Water System Update - 5-20-2021
You may have noticed crews onsite near the water treatment plant these past few weeks. They have installed brackets along the cliff to support the temporary water line we have been using post freeze.
Today, the crews are moving the temporary water line into the new brackets so the line will be more secure along the cliff. They will need to shut off the water intake from the lake to the plant during this process. Estimated time is one to two days.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have raised the level of drinking water in the tanks to ensure there is no interruption of service to customers.
We will provide additional updates throughout this process and the installation of the new raw water line, which will begin soon.
Water System Update - 3-3-2021
The Water Plant is now able to run with automation and no longer requires the manual process. We are still using the temporary raw water line and looking at ways to best build supports for the line.
As a reminder, please be mindful of water consumption until we are able to get the main raw water line back in operation. We do not have an ETA yet, however, the engineers and the operators are developing the best options.
Water System Update - 3-2-2021
The electrician for the control panel is back onsite this week to repair the automation function of the temporary water line. We will communicate once the automation is functional. Please continue to be mindful of your water use as we are still using our temporary line in manual mode.
We would like to thank the POA representatives and our customers for their continued support in circulating the District's IRIS alerts to neighbors who may not have signed up for the IRIS communication program.
To sign up for IRIS communication alerts, please email [email protected]. Please include your first and last name, your property address, your email and phone number. You are allowed up to 2 emails and 3 phone numbers.
A reminder from Waste Connections. Due to the suspended services during the week of the freeze, Waste Connections is allowing customers to place additional bags and bundles at the curb for two more weeks. Bundles must weigh less than 40lbs and be cut down to 3' in length (bundles tied with twine) and set on street next to your cart. If you have extra trash, please use this opportunity to get it collected.

Due to continued severe winter weather and road conditions, our solid waste collection services will be suspended for the remainder the week. We will resume operations, according to regular service schedules on Monday, February 22nd.
Due to the suspended services this week, we expect there to be many households with needs for extra service for the next 2-3 weeks. We will plan to collect additional bags and bundles that are placed at the curb, above the normal set out limitations.
We appreciate everyone’s patience as we navigate our way back to safe and normal operating conditions.
Our commitment remains to the health and safety of all people – our customers, our employees, and community members.
