LVRWD 9 continues to work to improve our water system to better serve our residents.
In November 2022 our board approved a rate increase for minimum and water usage to begin January 1, 2023. The rate increase will pay for the current and future projects that have been approved by the board in the Capital Improvement Plan. Also, LVRWD9 will be seeking to receive a 30 yr. State Revolving Fund loan to pay for the much-needed improvements in the district.
Install two new wells – Estimated Completion 2024
The Board approved the purchase of land so we can increase the quantity and quality of water that is distributed to our customers. We currently have 4 wells that are approximately 30+ years old and in 2022 to 2023 we will increase that to 6 wells.
Main line upgrade on 219th. – Estimated Completion 2024
The Board approved this project within the Capital Improvement Plan that will allow LVRWD9 to be able to serve several more customers and with this line upgrade it will reduce the number of old lines leaking or in need of repair due to the age of the line in the ground. There have been numerous leaks on this line and several customers have been without service due to the old lines cracking or having issues. This line upgrade will solve these issues and will improve the water quality and quantity for the residents of the District. Also new shut off valves will be installed to help reduce water outages when water line repair work is being done.
Upgrade line on 199th St. – Estimated Completion 2024
The Board approved this project within the Capital Improvement Plan that will allow LVRWD9 to be able to better serve the existing customers and possibly new customers on this line. This upgrade will allow the District to go from a current 2” line up to a 4” line so better serving our customers with the quantity and quality of water necessary for growth.
New Valves- Valves installed/replaced- 16 in 2022 --Valves installed as of 6-30-23 - 8 -- Valves left to be installed/replaced- ?
Valves help us to: stop/redirect water when we have a leak and are needing to make a repair. The more valves we have means less customers are affected by a line repairs when water service has to be temporarily stopped due to repairs. Our district has several valves in need of repair and several areas in the district that need valves installed. There have been several valves installed in 2021 and more were installed in 2022. In 2023 we are still installing valves as needed to continue to have less service outages when line repairs are being made.
New Meters Installed - Current customers with meters 834 Amount left to install-?
We installed 6 new meters in 2022 and have already installed 6 new meters by June 2023. The metron meters that are installed are designed to better assist our residents and our staff with detecting water leaks within the system. Not only will these meters help the District, but they also help our customers. The new meters read every night at midnight and send information to our district office. This will help find any leaks our customers have and the size of the leak or if a customers has left water running over night we can alert the customer (if their information is up to date) and potentially save our customers from having a higher monthly bill. Customers can sign up through water scope and log into their own account and see their meter so they can track their own water usage. By signing up, the meter will alert the customer via email about any possible leak or changes in water usage.
