NORTH CARTER LAKE WATER DISTRICT

METER REPLACEMENTS

The District will begin changing out water meters starting June 29th.  This is a process that is done approximately every 15-20 years.  The components within the metering chamber begin to wear out and the the battery that transmits the meter read signal back to the meter reader becomes weak or does not read at all.  This change out is a few years early, due to the fact that the technology to read the meters became obsolete.   A typical meter change out takes about 15 minutes.  During that process, your water will be turned off.  Please be patient as I, or subcontracted help change out your meter.  You will most likely see North Carter Lake Water District logos on the side of the truck.  I may also solicit help from the other water district that I manage.  If so, those trucks will have Longs Peak Water District logos.  This work will typically happen over the weekends and early evenings.  If you know where your meter is located, please take some time to remove any debris from that area.  Please also trim back any bushes, grasses, or shrubs that may make it difficult to access the meter quickly.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly at 303-618-7971.  Gary Allen

The North Carter Lake Water District delivers safe, quality water to about 145 homes and businesses in the Carter Lake area of Northern Colorado. We are dedicated to providing quality water as economically as possible while promoting water conservation throughout Northern Colorado.

Our water comes from Carter Lake, is treated at the Carter Lake Treatment Plant which is located below Dam #1 at the south end of the lake. From there it is pumped to our treated water storage reservoir located on the ridge above the NE corner of Carter Lake. It is then gravity fed throughout most of the system, and to two pumping stations on the west side of the reservoir to accommodate residences at higher elevations.

Our water must meet all Federal, State and Local Standards and must comply with EPA Regulations and the Safe Water Drinking Act. We have always met and exceeded those standards, and continue to do so.

The District is governed by a 5-member elected Board of Directors. The Board sets policy and sees that those policies are carried out. There is one part-time employee of the District, that being Gary Allen who manages and maintains the District’s facilities. He is also the appointed Secretary of the Board of Directors and handles all day-to-day operations of the District as well as compliance of all governmental requirements of a water district.

If you have questions about any aspect of the District, need information about the District, your account, specifications, or any other matter, please contact Gary Allen at the office (970-776-8218) or by email at  gary@nclwd.org  .
