FINAL UPDATE – Water Line Repair Scheduled for 7/11/2018: Lower/mid Big Springs Drive Ponderosa Drive Big Springs Point East side of Lakeview Dr

Please be advised that the repair is complete in the Big Springs area.  Since water line repair work can stir up sediment within the distribution system, please RUN COLD WATER if you notice any discoloration (this discoloration is not a health hazard) for several minutes until it runs clear.  Do this before using it for laundry or using hot water.

The Town of Nederland will finish a SCHEDULED water line repair tomorrow July 11th. The project may continue until the morning of July 12th. This will require us to temporarily shut off your water service.
We apologize for any inconvenience and will restore service as soon as possible. We will let you know immediately when the water is turned back on.
After the work is complete, Town of Nederland Water Department will flush water mains in your area. Flushing may stir up sediment in the pipes and result in discolored and/or rusty water.
There are no known health hazards associated with discolored water. If discolored water is apparent, run several cold water taps at full force until the water clears. Avoid washing laundry or using hot water.
