Prospect Mountain Water Project

The Town now owns the Prospect Mountain Water Company and all former customers of Prospect Mountain Water are now Town water customers.

The plan is to replace all water mains in the area formerly served by Prospect Mountain Water Company, however this will be a major undertaking and lengthy process. The project is currently entering the design and engineering phase. The Water Division is working with water modelers to create the best design for the system.

It is anticipated that there will be the need to obtain utility easements from certain residents once the design is finalized.

The Town will not be completing the work in-house. This means that once the design phase is complete, the project will be put out for bid to contractors. After the contract has been awarded, the Town will be able to provide more information on when ground will be broken on the project and proposed timelines for the progression of the work.

The additional USDA loan replacement charge required of all properties formerly with Prospect Mountain Water Company will not be billed until the project is complete and closed out with the USDA.

Informational updates will be provided on this page as soon as they become available. If you have any questions, please contact Brenda Wyss, Water Division Administrative Assistant, at 970-577-3619 or bwyss@estes.org.
