Loveland urges residents to conserve water as homes are evacuated

LOVELAND, Colo. — Despite the flooding and additional rain in the area, Loveland’s water, wastewater and power facilities remained fully operational Sunday.

Loveland has not been placed under any boiling restrictions, but city officials say it’s important to conserve water and to turn off all irrigation systems.

Loveland Water and Power continues to have four staff members testing and sampling throughout the city.

Because the Big Thompson River widened, the river eroded the earth next to Loveland’s 36-inch diameter main transmission line that brings treated water into town. Officials said they have isolated the main line Sunday.
If you have any water or power concerns, you are asked to call 970.962.3000, or check for web updates at http://www.cityofloveland.org/index.aspx?page=166.
