Contracts Awarded for 2021 Capital Improvement Projects

Three water main replacement projects are scheduled for construction in the summer of 2021.

On March 26, the Board of Directors approved the construction contract for the following three water main replacement projects. The contract was awarded to Levi Contractors, Inc. in the amount of $1,095,832. Levi Contractors, Inc. has worked for the District on several previous water main replacement projects. More updates will follow on these projects once the District receives the construction schedule from the contractor.

Capital Improvement Projects Scheduled for 2020:

All of the 2021 projects involve replacing cast iron pipe that has advanced levels of electrolysis-caused corrosion.

Two of the three projects are located within the Columbine Hills Subdivision, which contains some of the oldest water mains in the District. The pipe scheduled for replacement was installed in 1960 and was not protected from corrosive soils, which is the current practice. The third project is located in the Leawood Subdivision, where a substantial amount of older cast iron pipe is also located. Combined, eight breaks have occurred on these three water mains, including four that occurred in 2019.

Due to the rapidly changing state and local policies regarding COVID-19, the District will not conduct in-person Informational Pop-Ups this construction season. Communication with residents in the affected subdivisions will be handled via mail, social media, or door-to-door interaction.

If you have questions or concerns pertaining to District projects, please call the main office number at 303-979-2333.
