What: Denver Water is starting a water main replacement project in the Congress Park neighborhood beginning this weekend. Crews will be replacing 330 linear feet of aging water mains underneath the road. There are no suspected lead service lines impacted as part of this project.
When: Work will begin this weekend and is expected to last approximately one week. We will make every attempt to complete this project within the stated timeframe; however, as with any construction project, unforeseen circumstances, such as weather conditions, material shortages and crew availability may extend the completion of work. Emergency work may also take priority. Working hours are typically 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.
Where: East 8th Avenue between Columbine and Elizabeth streets.
Project communications: The attached mailer was sent out to residents in the neighborhood. Reminder door hangers are also delivered to impacted properties closer to the start of construction and before any planned water outages. In addition, Denver Water will provide periodic updates throughout the project via the social media platform Nextdoor. If neighbors have questions about the project, they should contact Denver Water Customer Care at 303-893-2444*.
