The Lake Chelan Sewer District (LCSD) and the Bear Mountain Water District (BMWD) are separate utility purveyors, each providing services to lakefront and upland properties along the south shore of the lower end of Lake Chelan. LCSD formed in 1956. BMWD as it presently exists came together in 2008 from joining of Lakeview Utilities and Hawks Meadows water systems. Lakeview Utilities had previously extended service to developments at Grandview Village, Clos Chevalle, Karma Kanyon, and water systems at Minneapolis Beach and the Lafferty system.
