About Us


Our History

After many years of providing reliable drinking water to so many community residents, the Crawshaw family decided to sell Lakeland Management Company and White Rock Water Company. This was not an easy choice since the family operated the Companies with much hard work and personal dedication for many years.

The acquirer of the water systems is Abenaki Water Co. (AWC) which will devote all its technical skills and management capabilities to ensure a continuation of the quality service provided over the past few decades. AWC, which is a subsidiary of New England Service Company (NESC), plans to increase water system infrastructure improvements in 2014-2015 such as water main, pump station, and treatment plant improvements. AWC will also introduce on-line bill and credit card payment options via website for your convenience.


Importantly, AWC and NESC, a water system operator, together will provide significant management, operational, and engineering resources while having increased access to capital markets all of which will ultimately benefit you, our customer. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at (603)293-8580. We look forward to continuing a positive relationship.

Very truly yours,
Alex Crawshaw, Vice President
New England Service Company
