Change in Erie’s Raw Water Source Due to Summer Flow
Erie Residents May Notice Change in Taste to Their Water
ERIE, CO – As part of routine annual operations during summer months, the Town of Erie Water Treatment Facility is using some of its alternate source water reservoirs to augment raw water sources. Due to this temporary source water change, residents may notice a change in taste to their water which is due to differences in water chemistry between the Town’s various raw water sources.
The Town of Erie Department of Public Works would like to assure the public that though they may notice a change in the taste of their water, the Town’s water continues to meet State water quality requirements and remains safe to drink.
BACKGROUND: The Town of Erie receives a majority of its raw water from the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District’s southern water supply pipeline during winter months. During the summer months when demand and flows increase, the Town of Erie uses additional water supplies in Erie’s reservoir system, including Erie’s new bypass pipeline from Boulder Reservoir completed in 2015. These additional water supplies supplement the flow through the southern pipeline during times of higher demand.
