The London Utility Commission obtains its raw water from beautiful Laurel River Reservoir. The reservoir was originally designed and constructed for flood control, power production and recreation. In the early 1980′s, the LUC obtained approval to construct a raw water intake structure on the Indian Camp Creek portion of the reservoir. Most of the drainage basin in this portion of the lake is comprised of National Forest. This type of watershed produces very good quality raw water. Raw water turbidities normally range from 1.0 – 2.0 NTU’s. The water is transported from the reservoir to the treatment plant through 10.5 miles of raw water main.
As a back-up water source, LUC maintains the raw water intake and pumping facilities at the London City Reservoir.
