Dear Community Members, we would like to welcome two new Board members to our LPWWA family, they are Doug Mize and Aaron Preator. Doug replaces our Animas-La Plata Water Conservancy vacancy for Roy Horvath’s three year term, and Aaron replaces Ken Spences’s remaining two year term. They took office on December 1st.

With both the president and vice president leaving, newly elected officers were made and at our December 11th meeting, the results are as follows:
Mardi Gebhardt – President
Paul Gray – 1st Vice President
Frank Smith – 2nd Vice President
Deb Flick – Treasurer
Barb McCall- Secretary

As a quick up date on our Phase One construction project:
While currently the project is suspended due to frozen ground and snow, here is our progress: All main lines are installed, with the exception of some bores and tie-ins. Meter pits are being installed in a variety of locations, working from NE towards Marvel and southern portion near Marvel north and meter pit installation considered approximately 30% complete. Our tank is completed but needs to be flushed, disinfected and filled.

There will be at least one open State Highway cut to be made south of CR 141, (Wildcat Canyon). We will be posting the date(s) as soon as we know them with a two week notice posted here on the website, Facebook and with State Highway – Lighted VMS Boards on the roadways.

Our rate study is still in the works. This study is being done with expert care and due diligence!

With your water system our priority, have a happy and prosperous new year,
