COVID-19 Billing Change for March
In order to support those in our neighborhood impacted by the economic instabilities brought on by COVID-19, the LCMWC Board has agreed to the following steps to support our neighbors in this tough time:
We are extending the due date for the current bill, which is currently set for March 31st, to April 30th, to allow our neighbors more time to pay their bill if needed
We are waiving any late fees that would normally apply if the current month’s billing is not paid by March 31st
We will discuss further extension of this policy, or similar policies, as a Board at our April 21st meeting
Pipeline Replacement Program - Beardsley Road Access
We have replaced our old water pipeline with a new and larger one on 980 feet of Beardsley Road, from 19301 to 19160 Beardsley.
The final phase of the project included a full overlay of pavement on this section of Beardsley, which
has now been completed.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding through these inconveniences.

We held our Annual Fall Members Meeting on Saturday, Sept. 28th at 4:00 p.m. at a new location, located just above the creek, near 19451 Beardsley Rd.
The following LCMWC (Lake Canyon Mutual Water Company) topics were discussed:
- Financial Review
- Elected 5 Lake Canyon Mutual Water Company board members for the next 1-year term, ending September 2020.
The members of the board are now:
Following the meeting, there was an Oktoberfest Barbecue Party, with hamburgers, veggie burgers, sausages, chips, salsa and bottled water, along with many dishes brought by our neighbors.
This was a great way to meet and socialize with our neighbors, and particularly to welcome those who have recently moved to Lake Canyon.
Thank you to Rebecca Cabral for allowing us to use her area for the meeting and party.
Our 2018 Consumer Confidence Report is now available.
We test the drinking water quality for many constituents as required by state and federal regulations.

Our new Pricing Model began on October 21st, 2016.
This model charges the following, using a Base Fee plus a Consumption Fee:
Base Fee: $180 per month Base Fee (a change from the current $200 per month)
Based on each improved property
There is no extra charge for an additional unit(s) on each property.
Consumption Fee: $.01 (1 cent) per gallon for all gallons consumed up to 200 gallons per day average
For a 28-day billing period, up to 5600 gallons
For a 35-day billing period, up to 7000 gallons
$.02 (2 cents) per gallon for all gallons consumed over 200 gallons per day average
For the average member using 90 gallons per day, for an average 30-day month:
- the former charge was $200.00 per month
- the new charge is now $207.00 per month ($180.00 Base Fee + $27.00 Consumption Fee)
The less water you use, the lower your bill. The more water you use, the higher your bill.
The total company revenue is projected to be the same as our current revenue, so LCMWC can continue to meet both our
current costs and future capital costs.
