DISTRICT WATER IS SAFE FOR CONSUMPTION.  NO CONTAMINATION HAS OCURRED.

9/18/13: Water may now be used normally as we do not anticipate an outage at this time.  Please continue to be conservative in your usage; the District’s conservation rates have not been changed.

9/20/13:  As of today, the pipe is not visibly broken.  It will be pressure tested prior to permanent road repairs.

The District’s main distribution line in Clear Creek County is still in danger of failure due to flooding and erosion, however, we have secured an alternative water source.
Clear Creek County and the District’s Contractors are working on the repair, which could take several weeks.  If the line is damaged, the District will initiate delivery of treated water to all of it’s customers from a neighboring District. We also have a buffer supply of stored treated water in the District’s 1 million gallon storage tank.
Since the damage is considered extensive and repairs could take several weeks to complete, the District has obtained an emergency supply of treated water from Evergreen Metropolitan District for the duration of the disruption to our distribution main, should it occur.  Thank you EMD!
