Big Springs Drive Paving Closures, Sept. 13th – Sept. 16th

On Monday, September 13th Nederland Public Works will be beginning paving operations on Big Spring Drive. The Department expects this operation to take 4 days and complete paving by end of day Thursday, September 16th. Hours of operation will be from 7am to 6pm.

Because of limited staffing and to ensure greater flexibility only one way traffic on Big Springs Drive will be allowed. Traffic will only be allowed to travel east or into Big Springs Drive during this work and will be reopened during after-hours construction. Residents are asked to exit Big Springs subdivision via Peak View Drive.

Public Works asks for your patience during this time. This work is dependent on weather and could encounter possible delays. Delays to travelers are also possible during work hours and it is advised to use the alternate Peak View Drive route for both directions. Please email for further inquiries. We appreciate your cooperation.

Forest Service lifts fire restrictions on Northern Front Range

From the USDA

FORT COLLINS, Colo., (August 9, 2021)?– Beginning Tuesday, August 10, the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grasslands will lift fire restrictions within Clear Creek, Boulder, and Canyon Lakes Ranger District and also the Pawnee National Grassland.  National Forest managers have coordinated with our partners to make this decision but warn that fuels can dry out rapidly and restrictions may again be needed in the future.

Fire danger has been moderated due to the continued monsoonal moisture, across the northern front range.  There is still some risk from wildfire and conditions will vary by location.  Caution and compliance with fire safety across the forest is critical.  Stage 2 Fire Restrictions will remain on the Sulphur Ranger District within Grand County, Colorado at this time.

“We’ve seen increased rains and in coordination with other land managers, we’re cautiously lifting fire restrictions on the Front Range.  Please use extreme caution with campfires as always.  Never leave them unattended and make sure the ashes are cold before you leave” said Forest Supervisor, Monte Williams.

Help prevent wildfires and become a steward of public lands by checking the official local source for the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests at?

Hydrant Flushing In Sunnyside

The Utilities Staff will be flushing hydrants in the Sunnyside neighborhood on August 11th, 17th, and 18th. We flush hydrants annually to help maintain the best water quality possible.

During this time, residents may notice a slight decrease in water pressure or discoloration of water.  Water discoloration results from temporary disturbances of the normal water flow within our piping network. These short-term changes in flow can stir up naturally occurring minerals and sediment that settle within the water mains. The objective of the water main/hydrant flushing program is to remove these accumulated sediments from our pipes by flushing the water out of the fire hydrants.

If water discoloration does occur, customers should try to refrain from using hot water and run their cold-water faucets ONLY until the water appears clear.

If you should have any questions or concerns during this time, please contact the Utilities Department at 303.258.3088.

Thank you for your cooperation during this important water quality process.
