Boil Water Rescind

After a Water Main Breaks

Sequence of work

• Our crews isolate the pipe by shutting off valves and temporarily placing the water supply out-of-service for the time necessary to make the repairs
• After repair or replacement of the broken pipe, it is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and flushed prior to being reconnected to the system

After the crews have gone
Please be aware of the following-
• New pipe, like any new container, can produce a new pipe taste and/or odor. This is not uncommon and will usually go away after a while. It is not in any way harmful, only aesthetically displeasing.

PUBLIC NOTICE
DISTRICT OFFICE CLOSED TO OUTSIDE VISITORS

The Baca Grande Water and Sanitation District has been monitoring recent events associated with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our area and we have taken extra precautions to keep our employees and our community healthy and safe. To that end, we have closed our offices to the public until further notice in order to limit potential employee exposure to the current pandemic.

Please continue to call (719) 256-4310 with any service and billing questions or if you have a water or sanitation service emergency.

We appreciate your patience during this challenging time.

DO NOT FLUSH!

Here are a few recommendations to consider regarding the wastewater treatment plant:

Please note: Some wipes are labeled “flushable” but should not be flushed down your toilet. These can
cause blockages in your sewer pipes and cause wastewater to back up into your house causing additional
hygiene issues and potentially structural water damage.

COVER YOUR FLUSH!
Always avoid putting these items down a drain...

SAFER AT HOME BEGINS

While you were away...
Flush Stagnant Lines for Consumption
If your home or facility has been vacant for a significant length of time, we recommend flushing your water lines before you use the water for consumption. Turning on your faucets for several minutes removes the older stagnant water from your lines and brings in fresh water. Run the water until you feel a significant drop in temperature to ensure you are getting fresh water from our distribution system.
