Y&K, Inc. has installed the 8-inch water main from 3rd to 5th Street on H Street. Y&K will start connecting temporary water lines into the new permanent water main this week, June 24-June 30, 2014. During the time that the water lines are hooked to the new main there will be temporary water shut offs. Y&K will hang door hangers on the front doors of homes and businesses in advance of the shut offs. Just before a shut off, there will be a Y&K employee that will notify the home in person. Water shut offs will last for a couple of hours on average during the transition. For homes that place their water meter inside, the water shut off will be shorter as it will not take as long to connect into the new water main. Meters placed in homes will also prevent meters freezing in the winter. There is no charge to place a meter in your home. Please contact Public Works Director Bob Salmi at 719-539-6257 if you would like to arrange to have your water meter placed inside of your home or business.
6th to 8th Street on H Street is still currently closed to thru traffic. However, residents have the option to park on that section of H Street for the time being until further notice.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this project.
