Water System Interconnection
Feasibility and Route 302 Expansion 
Known issues with water quality/quantity for existing systems in interconnection area
Potential benefits to both existing BV and LBWP systems
Recent interest from multiple parties public and private
Potential Interconnection:

High quality, reliable water supply for connecting services

Fire flows for sprinkler systems, new hydrants along project route

Option to connect as a master connection, maintaining existing water distribution system ownership/operation

Master connection could feature single point billing through master meter, or individual metering/billing may be possible


Additional Benefits:

Lower Bartlett Water Precinct


                                   Allow connection of additional customers within existing Franchise Area to spread cost

                                  Additional connections would allow better utilization of existing infrastructure

                                   Consistent with mission of LBWP to provide reliable, quality drinking water to customers


Bartlett Village Water Precinct

Would provide backup water source, reducing need to rely on single source

Potential to allow new connections and expand service area

In addition to source redundancy, goal would also be increased fire flows in village


Potential Next Steps


Letters of interest from parties wishing to seek connection


Refinement of cost estimate for interconnection and estimation of cost impacts for interested parties


Initial funding inquiries with USDA, NHDES, and other potential funding sources
Preliminary Engineering Report Underway







Benefits: Individual Customers
