Prospect Mountain Water Project

#FFFFFF

The Town of Estes Park entered into an agreement to provide new water service to the former Prospect Mountain Water Company service area including new distribution piping and fire hydrants. The project is initially funded through a combination of grants and low-interest rate loans from the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development (USDA-RD). Benefited property owners are obligated to repay the low-interest rate loan portion of the funding over a 40-year period.

​​​​​​​Reclamation Neighborhood Water Project

#FFFFFF

The Water Division is looking forward to progressing with the next phase of the mainline replacement project in the Reclamation Neighborhood, which will replace the existing four-inch steel mainline with a 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. 

Final Design is being completed for the Reclamation Neighborhood Water Improvement Project, with completion anticipated for the end of 2022 and advertisement for bids in early 2023. Residents may notice some activity in the project area as contractors prepare estimates; however, construction work will not begin without advance resident notification. An informational meeting will be scheduled with residents before moving into the next construction phase. A rough, preliminary estimate for the start of construction is May of 2023.

Project updates and schedules will be posted on this page. For more information on this project, please contact Jacqui Wesley, Utilities Project Manager at 970-577-3611 or jwesley@estes.org
