2019 Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)

Our 2019 Consumer Confidence Report regarding our water quality is now available.

We test the drinking water quality for many constituents as required by state and federal regulations. 

This report shows the results of our monitoring for January 1 - December 31, 2019.

You can review it by clicking the following: Consumer Confidence Report 2019

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.

Annual Fall Members Meeting & Oktoberfest - Saturday, Sept. 28th, 2019 

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

   - Updates

   - 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:

   Casey Farrand

   Jim DiZoglio

   Mindi Porebski

   Rebecca Cabral

   Susan Ady

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.

Current Pricing

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.
