Recently, the District applied for $1,570,000 loan/grant through the DOE Centennial program. This money is to be used to design the phase two wastewater plant to start construction in 2023. The District is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant for $785,000 with the remaining balance to be a five year loan at 0.50%.
Several customers have experienced very high water usage due to running water inside and outside of the home which results in a very high water and sewer bill.
A few examples of running water issues:
- Toilets (this is number one issue of running water in 2020)
- Hot water tank and/or boiler pressure relief valves
- Dripping facets and showers
- Outside hose bibs (this has been due to the large amounts of snow sliding off roofs)
- Washing machine supply lines
- Service line leaks (customer water line from meter to home)
- Frozen pipes bursting
We strongly encourage those of you who have not yet registered for the customer water meter portal to register as soon as possible. This is a great tool to be able to monitor your own water meter’s usage and set up alarms to assist in detecting leaks. Set up only takes a few minutes and can save you hundreds of dollars on your bill if something should happen.
Please keep in mind that the new rates went into effect on January 1, 2022. Please visit our website at www.snopass.org to review the new rate schedule.
Instructions for setting up your water meter portal and online billing portal are attached. Please visit the District website at www.snopass.org to access the water meter portal as well as the billing portal.
