Water meter replacement Update (1/19/21)
The Loch Alpine Sanitary Authority Board held a meeting on January 11 to develop a plan to complete the new water meter installation project.
 
First of all we thank the 499 customers who scheduled the meter installation in spite of the pandemic. Most people say that it took around 15 minutes inside their home and that they did not feel threatened by exposure to the virus.
 
The remaining approximately 60 homeowners have yet to schedule an installation. The LASA plan is to move the contractor off site as of January 11th, with the intent of returning the week of May 17th  to install the remaining meters and clean up all loose ends within a one week period. The LASA Board encourages the remaining 60 homeowners to call and schedule their appointment as May approaches and/or post cards are received. The 60 homeowners will receive a postcard about 3 weeks prior to the scheduled installations requesting they call to setup their appointment.  When you get the notice/post card call (866.965.0657) to schedule your appointment. Click on the FAQ in the next column for more info.
 
New water meter readings were used for January billing cycle where available (90% of users). The results were good and bad.
The good news is the new meters appear to be working as advertised and making more accurate meter readings and data was easily collected.
The bad news is the new meters appear to be working as advertised and making more accurate meter readings, and some customer’s water bills have doubled since last quarter. If you are one of those customers who have seen your water bill increase, LASA suggests you educate yourself on the new meter and how it can help you manage your water usage and even find leaks in your plumbing system. To find new meter information, click here, or on the new meter information in the Documents column below.
 
January bill rates - not raised!  For those with new meters installed during the quarter, their January bill was a sum of the readings from the old meter and the new meter. The LASA software package calculated the total dollar value for both readings, but only showed the usage units for the new meter on the bill. Hence the rates appeared to be higher. This was not the case. FYI current LASA rates are posted in the Documents column below.
