In the months following the flood of September 2013, several of our customers have noticed changes in the characteristics of their household water. The changes are observed as an increase of spots on dishes, white deposits on faucets and reduction of suds with soap and other laundry products. These issues are symptoms of hard water. Flood damage to our water intake facilities in Left Hand Canyon forced us to use water stored in two reservoirs. This stored water has a higher mineral content than our usual creek flow source. While hard water may cause some of the problems noted above, it presents no health issues and is safe for all domestic uses. Most people do not notice a difference in the appearance, taste or odor of water at this level of hardness. Work is underway to restore our intake facilities which will be completed this spring. With the return of our “normal” water supply we expect the water hardness to return to pre-flood levels. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
The Left Hand Water District Board of Directors has approved the Regular Meeting Schedule for 2014. Unless otherwise approved, the standing meeting time is at 9:00 AM on the third Thursday of each month. For 2014, the November and December Board meetings will be held on the second Thursday. The entire schedule, along with the notice containing the regular agenda, can be found on our Board of Directors page.
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 As of November 13, 2013, the prohibition on outdoor use is rescinded.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.
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.
