Repairs continue to be made on two of the three water lines supplying the Carbon Valley area which were damaged in last month’s flooding. The Central Weld County Water District has been working steadily on repairing the lines which were damaged when the St. Vrain River washed out a portion of Colorado Boulevard (CR 13) north of Firestone. In addition to the water lines, nine other utility crossings were also damaged in that area. Until repairs are complete, the town continues to operate on a limited water supply and water restrictions.

On Sept. 27, the CWCWD brought into service a 20-inch temporary bypass piping line to increase water supply to the Carbon Valley area. This temporary piping lies on top of a dam built by the CWCWD to divert water back to the St. Vrain River, as well as down a portion of Colorado Boulevard to connect the lines while repairs continue to the main water supply lines. With the temporary bypass piping line in service, Firestone revised its mandatory water restrictions for residential, commercial and HOA-owned properties.

As of Oct. 10, the CWCWD finished the replacement of the 36-inch main water line across the washed out portion of Colorado Boulevard. In the coming weeks, connections of the repaired line will need to be made to the vicinities of where the temporary piping was installed.

In addition to the repairs being made to the water supply lines, crews are working in synchronized efforts to make road repairs to Colorado Boulevard to expedite the reopening of that roadway.
