Leak Repair Status Update 08-14-2018

August 14, 2018 by  
Filed under DISTRICT NEWS

The leak repair on the main line started on 8/13/2018 is temporarily complete and water has been restored to all locations.   Some locations may experience cloudiness, discoloration or pressure variations, due to air being introduced into the lines and sediment disturbances, which could last for multiple days.  All safety procedures were followed as usual and water is clean.  Please consider watering plants to get this discolored water out of your lines.

Unfortunately this repair revealed a failing main line, a nearby leak and other complications related to buried utilities in the area.  District Board and staff is holding an urgent planning meeting to address this matter so that a permanent line replacement can take place.  Notice for the permanent repair will be issued, however, the District will be watching this area for a unscheduled failure which could result in an unplanned water outage.

The leak location is near the Chief Hosa Campground. From this location, the line supplies 95% of all customer taps.

Rankin-Spears Lateral Water Outage due to Leak 11/16/17

Comments Off on Rankin-Spears Lateral Water Outage due to Leak 11/16/17

11/17/17 Update:  Repair is scheduled for today.

Notice to Members of Rankin-Spears Lateral:

The Lateral serving the Clear Creek Heights Association (Rankin-Spears) had to be shut-off this evening due to a main break located near the intersection of Colorow and Ballantine.

Since this was reported so late in the day, it is very likely the Association will not be able to obtain a contractor to start the repair until Friday morning– at the earliest.

Please contact your Lateral representatives for further information as the repair will need to be authorized by the owners of the Lateral.

The District will obtain status updates when possible and will be prepared to restore water once the repair has been completed by the contractor that you authorize.

Discoloration and air bubbles will likely occur in the water after the repair.

If you leave your home tomorrow, please be sure your faucets are all in the OFF position and consider obtaining some back-up water and/or making plans for your water needs as the outage may be for more than 24 hours.

Main Break October 5th

October 6, 2017 by  
Filed under DISTRICT NEWS

Comments Off on Main Break October 5th

A large and sudden break occurred in the early morning hours Thursday. Thanks to several who reported the flowing water, District staff was able to begin mobilizing a repair crew before 9 a.m. and stop the water loss.

Unfortunately, a large area of the distribution system had to be shut-down in order to complete the repair near the intersection of Lookout Mountain Rd and Colorow.

Many customers experienced no water or low pressure, depending on their location.

The introduction of air into the lines and the many pressure variations throughout the day has stirred up a lot of sediment and air bubbles, and this discoloration will be especially noticeable in locations with “dead ends” and may persist for the next 4-7 days. If you experience this discoloration, please do some watering, laundry or run your hose to flush your service line. The water is safe but we do not recommend drinking it until the sediment has cleared.
