Annual Water Line Flushing Rescheduled

 

April 18, 2013 - Due to inclement weather, the water line flushing program has been rescheduled and will begin Monday, April 22, 2013. We will make every attempt to stay on this schedule, but it is subject to change based on weather and unforeseen problems.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Utility Operations at 303-651-8468.

Public Works & Natural Resources will begin our annual flushing of the water lines April 22nd. We flush the lines to keep water quality at its highest level and to ensure that fire hydrants are operational. The benefits realized in water quality and fire protection far outweigh the comparatively small amount of water released during the flushing program. Citizens may notice low water pressure, discolored water or no water for short periods of time when flushing is taking place in their neighborhood. We recommend citizens limit water use, and particularly avoid using hot water when flushing is occurring in their immediate area. For more information please call 303-651-8468.
