The Evergreen Metropolitan District will begin the annual water-main flushing program the first week of June and continue through the summer.

Affected areas will be Tanoa, El Pinal, Wah Keeney Park, Hiwan Hills and Hiwan. The purpose of water-main flushing is to remove fine particles that settle in the water mains that cause color, taste and odor issues.

Residences in areas that are being flushed may experience a light yellowish color water that is caused by the mineral manganese. The color does not have any health effects but will cause stains in laundry. If you have any questions, contact the Evergreen Metropolitan District at 303-674-4112.
