Thank you to the Manitou Springs community for your continued patience as we conducted this important work. The project helps ensure safety of your community. We've now replaced the most critical sections of the 83-year-old, 30-inch pipeline in your community, including repaving the impacted sections of roadways.
Sections of a large, 83-year-old water pipeline running through Manitou Springs needed replacement. As pipes age, line breaks are more common.
The pipeline carries water from Pikes Peak reservoirs to the Mesa Water Treatment Plant. In due diligence to our pipeline neighbors and our customers, it was prudent to replace the identified sections in advance of the Mesa Water Treatment Plant 2018 upgrade.
Pipeline construction is scheduled was completed in two segments beneath El Paso Boulevard in Manitou Springs, beginning in October 2017 and continued through early May 2018.
