Water Systems Back to Normal in Granada

Granada residents can return to normal water use as of today, June 21.  Repairs on the pumping and chlorination system were made last night and the wells and holding tank are back to normal levels, according to Granada Town Clerk, Jackie Malone. 

The system went off-line the night before last because of electric problems with the town’s water pumping system, apparently due to a lightning strike that ‘fried’ some of the metering system.  Repairs were on hold until representatives from SECPA, Southeast Colorado Power Association, arrived with additional testing equipment and replacement parts. 

Repairs were made last night and the system was brought back on line.  Residents were urged not to water their lawns yesterday because of the limited water and pressure in the system.  However, due to the drought and summer heat, residents are still being asked not to water their lawns between 10am and 4pm on any day.
