Emerald Lake Village District (“ELVD”) within the Town of Hillsborough was established in 1979 for the community surrounding Emerald Lake, also known as Gould Pond. Originally a subdivision of seasonal homes, it has developed into primary homes for the majority of its residents. ELVD through a Board of Commissioners manages the well based water system, the beaches and recreational areas, and approximately fourteen miles of roads.

ELVD is also a community of people who enjoy the unique advantage of their own lake and beaches, as well as the proximity of Fox Forest, Pat’s Peak for skiing, and access to the shopping and dining available in Hillsborough, while located close to Concord in the southwest part of New Hampshire.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION HERE


Water Use Fee Rate

Posted 7/12/22

The ELVD water user rate fee is currently a fixed rate for all properties that have an identified curb stop. Its established value is adjustable each calendar year just like the general tax rate. It is established to cover the ELVD water system operating budget as approved at Annual meeting. The district’s Board of Commissioners reviews the rules periodically to make every effort to keep the information updated and as accurate as possible.

The current calendar year (2022) water user rate fee is set at $1,141.00 per hook up. The Town of Hillsboro Tax Collector collects revenues like this for ELVD and then pays those monies out to the District.

If you have any questions, please direct them to the ELVD Board of Commissioners through the following email address:info@elvdnh.com

Thank you, Board of Commissioners
