2018 LUC Accomplishments:

Support the City Municipal Broadband effort

On November 6th, 2018 City Council adopted a resolution establishing a City-owned retail broadband utility. The resolution provides that the City will build, own and operate its own broadband network and will seek collaboration with regional partners such as Fort Collins and Longmont to share resources to save time and money.
Complete a comprehensive update of the 2019 Schedule of rates, charges & fees
Community Outreach – Efficiency
LWP’s Efficiency Works program helped customers save energy by conducting efficiency audits and connecting customers with contractors that suit their needs. Efficiency Works distributed hundreds of rebates to Loveland citizens in 2018. LWP assisted customers in recycling more than 100 old (working) refrigerators and freezers. The offerings continue to grow as LWP provides programs that encourage citizens to save on their electric and water utilities.
Water Quality Laboratory – Design and bidding
The design of the Water Quality Laboratory is nearly complete. Adjustments continue as bids come in. Loveland water quality is tested frequently.
Continue the Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion
Construction is on schedule and on budget since design approval in 2017. Construction will continue through the first quarter of 2019.
Complete Circuit 911 (Big Thompson Canyon) Phase Two

Phase two of three is complete in the large-scale project to rebuild infrastructure damaged in the 2013 flood while implementing a variety of improvements to canyon power systems. This phase provided significant fortitude to the Big Thompson Canyon utility systems. Phase three is estimated to be finalized in 2019.
