The Longs Peak Water District delivers safe, quality water to about 1000 homes in Northern Colorado. We are dedicated to providing quality water as economically as possible while promoting water conservation throughout Northern Colorado.
The primary storage reservoir for LPWD is Carter Lake. The majority of our water is treated at the Carter Lake Filter Plant which is located below the south dam at Carter Lake. We have a smaller treatment plant near the LPWD office site (on Vermillion Road North of Longmont) which we operate primarily in the summer months to accommodate “peak” flows.
Our normal office hours are:
8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Mon – Thurs
8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Fri
Closed Sat and Sun
NOTICE OF PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO RULES AND REGULATIONS RATE CHANGE
Public notice is hereby given that on December 21, 2017 at 9:30 a.m., at the District’s administrative offices located at 9875 Vermillion Road, Longmont, Colorado, the Board of Directors of the Longs Peak Water District will discuss and take action on the amendment by the District of the following sections of the District’s current Rules and Regulations resulting in a rate change.
Effective January 1, 2018, the District’s Rules and Regulation shall be revised as summarized below.
ANNUAL RATE ADJUSTMENT. On November 17, 1994, the District Board approved a motion to increase rates effective January 1 of each year in an amount equal to (or approximately equal to) the Denver-Boulder Consumer Price Index (D-B CPI). Should the D-B CPI not be available, the National Consumer Price Index will prevail. Rates and Fees in regards to construction costs will be evaluated using commercial construction price indexes, as well as materials costs increases from the District’s suppliers.
Proposed rate increase to standard residential water usage and billing fees:
Current – 2017 — $15.00/mo. billing fee, and $3.65/1000 gallons
Proposed – 2018 — $17.00/mo. billing fee, and $3.75/1000 gallons
A copy of the Rules and Regulations and proposed changes are on file and open for inspection at the District’s administrative offices located at the above address during business hours.
Dated: November 16, 2017.
