Temporary Main In North Fish Creek Area Completed
Estes Park’s Water Division crews have completed the challenging construction of a temporary water main to restore water to affected properties in the North Fish Creek area. They are now taking meticulous care to clean and disinfect the line before water service is restored. The disinfection process takes about 24 hours and is followed by laboratory testing to confirm water potability. The final step is flushing the system. Given this careful process, the Town was expected to restore water to the outage area by Friday, October 11. Then it will begin focusing on design of the permanent solution.
The Water Division has worked long hours to make this repair and every day since the flooding. Their work ensured the Town’s water supply was never contaminated during the flooding and they continually test Town drinking water throughout the system to ensure its quality and safety.
