Lake Valley Corner

Lake Valley Residents,

As promised, here is the area on our website where we will post whatever information we receive about the status of the requested merger between the Lake Valley WSC and SS WSC.  If the PUC approves this application, we look forward to welcoming all of you as new Members!

 

Thanks, and regards.

All,

Lake Valley WSC's Receiver Mr. Don Rauschuber and I, along with our respective counsel, had a meeting with the Attorney General’s (AG) office last week.  As a refresher, the AG is representing the State of Texas and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in the ongoing legal action that resulted in the Lake Valley system being placed in Receivership.  SS Water Supply Corporation and Las Palomas/Lake Valley are working to get the final blessing from the AG’s office for the STM application before the first court hearing about our proposed merger, which is scheduled for 3 August 2021.  If all goes well, after that hearing we’ll be able to formally submit the Sale, Transfer and Merger (STM) application to the Texas Public Utility Commission (PUC) so they can start their vetting/process.

As soon as I get more information, I'll post it.  Thanks for your patience, and regards.

 

v/r,

Carlos

All,

Great news!  At a (virtual) hearing today, the presiding judge of the 98th District Court in Austin signed off on SS Water's application to merge with the Lake Valley water system!  This was the first important step on the way to final approval by the state.  The next step is to formally file our application with the Texas Public Utility Commission.  We hope to complete that step over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks, and regards.
