  • Any unplanned water outages are considered emergencies and will be repaired as soon as possible.
  • Construction may cause temporary cloudy, discolored water or lower than usual pressure. If you experience this, please run cold water for up to 15 minutes. If water doesn't clear, please call 311 and say or select 'water emergency' for assistance.
  • Photo book of water and wastewater construction
  • Lane closures may be required daily in coordination with CDOT.
