Customers Receiving Notification Letters on Capacity Units

LPRW has conducted an evaluation of monthly usage for all water service accounts.  The results of this analysis helps us determine current usage trends and current appropriations from each of our water sources to meet the needs of its customers.

Water is a renewable, but limited resource in southwest Minnesota; and LPRW is responsible for not over-taxing the resource, as well as its supply system.

All rural (non-municipal) connections are eligible to utilize up to 50,000 gallons per month, unless additional capacity units (1 capacity unit = 50,000 gallons/month usage) have been purchased.

Beginning August 1, 2017, a penalty of $5.00 per 1,000 gallons used above 50,000 gallons per month, or higher purchased capacity level, will be implemented.
