July 20 News Release: First phase of Reclamation neighborhood water line upgrades begins July 31; Water taps, line installation and repaving will require traffic control at intersections with Highway 7

In 2017, the Water Division of the Town of Estes Park anticipates beginning the first of six engineered phases of the mainline replacement project in the Bureau of Reclamation Neighborhood that will replace the existing 4” steel mainline with new 8” ductile iron pipe and feature the addition of fire hydrants. All work will be completed at the expense of the Water Division. This is an ambitious project that will take place over the span of the next few years.

As the Water Division prepares to connect the properties in each phase, individual homeowners will be contacted ahead of time to discuss the placement of the service line as well as the restoration of the disturbed area and landscaping. 

No significant water outages are anticipated as the project moves forward; however, continued patience will be appreciated as traffic disruptions can be expected.

As plans are ready to be implemented, updates will posted on this page.

Please contact the Water Division with any questions you may have.

The Town of Estes Park looks forward to working together with the community to achieve the improved reliability of the water system as well as increased fire protection and better water quality through the completion of this project.
