The board is still working to get all parts of the USDA Letter of Conditions completed. Easements are still an issue. If you have a pipe going across your property please be sure and get us your easement. Using your easement instead of a County Right of Way will save about $1 per foot in installation costs. A dollar may not sound like much but when you consider 190,000 feet of pipe that would be a $190,000 savings to all of us as subscribers. It should also be noted that there will be much less impact to traffic on the county roads if we can use private easements, as the flagging and traffic control requirements will be much lower than if we have to use County Road rights of way. Please call (970) 403-5790 if you have any questions regarding easements.
As of this time Phase 0 is making good progress. All of the 30” pipe from Lake Nighthorse to CR 210 is complete. 16” pipe is done from CR 210 to CR 141 except for a small section at the 210 & 141 intersection. Starting on Oct. 2 the 16” pipe will be put along CR 141 to CR 125. Traffic delays can be expected but probably won’t last more than a week. You also may have noticed powerlines going in along CR 210. Those are to supply power for the pump station at the lake. At this time Phase 0 should be completed in Jan. 2018.
First National Bank of Durango will be our Construction Loan provider for Phase 1. Having the construction loan financing in place before going to bid is one of the requirements of our Letter of Conditions for our USDA funded project. Many thanks to First National Bank of Durango!
On July 8, 2017 form 9:30 am – 4:00 pm the LPWWA Board will be available at the Breen Community building to help anyone to signup or to answer any question anyone might have in the LPWWA district. This is a come and go at your convenience event. We hope to see you there so everyone is up-to-date with the facts of the project. If you can’t make this event then please call any board member to answer any of you questions or help get you signed up.
If you can come up with $3,000 or more of the current $10,000 subscription fee before the July 10, 2017 deadline, we will work with you so you can make monthly payments to pay off the balance over no more than 56 months. In addition to the payments toward your subscription fee, you’ll also need to pay the monthly costs applicable to your subscription when service is available for your property. The easiest and simplest way to reduce costs for EVERYONE on the system is to get additional subscribers at this point in time. By getting more subscribers, the fixed amount of the USDA loan payment will be shared by more people than those currently signed up, which will lower costs for EVERYONE.
Call (970) 403-5790 for more details. Deadline to use this is July 10, 2017
