Campus-wide inspection, if action is taken, what and why? Nothing to report

Summary of general operations: Nothing to report

Summary of Hab operations: Water tank and cleaned and repainted with a thick layer of elastomeric paint. The bottom had deteriorated and will need to be repaired. I have a plan to replace the lower inch or so with foam tubbing and then repaint.

Summary of Outpost operations: Water tank and cleaned and repainted with a thick layer of elastomeric paint. This tank in particular had a minimum coat of paint with many spots where the foam was exposed, so we are hoping this will protect it. The tank also needs the bottom inch or so redone.

Summary of GreenHab operations: The floor was power washed.

Summary of ScienceDome operations: Nothing to report. If the weather holds, later this week we will do a final coat on the lower portion to create a thicker coat of paint there.

Summary of RAM operations: Nothing to report

Summary of any observatory issues: Nothing to report

Summary of health and safety issues: The cement pad in the back of the Hab cracked a long time ago but this summer the rains lifted in half and there is about a one-inch lift on one side. Not much can be done but warning paint will be applied.

Questions, concerns, supplies needed and requests: Nothing at this time.
