WARNING ... Expect Water Outages on System 1

The Aspen 5 HP well, larger of our two wells on System 1, is currently off line and not producing any water. Troubleshooting by myself and Mark Stanley has discovered a defective well control box.

Hovenweep, our smaller 2 HP well, is running full time but is not strong enough to supply all our System 1 water needs.

A well company has been called. At this time we have no expected time of repair to be completed.

Please conserve all the water you can.

Water System 2 Planned Outage a Success ... so far!

Thanks to all of you on Water System 2 for your cooperation and patience. It was a long but successful Saturday.

The PRV (Pressure Regulator Valve) and two gate valves were removed and new ones installed inside a confined space, each 70-100 lbs. The parts had to fit, bolted together within an exact space, end-to-end with gaskets between each flange. The PRV was in very bad shape being clogged with much pumice type sand.

Water System 2 Planned Outage SATURDAY! *** RESCHEDULED ***

Our key player with the NMRWA (New Mexico Rural Water Association) has asked us to reschedule. With moisture and colder weather predicted to come in next week, the SLPPOA President Paul Lisko & I agree to try for SATURDAY.

The urgency of this repair is strong due to the circumstances (the condition of the PRV and a recently discovered leak). Please stay tuned.
