Waterline Replacement Project Service Disruption

Water Main

Work is almost completed on replacement of one of the two 24-inch watermains that serve the City of Grand Junction’s water customers. This project replaces the existing 1946 cast-iron pipeline between the City of Grand Junction’s water treatment plant on Orchard Mesa along 26 ¼ Road to Highway 50. The replacement project will improve system reliability and water quality delivery to our customers.

Customers that will be directly impacted by water outages include properties on Gettysburg Street, the Riverview Technology Center, and DOE when the old watermain will be shut down and connections to the new waterline are put into service. This will occur during the week of October 14.

During this time, other City water customers will be served by the second 24-inch watermain. As a result of this activity, some of our customers may notice water that is intermittently cloudy throughout the week. This is the result of air being introduced to the system and these issues can be expected to clear up by next week.
