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.

Attention Ellen Brook Road Residents

Posted 6/12/2022

Construction for the 2022 Water Main Replacement Project will be starting in the upcoming weeks. Throughout the duration of construction, all residents on this street will be provided water through a temporary water service connection at your curb stop or house spigot (if needed). This temporary connection will exist until the water main in the street has been replaced and satisfactory pressure and disinfection testing has been completed.

Temporary water mains will run along the edge of the roadway and connect from the existing water system to your curb stop. The water provided to your house will be the same water that is currently provided, just through a different temporary pipe. The plastic piping you will see meets all water quality standards for potable water.

Once the temporary piping is installed, each residence will be without water for a short period of time while the home is switched from the existing water main to the temporary water main. All residences will be notified the day prior to switching service.

Residents that are home will be instructed to run one of the taps in their house until the air in the new temporary piping is flushed from their service. If you are not home the day this happens, please be aware there will be air when the tap is first turned on. Run the tap until there is no longer air in the service line.

This is a standard operating practice for water main construction projects to maintain water service to residences while the existing pipe is replaced.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Emerald Lake Village District at info@elvdnh.com or 603-464-3128.

Thank you, Board of Commissioners

ELVD and Aquamen Water Solutions Recognized by State of NHDES As 2022 Source Water Sustainability Award recipients

ELVD and Aquamen Water Solutions Recognized by State of NHDES As 2022 Source Water Sustainability Award Recipients

Posted 6/6/2022

On May 24, 2022 NHDES Commissioner Robert Scott presented the 2022 Source Water Sustainability Award to ELVD and Aquamen Water Solutions. The state recognized the ongoing efforts that both the ELVD and their water operators; Aquamen Water Solutions, have put forth over the last couple of years at water conservation and loss prevention. This could not have been achieved without the support of many teams and people. As current Chairman, Commissioner Taber was present to receive the award along with co-owners Craig McGraw and Harold Smith, which occurred at the NH National Guard Edward Cross training facility In Pembroke, NH during the 2022 Annual Source Water Protection Conference.

In recognition of receiving this award, the ELVD Board would like to recognize the following partners in allowing us to meet this achievement. The entire team of Aquamen Water Solutions, our Engineering partners Wright-Pierce Consultants, the entire ELVD board over the last year; Sara Auger, Debbie Kardaseski, and Brett Taber; and last but probably the most important is every resident of ELVD. Without their continued vigil at reporting water loss issues, struggling through continued Water Ban restrictions, and their continued belief and support of the Board in the ongoing efforts being made system wide towards the planned improvements during annual meeting approvals. Thank you to all involved and for your continued support.

Thank you,
Brett Taber
ELVD Board of Commissioner Chairman
