It’s been a busy spring at Lucity, and we’re very excited to welcome some new additions to the Lucity family. The City of Redmond, Washington, the “Bicycling Capital of the Northwest,” joined Lucity this spring. The city, located just 16 miles from Seattle, is home to 55,000 people (and Microsoft), and boasts numerous beautiful parks, miles of biking and hiking trails, and the state’s only Velodrome. The Scranton Sewer Authority in Scranton, Pennsylvania joined Lucity this month as well. In 1968 the Authority began to implement plans for a wastewater treatment plant and interceptor sewers. The project was completed in 1970 and provided the first wastewater treatment for Scranton and nearby Dunmore. Today, the Authority is a 20 million gallon a day rated wastewater treatment plant that provides service to over 30,000 customers. Picturesque Chatham, Massachusetts, is a 24 square mile village located at the “elbow” of Cape Cod. Chatham was incorporated in 1712 as a fishing and shipping village, and is now home to 6600 citizens. Interesting historical fact: Chatham is home to the Chatham Lighthouse, which was established by President Thomas Jefferson in 1808 to protect the ships circling the Cape. Located in the Mohave Desert is Lake Havasu City, Arizona, home to 53,000 citizens. The city is a destination for many recreational enthusiasts, but it may be best known for its London Bridge – the original 1831 bridge that once spanned the River Thames in London, England until it was dismantled and replaced in 1967. Robert P. McCulloch (the entrepreneur who first purchased the land surrounding the lake in 1958, and then incorporated the city in 1978) purchased the disassembled bridge, and the marked stones were shipped to Lake Havasu City and reassembled in 1971.The London Bridge is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Arizona, often cited as second only to the Grand Canyon.
Welcome to the Lucity Family!
