The Village of Lodi has been a public power community since it bought its system in 1941. Such local ownership and operation of the electric distribution system ensures a greater commitment to service for all residential, commercial, and industrial users. The municipal system also provides free street lighting and electricity for all village owned buildings and parks. In addition to superior service, Lodi’s electric consumers enjoy a reduction in their total utility expenses. Electric rates for Lodi’s customers average 48 percent lower than rates charged by privately owned systems.
Lodi’s water treatment plant has been in operation since its completion in 1982. The facility was designed for a 1,344,000 gallon capacity. An abundant water supply is obtained for Lodi from three deep wells. After treatment, the water is stored in three elevated tanks at Bank, Redfield, and Highland streets to insure high pressure flow of water to consumers.
