  2. The District would once again like to warn its customers that they may experience lower than usual water pressure in their homes through the end of December.
    Denver Water is continuing to rehabilitate a large-diameter water main which supplies water to Platte Canyon for those areas southwest of the intersection of Ken Caryl and South Pierce Street. Ken Caryl to the north, South Pierce to east and West Fairview Drive (a diagonal) to the southwest. The contractor for the project had begun the work in mid-October with a goal of having the project completed by the end of November. Because of weather and other project complications the project is behind schedule.
    In order to perform this rehabilitation, the water conduit must be taken out of service and Denver Water will have to reroute water service through other conduits to some Platte Canyon customers. This will cause a reduction in the water pressure and water pressure will again be affected until the end of this month. 
    A notice from Denver Water will be in the mail today to 400 District customers informing them of delays with the project and the new anticipated completion date. To view the notice, click on picture to the right.
    The District apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and will be working closely with Denver Water personnel to restore normal operations as soon as possible.
    If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact Joe Sloan, Denver Water Public Affairs at 303-628-6320. You may also email Mr. Sloan directly at
