7/22/21 4:00 pm For those customers in Zone 3 who have been affected by the Parmalee Elementary water connection project today, the connection was completed at 4:00 and IHWD Operations will be turning the water back on shortly. It may take up to an hour for the system to pressurize. We expect customers to have water by around 5:00 pm.
12:30 pm Operations is working on isolating a valve so the disinfection work can be completed. The estimated time that water will be back on is 3:00 pm today. If you are in need of drinking water, please bring a clean container to the District office for fill up.
This morning, 7/22, Zone 3 customers may briefly experience interrupted water service as the Indian Hills Water District assists in disinfecting the Parmalee Elementary school fire service line addition. Although it is unlikely, we may have to isolate certain valves to reach our required chlorine residual. We will be working proactively to ensure that if there is a loss of service that it will be restored expeditiously. Please reach out if you have any questions.
7/16/2021 The Indian Hills Water District is currently composing a strategic plan to address all water quality comments and/or concerns. We are asking for input if you are experiencing any problems, such as taste, odor, low pressure, etc., in order for us to most efficiently and effectively prioritize addressing and resolving any and all issues.
5/25/2021 - Effective 5/18/2021 Drought conditions for Jeffco and Indian Hills have been upgraded and this area is no longer experiencing drought conditions. The IHWD Drought/Conservation guidelines are removed at this time while the District will continue to monitor drought conditions in Indian Hills, Jefferson County, and Colorado. IHWD encourages a Culture of Conservation of our water resources, but for the time-being, customers can water flowers and small gardens on their property.

HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE
Operations will be performing hydrant flushing and flow testing in Zone 3 today, Monday 5/17/21 beginning at 1:00 pm. We are hoping to be done with Zone 3 hydrants by Tuesday, but Wednesday at the latest.
The District must flush out the main water lines once a year to remove any sediment. This keeps our water clean and safe. Flushing may cause cloudy or slightly discolored water along with increased air bubbles while it is being performed. If your water is cloudy, running the water at your largest faucet will clear it. Although the water is very safe to use, the District suggests that laundry should not be done until the water is clear as it might result in discoloration.
You may not have noticed discolored water during flushing in past years. We have reviewed and updated our flushing plan and the chance you will notice discoloration this year is increased.
