Cause of Fire: Unknown

Area Vegetation: Grass and ponderosa pine

Acres Burned: Estimated 40-50 acres

System 1 water supply limited

Still working on water line replacement, so homes on system 1 have limited water supply.

Please refrain from excessive and outdoor watering as many members are experiencing ZERO water pressure.

Please report any water leakage.

SLPPOA Water News

We are presently working on the association water main. This should not require anyone to be without water. Units 1 and 3 will experience low water pressure at times of high usage. Please think of our neighbors and take it easy for the next few days. One of the fixes we are trying to accomplish is the lack of pressure regulation on the Hovenweep well. When this is installed we should be able to maintain more pressure control on this system.

Calypso fire under control

FYI, there was a lighting-caused fire started last night, south of Calypso lane in SLP. It is currently being controlled by FS crews, but it will be putting out alot of smoke today.

Roaming Dogs

This email is a reminder for folks to please fence in their dogs!

One of our local homeowners was recently vehemently barked at by a honey and white husky. This was not at all pleasant!

As it turns out this has happened on and off at various areas within SLP over the years.

Thank you!
