Water savings goal met
Congratulations and thank you! Together we met the 2013 community water-savings goal of 5.8 billion gallons
(compared to 2012). This would not be possible without your commitment to using water wisely. Your actions will help ensure that we continue to have enough water to protect the health and safety of our community. Please keep in mind water restrictions (two days a week) and tiered water pricing is still in effect through Dec. 31.
Although this year's goal has been met, we encourage you to continue using only what is needed. You can do that by taking steps this fall to winterize your landscape and give it a better chance of rebounding next spring.
| Drought mitigation project beginning soon
Beginning mid-September and continuing for the next several weeks, we'll be working on a drought mitigation project to install water pipe on Fillmore Street, just west of Interstate 25. When complete, the $8 million project will help enable us to maximize our water rights in Monument Creek, deliver an additional eight million gallons of water a day to our treatment plant, and further insulate customers from existing and future droughts.
Lane restrictions will be in effect for the impacted portion of Fillmore during construction. Heading west on Fillmore, traffic will be reduced to two through lanes, while eastbound traffic will be reduced to one through lane. Click here to learn more about the project and traffic impacts.
What initially sounds like a twisted version of Lollapalooza or a mishap at our wastewater plant is in reality a really awesome community event.
At Poopalaooza, you can score some organic manure, just in time for fall landscaping projects. All we ask for is a donation to Project COPE
, which helps our customers facing utilities disconnection with bill payment assistance.
