Town issues letter requiring backflow devices - If you are a business owner or have multiple residential units connected to the same water tap, you likely received a letter from the Town of Collbran requiring you install a backflow device. The Town would like to clarify that it is the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment that is requiring the backflow devices be installed, but they make us the Town responsible for ensuring that the devices get installed. We are also not alone. Communities all across Colorado are being faced with this same mandate from the State. Town Staff is available to assist in identifying the best solution for your property as you figure out how to meet this state mandated requirement. We greatly appreciate everyone’s cooperation in getting the backflow devices installed. If you have questions, please let us know. You can reach Town Hall at 970-487-3751.
