Project Update 3-16-2020

Stockpile Update

MWH brought in an additional scraper to assist with expediting the removal of the stockpiles. MWH expects to have the removal completed by the end of spring.

East Gate Entrance

The front gate to the property on Happy Canyon Road has resumed operation and there will be additional construction traffic use through this entrance. Street sweeping to remove mud and debris from the roadway is regularly scheduled on Wednesdays and Fridays. Additional street sweeping will be completed as needed.


Weather permitting, landscaping will begin in May.


We will be replacing the fence along Happy Canyon Road starting on March 16. During this time, temporary chain link fencing will be in place near the sidewalk. The sidewalk will remain open during construction activity. We anticipate permanent fence will be installed in April.

Completion Timeline

As demolition and construction of the new pump station nears completion this summer, we anticipate less noise and dust throughout the site. The entire project is expected to be completed in early 2022.

HOA Meeting

MWH and Denver Water is planning to attend the Southmoor HOA meeting at Thomas Jefferson High School on April 23, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. We will provide an update and answer project related questions from the community.

Work Hours

We continue to work on Saturdays through the spring, with personnel arriving at 7 a.m. and equipment use beginning at 8 a.m. We do not anticipate working any Sundays for the foreseeable future.

Weekday working hours remain 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We appreciate your continued patience and understanding while we work to upgrade this important part of your water distribution system.
