ALERT! After approximately 12 years, HWC is beginning the process of applying for a rate increase. This will take some time, but we want our customers to be aware it is coming. In the past 12 years costs and regulations have increased substantially making it necessary for us to take this step
NEWS AND ALERTS
Our Springs have been keeping up amazingly well during this drought year. The new Highlands Well #1 is a blessing, providing back up occasionally as needed. We are happy to report that we continue to have no watering restrictions.
HWC continues to make improvements to the system. This summer we have added a chlorinator at the well. Our well produces high quality water with no bacteriological issues but because we chlorinate the water coming from the springs and at some point the spring water and well water mix, the chlorine residual would dilute at the point of mixing. Adding chlorine at the well
We are making good progress toward completing a booster pump that will push water from the well up to the storage tanks allowing well water to be used in the entire distribution system.
A new pipeline is being constructed that will allow us to get more water from the well to the booster pump.
