Great Basin Water Company:
Do you know how the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) regulates private utilities like Great Basin Water Co.? When proposed changes are made to your water rates or GBWC presents plans on improving the system, the PUCN provides oversight of those decisions, trying to strike a balance between the consumer and the utility. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Consumer Protection (BCP) participates in PUCN decisions related to utilities, representing the interest of customers. Read more about the PUCN and BCP in this month’s article “How Does the Public Utilities Commission Regulate Your Water?” https://www.myutility.us/greatbasinwaterco/sc-news.

Southwest Gas anticipates beginning work on the first phase of the Spring Creek Expansion project in mid to late July 2020. This phase will include construction of approximately 3 miles of high-pressure steel, beginning near the intersection of 12th Street and Lamoille Highway and extending along Lamoille Highway to the Elko Summit. We currently anticipate providing natural gas service to Elko Summit Estates in the summer/fall of 2020. This phase of the Spring Creek Expansion project is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
Concurrent with this initial phase, Southwest Gas continues the process of design and receiving necessary approvals to continue extension of our high-pressure steel from the Elko Summit to Palace Parkway. Our current timeline anticipates beginning construction in early Spring of 2021. Residents and businesses within the Spring Creek area can expect to begin receiving outreach during that same time period.
Southwest Gas is also in the process of revising and expanding the information on the Spring Creek Expansion through an enhancement of our current Spring Creek webpage. A direct link, www.springcreekgas.com, has been created and will be used to provide natural gas facts, conversion information, construction updates, a link to a dedicated phone number and email and other future enhancements to keep residents and other interested parties informed.
White Cloud Communications has been busy since 2019. They have internet service to over 400 customers in the Spring Creek and Elko areas now. Several new towers are being installed in the SC area this year. White Cloud has partnered with Southwest Gas and will be putting fiber conduit within the SW Gas open trench. This will allow them to bring fiber to homes/businesses within the Spring Creek area in the future. Learn more about White Cloud at www.WhiteCloudCom.com.
Rise Broadband teams began a large scale project to overhaul and improve their network. This project will provide a better experience for current Spring Creek and Elko customers, but sets forth a path to provide the fastest internet speeds ever delivered by Rise Broadband per the company. Contact Rise directly at (844) 411-RISE or www.RiseBroadband.com.

CC Communications came before the Spring Creek Association's Board last year and said what we would do, and with construction underway, it is clear CC communications is the type of company that keeps its word. Our materials for phase I are on site in Elko and construction has started. We are in the process of designing the distribution facilities for tracts 100 and 400, pleasant valley estates, and locations NW of I80 in the City of Elko. Tracts 100 and 400 may be built prior to the main-line fiber arriving on Lamoille Hwy so that customers can be turned up sooner. Tracts 200 and 300 are scheduled to follow the SW Gas timeline. Please listen for updates on local radio and see www.springcreekinternet.com for future updates, pricing, and packages. Speeds up to 1GB, NO SO-CALLED $800 “subsidy”, NO mandatory monthly equipment fee added to the price, NO term contracts, and two-year price locks. As the oldest Fiber to the Home provider in Nevada, the first to deploy gigabit service in rural Nevada, and a true Nevada company, CC Communications is the right choice for Internet.
