Lukins Brothers Water Company Treatment Plant Improvements

South Lake Tahoe, California

The Lukins Brothers Water Company (LBWC) is a family-owned private utility provider in South Lake Tahoe, California. They are regulated by the California Public Utility Commission and serve 975 customers throughout the area.

Lumos assisted the LBWC in addressing water quality issues (PCE) through design and construction management of a new water storage tank, granular activate carbon (GAC) treatment system, booster station, well rehabilitation, and other miscellaneous system improvements. LBWC then awarded Lumos a project to update system mapping using GIS (including deployment of field applications), develop and calibrate a new hydraulic water model, and design a new intertie with Tahoe Keys POA. Subject to available funding, future projects will include multiple phases of water system rehabilitation projects to replace aged and undersized system components and provide fire flow to the service area.
