Conserving Water during the 2022 drought conditions

Thank you to all of our Shareholders who have been trying to conserve water this summer. LPC adopted a Water Conservation Ordanance in 2021 which is still in effect. This can be located on the website under Shareholder Documents. To all of the Shareholders who have purchased a meter reading device, please note that LPC will use their meter readers to deter the amount of water used. The meter reading devices such as Flume 2 must be calibrated correctly and possibly checked during the summer months if there is a discrepancy with LPCs meter reads. Some houses have a large pressure tank. In this case, when you turn on your water, water will first flow from the tank and your meter will not spin. When the tank is empty, your meter will begin to spin. In order for calibration to work in this situation, you must wait for the meter to start spinning before you can initiate the calibration. If you are still having issues, please contact Flume Support.

Water Restrictions for summer of 2022

Due to the ongoing Severe drought conditions that we continue to experience, all LPC Shareholders should do their part in conserving water.  LPC Shareholders that use culinary water for outdoor watering should not water more than twice a week.  Watering should only be done between the hours of 7:00 pm and 9:00 am.   Each Shareholder has a base entitlement rate of 20,000 gallons per month.  Please try not to exceed the base entitlement of 20,000 gallons per month to avoid increased rates.   Temporary Increment Water Conservation Rate Structure due to Drought conditions Effective July 1, 2021 Thousand Gallons Consumed Rate per 1000 gallons Cost Incremental Increase 20 $1.75 $35.00 Share Entitlement 30 $4.00 $75.00 $2.25 40 $8.00 $155.00 $4.00 50 $14.00 $295.00 $6.00

How you can check your monthly water usage.

  There are a few ways to check your water usage.  First, the monthly usage is on your post card bill if you get one.   Secondly, the email that comes out on the 3rd of each month with how much you owe has a link that takes you to Payclix where you can pay online.  When you log in to Payclix and click on your blue highlighted account number it will pop up an invoice with your usage for that month.   The third way is to order a water metering device that is connected to your meter, such as the Flume 2 device that allows you to see real time usage on an App downloaded to your smartphone.  If you decide to purchase the Flume 2, or any other water metering device, please ensure that it is compatible with the meters used by LPC.  LPC maintenance must install the device.  Simply call Jodi at 801-745-2088 to set up an appointment to have it installed free of charge.

USU Extension Gardening Team Helpful Drought suggestions.

  Drought concerns have caused many people to consider redoing their yards to conserve water. But before you rip out established lawn, shrubs, or garden beds, here are three things you can do instead. 1.      Harvest rainwater. In Utah, the law allows you to have two rain barrels, less than 100 gallons each, on your property. For more information   see our guide.  2.      Improve your soil conditions. Mixing in mulch or organic matter can increase your soil’s water-holding capacity. Even just a 1 to 2% increase in soil organic matter can up your soil’s water-holding capacity by 50 gallons in a 100 sq. ft. space. Check out the information   here   to help you decide which materials to add.  3.      Use drip irrigation for non-turf areas. Changing overhead irrigation to a drip line is not complicated (we’ll show you how   here ). Shrubs and trees vary in their water requirements, and using a drip irrigation system allows you to change the

Late Payment Fee Increase

Paying your monthly water bill late creates additional work for the LPC bookkeeper and the cost is shared by all Shareholders.  Currently LPC charges a minimal late fee of 2 percent of the unpaid balance each month.  In an effort to encourage timely payments, beginning April 1, 2022, a late fee of 10 percent of the overdue balance will be charged.  LPC appreciates all of the Shareholders efforts to make timely payments which helps to minimize bookkeeping costs.
