Jamestown Water Treatment Plant Update
Saturday, April 18, 2015

The Town’s water treatment plant has been experiencing operational challenges as a result of the change in the watershed since the flood. In addition, the pre-treatment infrastructure is still under construction and the new sand filters are not as biologically mature. This has resulted in a higher filter effluent (treated water) turbidity than in previous years. Turbidity is cloudiness or haziness of a fluid caused by large numbers of individual particles that are generally invisible to the naked eye, similar to smoke in air. The measurement of turbidity is a key test of water quality. It is important because turbidity can shield microorganisms from disinfection and used as an indicator for particle removal. The State regulation is < 1.5 NTU.

The water treatment plant operators and the Town’s water engineer are actively working to maintain safe drinking water and adequate water supplies through these challenges. The Town’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) is to take the filters offline as they approach 1.0 NTU. So as the effluent turbidity began to approach 1.0 NTU some immediate precautionary steps were taken: the filters were taken offline, cleaned and allowed to ripen for 2 weeks. During this time water was trucked in from Boulder.

The filters were then put back online after the Community Meeting on Tuesday evening. Since the effluent turbidity remains high, the water plant operators and the Town’s water engineer developed intermediate precautionary steps for when the turbidity is ≥ 1.0 NTU and < 1.5 NTU. These steps include: increasing residual chlorine disinfection levels from 1.2 mg/L to 2 mg/L (the State limit is 4 mg/L) to ensure inactivation of giardia, Ecoli and viruses. Post-filtration filter cartridges have been added to ensure removal of cryptosporidium.

Because it is unknown how long these operational changes will remain, the water treatment plant operators and the Town’s water engineer are working closely with the State regulating agency, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), to find long-term solutions to these challenges. These include: bringing the pre-treatment infrastructure (the roughing filter) online, and implementing strategies to enhance particle removal and the development of the biological filter layer (schmutzdecke).

Since the water treatment plant was put online on Tuesday evening, the effluent turbidity has remained within regulatory requirements. However it has increased over the past few days, and is approaching the regulatory limit of 1.49 NTU. As turbidity was above 1.0 NTU when the water treatment plant was put back into service, the proactive treatment measures discussed above (and at the Community Meeting) were implemented. If regulatory thresholds for turbidity are exceeded, you will be notified, and the water system will be put on a boil water advisory.

The water system staff are working hard to address the ongoing operational challenges and to replenish water storage supplies. Please continue to conserve water until further notice to allow the storage tanks to refill.

Thank you for your patience and support.

Moved 2 separate basketball-sized rocks off of James Canyon, uphill-side.

There will likely be more; Be careful, especially going around blind curves.

Drivers Be Aware:

West of the 4 mile marker on LHC there is a large pond/puddle on both lanes of the road. Please drive very carefully, especially at night when it may freeze.

This is the kind of snow that causes power outages around here. Be prepared.... charge your devices, have candles and headlamps handy, get your old-style plug-in phone ready (the one that works without needing power), and keep a friendly eye on your neighbors.

Help for Steve and Nancy Edelstein..Steve will be bringing Nancy home from the hospital this afternoon after hip replacement surgery.
Although their driveway has been plowed there is a fair bit of slush on the top third and Steve is concerned that he may not be able to drive up to the house. We will be going over @ 2:30 to work on shoveling this slush off. Any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to seeing a bunch of folks with snow shovels at heir driveway 16 Spruce St up the hill from the school; first house on the left after the hairpin turn.

hey everyone, be super, super careful if you're driving the canyon today, I just came back up from Boulder and it was much, much worse than it was on the way down... Honestly, I think it's significantly more slippery than it has been the entire winter, including our worst storms. just a big heads up!! With all wheel drive and in winter mode, my wheels could barely grip anything or stop or turn... Be safe.

If we end up getting 2-plus feet of snow, I will probably cancel and reschedule the heartworm testing and wellness clinic I've scheduled for this Saturday (April 18) at my office. That much snow will make it pretty inconvenient for everyone, messy, and chilly in the office. I'll let you know for sure tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.
07:57 AM MT(US)
Please call if you could plow my drive a time or two over the next few days. 3o3-544-o3o3 Thanks!

House on Mesa for rent in JT - May 1st/2nd

Looking for a good someone(s) to rent this beautiful spot - you'd be the sole occupant(s) with an upstairs master + shower, and downstairs full bath, living room, and a great kitchen.

Wood-burning stove in the living room, garden would be happy to be planted, so anyone with a green thumb especially welcome. MUSIC welcome (maybe mandatory). Good neighbors aplenty. Would love to get a hot tub this summer. Nice grill in the back yard. Sweet Asko washer/dryer, shared by me (since I live in a separate house on the same property), as is the kitchen as needed, which isn't often.

The place is being cleaned up and organized "a little" and could use some help up front, for significant rent trade, if you're interested and kick ass at that sort of thing... Otherwise looking forward to having it ready for you at the beginning of May, between the 1st/2nd!

Possibility of some rent trade each month for helping out a little on the prop! Just looking for a quality, on-the-level person, young or old, you know who you is...

$750, *possibly* negotiable, who knows, let's see how things go... Holler!!

it's a bit disheartening to be taking military showers and refrain from washing bed sheets, only to walk down main street and see freshly planted lawns being watered...

Corey, I was at the meeting and what I have to say is not official. My understanding about the water is they are about to start producing water very soon, within days (forgot the specifics). There are a variety of technical issues that are being worked that have to do with staying within state health limits. The contributing factors are several and nobody is to blame. Everyone is working diligently and hard to stabilize the system which ultimately goes back to impacts from the flood and the fact that we are still in transition. In the mean time we are asked to conserve water which I understand to mainly mean no watering of lawns, washing cars, and similar non-critical uses.

Other construction projects sound like they are on track with what we were told previously with the schedule in the last Community Meeting's slides on the town website (which is working for me). Tara said that Andersen Hill will start after spring runoff with no specific dates offered. The town is still negotiating with only one property owner. The other easements with all other property owners have been resolved.

I asked about the orange lines on Mesa wondering if the water line work was starting "any minute". But those were done by the engineers who is starting to work on the design in preparation for the project going out for bid. I don't recall when the work starts but again, the plan is in the previous slides. The goal is to complete the water line on Mesa to the school before school starts in mid-August.

We were unable to attend the community meeting last night, and we feel in the dark about what's going on with the water plant and distribution system, anderson bridge, the miner's ditch, etc.! Please post an official town update!
Also, for whatever reason, the Town's website is down!

Hi. Some of you older timers from jugband days will for sure remember Johnny Buzzrd (Norris). I spoke with his lovely, beautiful wife Char yesterday. Her cancer has returned and she will be going into radiation therapy next week to try to slow/halt its growth. I know she will appreciate any good vibrations sent her way through any spiritual transmission lines at your disposal. Thanx and Peace. SVH

Last summer we had some lovely hanging baskets on light poles throughout town. Come fall the flowers died, and somebody set the one by my house on the ground. Next day guess what appeared in it (still in it, btw..)? Fertilizer!

Anonymous poopers, indeed.
