LCU has lifted the Do Not Drink order.

May 2, 2012

Bayshore Utilities Customers,

Since acquiring Bayshore Utilities one week ago, LCU staff has been working as quickly as possible to address your questions and concerns. LCU understands the current situation and is working on putting together the most cost effective solution.

At this time, LCU knows that in order to improve water quality and reliability, a significant investment will be necessary to correct these issues. In this short time, we have learned that much of the system was put into service in the late 1950s and as part of that investment it will be necessary to upgrade the entire distribution infrastructure.

LCU is currently challenged with the plant being found in deplorable conditions and we are doing everything we can to keep the current system operating. We immediately put the entire community under a Do No Drink notice until we can obtain test results of the water quality. Once we receive those results, we will share the findings with you.

LCU was established in 1968 and prides itself on providing its customers with the highest quality drinking water as possible. You can expect reliability, efficiency and responsiveness to your concerns. We are committed to keeping the lines of communication open with you via phone, letters, email, town meetings and our website.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at:
