Reclamation Neighborhood Water Project

Reclamation neighborhood water line upgrades will resume on October 12, 2020.

Water taps, line installation and repaving will require traffic control at intersections with US 36.

The Town of Estes Park Water Division will begin the third phase of water line upgrades in the Reclamation Neighborhood approximately Oct. 12. This will include new taps and water lines at the intersections of U.S. 36 with First, Second and Third Streets, as well as repaving of the work areas. This phase of the project is expected to be complete by late November, weather permitting.

Water main tapping and installation of new lines requires traffic control, which will move from one intersection to the next in approximately one-week intervals. Work will begin at the Fourth Street intersection the week of Oct. 12, and is scheduled to progress west to Third Street (Oct. 19), Second Street (Oct. 26) and First Street (Nov. 2). The Third through First Street intersections will require full closures near the intersections with U.S. 36. Access to all businesses and residences will be maintained through detours.

Water service to the area should not be impacted by the project. This is the third of six anticipated phases of the mainline replacement project in the Reclamation Neighborhood that will replace the existing four-inch steel mainline with new eight-inch ductile iron pipe and the addition of fire hydrants. This project will take place over the next few years and will include upgraded connections for each customer’s water service. As future phases are scheduled, the Water Division will contact property owners to discuss the timing and placement of the service line as well as the restoration of the disturbed area and landscaping.

Project updates and schedules will be posted on this page. For more information on this project, please contact Brenda Wyss, Water Division Administrative Assistant, at 970-577-3619 or bwyss@estes.org or Cliff Tedder, Water Distribution Supervisor at 970-577-3622 or ctedder@estes.org
