Many Left Hand Water District customers may be affected by the Xcel Energy outage in the Niwot/Gunbarrel area. Any customers whose homes or buildings do not have heat should take precautions to make sure pipes don’t freeze: leave a faucet running slightly and leave cabinet and crawl space doors open. Please direct any questions related to the natural gas outage to Xcel Energy.
DUE TO THE WEATHER, THIS WORK HAS BEEN POSTPONED. THIS OUTAGE WILL LIKELY OCCUR SOMETIME THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 9TH. WHEN THE ACTUAL DATE IS KNOWN UPDATED INFORMATION WILL BE POSTED.
On Wednesday, December 4, 2013, the District will have a planned water outage that will affect homes along Oxford Road between Ouray and 41st Street. We are replacing a water line that was damaged in the September flood and have to make a tie-in to the new line. We anticipate service will be interrupted starting from approximately 9am, through mid-afternoon. If for any reason the work cannot be completed on Monday, the backup date will be Thursday, December 5th. If you have any questions please contact our office at 303-530-4200.
The Left Hand Water District has completed a project that is allowing raw water to be delivered from Left Hand Valley Reservoir. The water available in the reservoir will be sufficient to provide treated water to District customers through the winter of 2013. As a result, the District has downgraded its drought mitigation level from Stage 4 (Extreme) to Stage 1 (Mild). As of November 13, 2013, the prohibition on outdoor use is rescinded. Customers are requested to voluntarily limit irrigation of landscaped areas to two days per week, and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.
The proposed 2014 budget will be considered at the regular monthly meeting of the District’s Board of Directors on December 19, 2013. Please see the Public Notice of Proposed 2014 Budget and Hearing for more details.
October 30, 2013: Boulder County has repaired Nimbus Road from N. 73rd Street, and the road is open from that direction to our temporary drive! Please note, we do still have currently have a temporary gravel drive to our office – it is just west of the area where our old driveway washed out, at the entrance to the Niwot ballfields (the Biff Warren Baseball Complex). Also, the dropbox at our office driveway has not been replaced, so the only dropbox location available is still in the Town of Niwot, across from the Post Office, in the bank parking lot next to the drive-up.
We have fielded questions regarding the emergency alerts (“reverse-911″) calls that were made to notify residents of the boil water advisory during the flooding emergency. Those notifications are managed by Boulder and Weld Counties. Residents can manage their contact information with the emergency management notification systems by clicking the following links: Boulder County Emergency Mass Notification System ; Weld County Emergency Mass Notification System ; City and County of Broomfield Emergency Mass Notification System.
