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.

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.

REMINDER - Winter Street water interruptions

Posted 11/8/22

A reminder to Winter street residents, There may be temporary water service interruptions daily as the construction crew passes your home with the excavator. They need to disconnect the temp water line while they excavate and move the machinery past the temp line. Once past each location they should be hooking the lines up again. We appreciate your patience during this project. Please do not operate any of the temporary water connection lines or main inlet valve to your home unless the Crew or the Board communicates this to you. In general the crew will operate the necessary valves for you to have water. We want to prevent backflow leaks into the old system.

Thank you,

Brett Taber - ELVD Board Of Commissioners

Betterment Tax Bills - Resident Notice Regarding Water Bills

Posted 10/30/22

The 2nd issue of the ELVD water billing was recently sent out to water users of the district. This task is processed by the Hillsboro Town Clerk/ Tax Collector as support to ELVD by State Statute. By now many of you may have received your invoice. It may look different than you have seen previously. The main reason for this difference is that the Town of Hillsboro have swapped over to a new software system in the last 1-2 months. In this database, the naming or title of our ELVD water system fee is called ”Betterment Tax”.

Please be assured this is not a new tax of any type. This is the 2nd water bill for 2022 that covers the approved budget for this Calendar year. If you have any questions, please direct them to the Districts email: info@elvdnh.com or call the office (603)-464-3128 and leave a phone message that we can get back to you with a response.

Thank you,
ELVD Board Of Commissioners
