit is proposing to conduct a “Pilot Program” in the Greater Hansville area. They have come to the Greater Hansville
Community Center Board and offered the use of a commuter van, if a viable “Bus Service Plan” can be formulated within the
community. This service will require the participation of the users in both the administration of the service and the operation of
the van. We would like to ask that you take a few moments to complete this survey and return it to us at the above address as
soon as possible so that we may determine if this type of program will be sustainable in our rural area. If the results of this survey
indicate that there is sufficient support for this service we will continue to the next step. If the survey results indicate that there is
low interest in this program, the program will likely go no further. We realize that there are hundreds of questions that are yet to
be asked or answered; this is just the first step to determine if there is enough support and interest to go further with the planning
process. Your answers will determine what the next step should be. Please note that this transportation alternative is not intended
to replace or compete with the ACCeSS program in any way.

Please check or circle the appropriate answer below. Also, your comments are very important in determining the future of the
program. Please provide as much information as possible.
