Hillcrest Water Project Updater 4/17/2020

Project Update 4-17-2020

COVID-19

The Hillcrest project has been designated an essential infrastructure construction project that will continue forward during the shelter-in-place order issued by Gov. Jared Polis. Denver Water and MWH are taking all essential precautions to ensure we maintain recommended health and safety guidelines for our employees and the public.

Stockpile Update

Scrapers are still in use and we are on target to have the stockpiles removed by the end of April. Once the stockpile removal is complete, you should see a noticeable decrease in the amount of heavy machinery at the Hillcrest Site.

Happy Canyon Road Cleaning

We have shifted to using the East Gate entrance on Happy Canyon Road as our primary gate, which has caused an increase of dirt and debris on Happy Canyon Road. To keep the roadway clean, we are sweeping two times a week: Wednesday and Friday. We will sweep on additional days as needed.

Fencing & Landscaping

The installation of the new fence has been postponed due to manufacturing delays. The fence is now scheduled to arrive in mid-May. Landscaping is tentatively scheduled for early June, pending weather.

East Gate Entrance

Once the new fence installation is complete, we will construct a new access drive off of Happy Canyon Road. We anticipate this work will begin in early June. You will be notified of any impacts to roads or sidewalks in the next newsletter and via the social media platform Nextdoor.

Work Hours

We are continuing to work on Saturdays through spring. Personnel typically arrive at 7 a.m. and equipment use begins 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.

HOA Meeting

The Southmoor HOA meeting that was scheduled for April 23 at Thomas Jefferson High School has been rescheduled for Sept. 24. We will send out a reminder with confirmed time and location closer to this date.

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