On February 8, 2022, the District and the City of Longmont will be testing a new interconnect between our two water systems. The interconnect will allow one system to supply water to the other during declared emergencies and provide redundancy and resiliency for customers in both systems. We will be testing pumps near the intersection of 95th Street and Plateau Road today.
Customers in the immediate vicinity may notice slight pressure fluctuations or water discoloration during testing. The discoloration is usually rust from aging pipes. It is not harmful, but can be aesthetically displeasing. Flushing your cold water tap should clear the water.
