Increase in Water Rates becomes effective July 1, 2024.

During the Annual 2024 Shareholder meeting those in attendance were informed that LPC requested a rate study be completed by Rural Water to ensure the company can adequately pay for necessary upgrades and repairs.  This resulted in a significant increase to the Shareholders monthly assessment amount.  The Board has tried to keep the water rates low, however, with the Pipeline Replacement Project, necessary to decrease the number of leaks, and the Booster Pump Project, necessary to increase flow to the northern section of the system, we no longer have the ability to keep the low rates in place.  In addition to the expense of necessary repairs and upgrades, LPC has the expense of ongoing Attorney fees in an effort to resolve the lawsuit filed by Arrowleaf LLC involving one of LPCs water sources (the Bailey Tank).  LPC encourages Shareholders to continue their conservation efforts.  The base rate for 20,000 gallons per month has increased to $70.  If more than 20,000 gallons per month is

LPC will complete additional Spring time Water Testing

LPC is in the process of completing additional springtime water testing due to the slight change in watercolor that usually occurs each year when the snowpack is melting.  All culinary tests completed in March resulted in good results with no issues identified.  The lime beds above the North Fork springs have been upgraded and all follow-up tests did not result in any additional improvements required by the Division of Drinking Water (DDW).  The lime bed is the treatment in place to maintain an acceptable PH level which is used to prevent corrosive water. LPC is a Shareholder owned company, please keep in mind that all additional testing required that has resulted from phone calls made will be paid for by all Shareholders.  The suggestion that LPC can be fined would also be funds paid for by the Shareholders.  If you have a concern with your individual water supply, we recommend that you follow the DDW suggestion and have your water tested by their department.  The board consists of fi

LPC News

 The replacement of the Lime bed above the North Fork springs has been completed.  LPC is closely monitoring the testing to ensure the PH level is acceptable with the Division of Drinking Water.  Booster Pump Project (announced during the Annual Shareholders meeting in April) update: LPC has received final approval for funding from the Bureau of Reclamation for $1,547,700.  LPC will be required to match this amount dollar for dollar.  To date, the estimated completion cost of this project will be $5,422,000, however, the board is working with the JUB engineers to determine if costs can be decreased. In the event that it is necessary to borrow funds to complete the project an addition loan for funding is available.  The Department of Natural Resources has authorized the project to construct a booster pump and transmission line and to replace the current distribution line.  They will provide 60.8% of the project cost, up to $3,293.000, which the company will return to the state at 2.95%
