From the City of Edgewater
The City Council of the City of Edgewater, Colorado, hereby gives notice that a public hearing shall be held at the Edgewater City Hall, 2401 Sheridan Blvd, Edgewater, Colorado, at 7:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, on November 6, 2014, concerning the 26th Avenue water line and lead line service replacement project (Project) and for informing citizens and soliciting public input, written or oral, regarding the Project and the Preliminary Engineering Report (PER). The report is being submitted to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to qualify for a State Revolving Fund Loan.
The purpose of this Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) is to describe the proposed water main and service line replacement for the City of Edgewater, Colorado (City). The City is considering replacing the 6” ductile iron (DIP) water main on 26th Avenue from Sheridan Boulevard to Pierce Street. There is approximately 5,260 linear feet of pipe, and only four isolation valves. Thus, in the event of a water main break, it is very difficult to isolate the break, and the City may lose a significant amount of water before the pipe is repaired. In addition, the pipe is approximately 50 years old, and is approaching its useful life. The City is also considering replacing the lead service lines on approximately 600 service connections. The City is currently in the process of identifying the exact number of lead service line that need to be replaced through a potholing program.
The PER estimated Cost of Service is $2,339,800.
Copies of the Preliminary Engineering Report are on file with the Edgewater City Clerk and are open to public inspection during regular business hours.
