One Capital Project Scheduled for 2023

The following water main replacement project currently in the design phase.

S. Depew Street  This project will replace 1,785 feet of 8″ cast iron pipe with 8″ PVC pipe in S. Depew Street from W. Ken Caryl Ave to W. Canyon Trail. This project is located within the Columbine Hills Subdivision, which contains some of the oldest water mains in the District.

The District’s water distribution system continues to require significant attention as portions of the system approach the end of its reliable, useful life. It is extremely important that the District maintain a proactive facility maintenance program and comprehensive long-range capital improvement program to detect and repair all District owned infrastructure as necessary.

Each year, the District updates its Capital Master Plan to be proactive in addressing infrastructure needs by identifying, prioritizing and scheduling water and wastewater rehabilitation and replacement projects over the next ten years. System modifications are prioritized so the facilities most in need of repair are replaced or rehabilitated in an appropriate timeframe. The goal is to minimize operation and repair expenses by avoiding costly unscheduled repair, replacement, and rehabilitation of deteriorating facilities. Most importantly, an aggressive capital rehabilitation and replacement program helps avoid system deterioration, disruption, and potential safety, health and property damage impacts.

Updates on the 2023 water main project will follow once the plans are finalized and the contract bid is awarded.
