While he hopes to have repairs completed this evening, he said to plan on 24 hours depending on what he finds.  We will post an update when there is something new to report. If you are not on the DW2 Metro email list, please send your email to dw2@mydurango.net to get on it.

Hydrant Flushing This Week - Tuesday, October 30, 2018

DW2 will be flushing hydrants this week - Oct 29-Nov2. We typically do this a bit around sewer cleaning as some sediment gets stirred up. However, due to the Lake Durango issue this fall regarding the lake turnover and taste/odor issues, our water operator will be flushing more water than usual to hopefully alleviate the situation.

Water Taste and Odor Update - Monday, October 29, 2018

Water Update:

LDWA and DW2 are working to fix the taste and odor water situation as soon as possible. The Lake Durango Water Authority (LDWA) manager stated that they have made some progress on treating the taste and odor and was told it is improving by customers closest to the treatment plant. Our water operator is starting hydrant flushing today. He did turn Lake Durango water off two weeks ago. So, our well water has been mixing in our tanks with the Lake Durango water which hopefully will also help the situation.  

To help prevent this situation in the future, LDWA has committed to contacting DW2 as soon as their manager is made aware of any problems like this so that our DW2 water operator can turn off our Lake Durango pump (when possible). LDWA has discussed additional treatment options regarding taste and odor at their last board meeting.

Thank you for your patience.
