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%

Water Rates temporarily are being returned to pre-drought rates

Due to the high volume of water runoff, LPC is temporarily lowering the water rates to the pre-drought amounts.  See Chart below.  The Board will be monitoring the use closely and will return the rates to drought conservation once the runoff has receded.  Please keep in mind, the State of Utah remains in a drought.  Outdoor water should only occur between the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m.  Updates will be posted to the website as needed.     Temporary Increment Water Conservation Rate Structure Effective May 31, 2023 Thousand Gallons Consumed Rate per 1000 gallons Cost Incremental Increase 20 $1.75 $35.00 Share Entitlement 30 $1.95 $54.50 $0.20 40 $2.20 $76.50 $0.25 50 $2.75 $104.00 $0.55 60 $3.60 $140.00 $0.85
