Call to Action: Committee and Community Meetings

Lookout Mountain Water District has a serious water problem

Lookout Mountain Water District (LMWD) finished 2012 with a seriously depleted water reservoir. Despite the recent snows, our reservoirs are only about 67% full (174 acre-feet out of a total 257 acre-feet).
Much of the recent snow fall (which statewide has only about 50% of the long term average water content) will not be available to LMWD because of senior claims downstream in the Clear Creek basin. In essence, all the water that is physically available to LMWD customers as of this last week in February 2013 is 174 Acre-feet. LMWD customers typically use 200 acre-feet per year.
To compound this very limited water supply it is entirely possible we could experience something not before anticipated – two years in a row without ANY in priority water.” This means we could go the entire summer, fall and winter of 2013 relying only on the water we currently have in storage.

It is still touch and go this winter. We need to be prepared for very tight water restrictions and conservation and a total ban on outside watering.

LMWD is holding a community outreach meeting to discuss this serious water problem, at 7:00 pm on April 4th, 2013 at Mt. Vernon Country Club. However, this is not enough. Concerned water consumers need to step up and get involved. The district can only do so much from an enforcement and regulatory standpoint. Realistically, this is a community wide challenge and can only be dealt with by the water consuming community at large.

Join one of the two committees being formed. One is the drought action committee. The first meeting is Monday, March 4, 2013 – 7:00 pm at Highland Rescue Team Station on Lookout Mt. Road. The other is the high-use non-residential committee. Its first meeting is slated for Friday March 15, 2013 – 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Mt. Vernon CC board room (rsvp required).

Sincerely,

H. Court Young, President

Lookout Mountain Water District
and Concerned Water User

UBB, looking east, Nov 2012

As of November, our main storage reservoir, Upper Beaver Brook, is well below it’s maximum capacity of 257 Acre-feet, as clearly shown in these pictures.

Conservation and reducing water loss is imperative as we enter the winter period.   

In Colorado, a drought cycle is often serveral years long. 

 Please be conscientious in your homes and notify us immediately of suspected water leaks or breaks:

In response to drought conditions this season, water restrictions are still in place; outside watering is limited to no more than two days per week.

To enforce this restriction and in an effort to offset the costs of buying additional water, customers using more than 20,000 gallons per billing cycle will be subject to an Emergency Conservation Surcharge of $5.00 per each thousand gallon above 20,000.

Furthermore, 72 taps in “The Ridges at Lookout Mountain” have additonal protective covenants.  No irrigation systems, lawns or swimming pools are permitted.
