Water Main Replacement Begins April 15

Beginning Monday, April 15, Diamond Contracting will begin replacement of the failing watermain on Washington Avenue from 6th Street to 2nd Street. That day, City of Golden Utilities Division employees will begin connecting residents to a temporary water supply system. This system consists of 2” PVC pipe laid on the surface with ¾” PVC connections to meter pits. Residences without meter pits or piping that cannot be adaped to this solution will have hoses run to outside hose spigots.

During the main replacement, traffic impacts will be similar to what has been occurring with the streetscape. Residents may have limited access during working hours (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.), but our contractor will work with residents if emergency access is required.

There will be short water outages as service lines and existing watermains are connected but Diamond will notify any affected customers the day before by door hanger notices. We expect this project to take approximately four (4) weeks and are currently planning to complete the watermain installation by the second week of May.

If freezing temperatures are predicted overnight, please leave a faucet trickling to prevent freezing of the piping. Water used at residences affected by the project will not be metered during replacement of the watermain so you may see a smaller than normal water bill.
