SLPPOA Water System 2 Update

Tanks are filling and equalizing. Pressure is holding. Every residence except one (Sorry, Mr. & Mrs. Jaramillo) should have normal flow restored going forward. The suspected problem with the gate valve, which was reported yesterday, turned out to be something much less drastic. It was a pressure relief valve that had been closed. Once opened, that problem was resolved. At some point in the short term, we will have to engage a contractor to excavate and replace the line where the leak is now suspected.

SLPPOA Water System 2 Better News

So, finally some good news: An isolation valve was installed on lower Cerro Pelado today and we were finally able to determine that the location of the leak is in that run below Jaramillo's residence.

SLPPOA System 2 Water Users

There has been some additional problems that have come up. As we were installing the isolation valve in the mainline at the junction of Los Griegos and Aspen Grove, I went up to check the water level in the tanks and found water running out from the bottom of the steel tank. We got that shut off. That was the afternoon a little before 1PM. Yesterday morning, when turning off the gate valve in the manhole at the booster pump, and later that afternoon, turning it back on, I never heard the typical "whoosh" of water that should accompany it.

SLPPOA Water Sys 2 Maintenance Plan for this Week

All residents on System 2 please be advised that an isolation valve will be placed this Wednesday; at the junction of Los Griegos & Aspen Grove. You may have to detour to get home & water pressure may be low on Thu AM as the tank recovers. So it would be a good idea to prepare with 1-2 five gallon buckets Wed night.

Thanks again for your patience.

Road Work

At 8AM on Thursday, August 8th, a crew will be excavating two sections of lower Los Griegos Road. This work is being done to place isolation valves in the main water line to more effectively deal with the leak which has been disrupting service in System 2 for the past week.

SLPPOA Water Sys 2 Update

Sorry for the delay in any updates for our recent Sys 2 water supply problems. I want to make an effort to let you know where have we have been, where we think we are going, and answer some of the questions that have been popping up.

WHERE HAVE WE BEEN OR WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING?

SLPPOA SYS 2 Water Turn on Time

Shawn Weary will turn on the lower part of Los Griegos Tuesday at 5:15 to 5:30 am for 3-4 hours depending on the on the water storage level.

SLPPOA Water System 2 Update

It is becoming necessary (probably for the next week or so) to limit the water on that lower portion of Los Griegos on a daily basis. The weekend schedule will be something like :

Evening water should be available 5-9 pm
Morning water should be available 8-11 am

Actions taken or planned by SLP Volunteers:

SLPPOA Water System 2 Update for 8/1/2019

This evening our plan was to get some water to everyone.

We were able to fill our storage tanks overnight and provide water for the upper Los Griegos addressed properties this morning. This afternoon we isolated and charged the lower Los Griegos pipeline with Aspen Grove and Outliers branches turned off, constantly monitoring our storage tank levels. However, the location and the cause of our leak or leaks is still unknown. Further diagnostics will continue.

Notification on Sys 2 Water Outage

In order to diagnose our struggle to recharge the subject water system it was necessary to isolate the bottom half of Sys 2. We immediately began to build water supply and pressure to those members who have been without water for two days. By this process of elimination, we have determined there must be a large leak on this lower portion of Los Griegos. The location and the cause of this leak or leaks is unknown. Further diagnostics are under consideration.
