Rockwell Water Main Upgrade Project

The Town of Estes Park's Water Division will begin upgrades to a water main downtown in mid-October. The project will be completed in phases to occur through January 2020, tentatively, causing rolling closures of parking areas and traffic lanes along Rockwell Street, within the Post Office parking lot, Ivy Street and West Riverside Drive. The water main upgrades are necessary to increase fire protection capacity to the core of downtown, including installation of three new hydrants. The upgraded main will also provide better flow for water customers located on the north end of the distribution system. All dates and locations are weather-permitting and subject to change. Updates will be added to this page as they become available. Please contact Brenda Wyss, Water Division Administrative Assistant, at 970-577-3619 or bwyss@estes.org to address any further questions.

2/27/2020 - UPDATE - All of the new main line has been installed and is in the process of being tested. In April, service lines will be completed to affected properties. Thereafter, concrete work and street repair will be scheduled.

Reclamation Neighborhood Water Project

The Town of Estes Park Water Division worked on the second phase of the Reclamation neighborhood water line replacement project in October of 2018. This phase consisted of the installation of new water mains on Fifth Street and Fourth Street. The Division was unable to complete the portion along Highway 36 from Fourth Street through First Street. The completion of this phase of the project will resume when staffing constraints, permitting and weather allow. 

Neighborhood residents have been contacted via letter. No significant water outages are anticipated in the neighborhood. Staff will communicate directly with residents about any property-specific impacts.

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
