SECURITY POLICY STATEMENT
Since the events of September 11, 2001 we live in a new world that is now concerned
about security and threats to the utilities you depend on every day. At Lavalette
Public Service District, we take that responsibility very serious and work each day
to make sure the water supply to your home or business is the best and safest it can
be. To accomplish that goal, the Lavalette Public Service has adopted and enforces a
“Zero-Tolerance Policy” for vandalism, contamination, violence, and/or threats of
any kind to employees, the water system, meters, valves, tanks pumps, vehicles &
equipment, and buildings. We never know the intent of those who would commit acts
against employees and facilities so the safe course of action is a “Zero-Tolerance Policy”.
We receive frequent updates from the State and Federal Government about current threats
and are advised to enforce security in and around our facilities. We are very, very
diligent in keeping your water supply safe.
It has been our experience in the past that most threats and vandalism comes from
disgruntle customers, not terrorist or those wishing to harm our citizens. The results
can however be the same if our water system security is compromised by an act of vandalism.
Please be on notice that if you are one who chooses to vandalize, steal, threaten,
contaminate or create the possibility of contamination, you will be prosecuted to the
fullest extend of State and Federal Law.
The vast majority of our customers are people who are concerned about safety and security
and it is for those we have taken this stand and have adopted our “Zero-Tolerance Policy”.
