Notice of Water Outage

due to unplanned repair needed starting 7 pm Thursday, October 18th.

A main break located inside the “buffalo tunnel” under I-70 was found and water had to be shut down so assessment and repairs could begin Friday morning, October 19th.  As always, LMWD will do its best to reduce service interruptions to you, the customer*.  Unfortunately, it is not always possible to avoid service interruptions given our pipeline ages, conditions and locations.

As of 10 p.m. October 18th,  temporary water was delivered via a connection from Genesee Water & Sanitation District (GWSD) and does not provide enough pressure for fire flows or to reach all residents.

PLEASE PLAN ON INTERMITTENT or LONG WATER OUTAGES, PRESSURE VARIATIONS, BUBBLES, CLOUDY OR DISCOLORED WATER. *Customers and fire hydrants to the west of Chief Hosa will not be affected by this water outage.

HOW MUCH AND HOW LONG YOUR SERVICE IS AFFECTED WILL DEPEND ON YOUR SERVICE LOCATION RELATIVE TO THE LOCATION OF THE REPAIR AND THE TEMPORARY WATER SUPPLY.

An unrelated break was reported in Paradise Hills on Sunrise Drive at about 2 pm on October 19th.  Paradise Hills HOA is working on this break, please contact the HOA representatives for updates.
