[ARCHIVED] Public Information for Sept. 15

Carbon Valley Public Information line is now closed. From 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., we will only post emergency messages to the website and social media. For emergencies, call 911. Regular updates will resume and the Public Information line will open at 7 a.m.

Evacuations for Sept. 15:
Update from Weld County: The Idaho Creek and River Valley Village neighborhoods in Weld County - located at the SW corner of I-25 and Highway 119 - are being evacuated again.

A Message from Firestone Mayor Chad Auer:

Yesterday, Sept. 14., Town Manager Wes LaVanchy and I surveyed damage around Firestone. I am pleased to report that, by enlarge, the towns infrastructure is in tact and looks to have weathered the storm. However, I do want to update you on a couple of problem areas.

First, Sable Ave (or CR 22) between CR 11 and the I-25 Frontage Road suffered significant damage and will remain closed until we get the road repaired. Our public works department has been mobilized and we hope to get this road open asap.

The next update concerns Colorado Blvd north of Firestone between CR 26 and Hwy 66. While the bridge remains in tact, the river washed out a significant portion of the road north of the bridge. Repairing this road could take weeks. Reconstruction has already begun.

I also wanted to let you know that Firestone has 3 water lines that supply the town. Two of the 3 have been compromised and are being repaired now. The third water line is in tact and providing Firestone with adequate water supply. While our chlorine levels remain above the recommended threshold, we decided to be safe rather than sorry and enacted a water boil advisory. Crews are working to restore the compromised water lines and we will update you on their progress appropriately. In an effort to conserve water, please refrain from outdoor watering such as car washing and please turn off your sprinkler systems for the time being.

Finally, I want to thank everyone who is helping the community as we make our way through this challenge. There are so many examples of neighbors helping neighbors and FIRESTONE staff members have been going above and beyond to keep your community as safe as possible. This is what makes Firestone such a fantastic community. Keep up the great work Firestone!
