The Tariff is Lakes Region Water Company’s rules and regulations for water service. It includes current rates, applicable service fees and important customer information.
Public Water Utilities must also follow the rules enforced by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES).
A system is determined to be a water utility if the water system provides the public with potable, piped water for human consumption and has at least 15 service connections OR serves at least 25 individuals per day for at least 60 days out of the year. If the system is determined to be a public water utility, it must therefore follow the state’s standards for water service. The system must then follow the NHDES’ sampling schedule & report all results within a set time frame. The system must also report certain results to their customers. The public notice is usually a fill-in form created by the NHDES that the utility will complete with all applicable information. This type of notice is tailored to the type of contaminant, the value of the result & the degree to which the contaminant is a threat to the consumer’s health.
A copy of our Company Tariff is mailed to all new customers but is also available on the PUC website, on this website or at our office for review. We encourage each of our current or potential customers to read this tariff so as to avoid any misunderstandings regarding water service. This Tariff is required by the PUC & approved by the Commission prior to publication. If there is any change within the system’s rules or fees that the Commission approves, a new tariff must be issued to reflect these changes.
