  1. 9/29/2016 COLUMBINE WEST RESIDENTS TO EXPERIENCE LOWER THAN NORMAL WATER PRESSURE DUE TO REHABILITATION OF DISTRICT PUMP STATION
  2. Low water pressure ahead

     

    Each year, the District performs upgrades and improvements to its water distribution system ensuring optimal operation and delivery of high quality water to its customers. This year is no exception, thus, rehabilitation of the Scott J. Morse Pump Station (formerly the Columbine West Pump Station - see sidebar below) located on West Ken Caryl Avenue just east of South Zephyr Court will begin October 3. During this rehabilitation the District will be replacing the pumps, motors, controls, and piping in the 45-year old facility. Rehabilitation work is tentatively scheduled to conclude March 31, 2017.

     

     

    The pump station provides peak water flow and fire flow capability to 330 homes in the Columbine West Subdivision located mostly between South Pierce Street, West Coal Mine Avenue, South Wadsworth Boulevard, and West Ken Caryl Avenue. As a result of the rehabilitation of the pump station, some Columbine West residents will experience reduced water pressure for the duration of the project.

    The District apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates your understanding during the rehabilitation project. Platte Canyon and its staff strive to provide safe and reliable water service to their customers and this project is necessary to continue that objective.
