2014 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS

Replacement of Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) on Steamboat Boulevard at Clubhouse Drive

During the summer of 2014, the District will be replacing components of the pressure reducing valve vault (PRV) on Steamboat Boulevard at Clubhouse Drive. The District's twenty PRV's allow water to flow from higher zones to lower zones in the District; they also reduce the pressure in the water so that it is suitable for domestic plumbing fixtures and appliances in the lower zone. In case of a fire emergency, PRV’s will allow high volumes of water to flow into the lower zone to meet the high volume demand for fire fighting.

Christie Storage Tank Supply Main and Overflow Pipe

The District will be installing a new supply main for the Christie Storage Tank. This new water main will improve fireflow supplies for the north Ski Trail Lane neighborhood and provide system redundancy for this critical storage facility. A second pipe will also be installed to direct any overflows from this tank to a natural drainage.

If you have questions, please call Mount Werner Water (970) 879-2424.


2014 Irrigation Season

The Steamboat Community Water Providers Group (City of SS, Mt. Werner Water, Steamboat II, Tree Haus) have agreed that current conditions and the current climate outlook does not warrant water restrictions at this time.

We ask that you continue to use your best judgment when watering.  Potable water shall be used for beneficial purposes and should not be wasted. The following Stage 1 guidelines are in place at all times:
         - No outdoor watering between 10AM and– 6PM.
         - When irrigating with a hose, use spring-loaded nozzle; no free-running hoses.
         - Discourage tree-planting and the seeding or sodding of new lawns from June15th through August 31st.
        - Encourage the use of native grasses and shrubs or drought-tolerant species on new or re-developing properties.
        - Discourage water-intensive landscapes.
        - Encourage cutting lawn grass no shorter than 3 inches to reduce soil moisture loss and to promote deeper roots.
        - Limit the filling of swimming pools to one per year, unless draining for repairs is necessary.

REMEMBER household summer water use can be three times higher than winter use.
       - Most of this increase is lawn sprinkling.
       - Most homeowners over-water their lawns.
       - Check irrigation systems for leaks.
       - Cash rebates are still available for irrigation system controllers and efficient sprinkler heads.

Please contact Mount Werner Water at 970-879-2424 with any questions.
