Welcome to the Town of Palisade


Town of Palisade Water - September 15, 2022

Greetings fellow Citizens of Palisade,

The Town has been notified by some of our citizens that they are experiencing a discoloration in their drinking water.  To dispel any rumors or mistruths that may be circulating, our water is safe to drink and there is not, and there has not been, any danger to the public's health.  The Town of Palisade does multiple drinking water tests daily, employs a State Certified Class A Water Operator, and is, and has been, in compliance with CDPHE - Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment - since the implementation of our new state-of-the-art water treatment facility.

The Utilities Department has been flushing the distribution system since Sunday to clear out any discolored water in the water lines.  The Town's water tanks are currently replenishing with our normal and aesthetically pleasing water.  The Town has also received some reports of a sulfur smell coming from their water.  Currently, our natural underground springs are not able to keep up with this seasonal demand.  The Town began to supplement this need with water from our reserves in the Cabin Reservoir.  This supplementation is normal for this time of year.  To note, the water from Cabin Reservoir has different characteristics that that of the spring water.  This can result in a initial faint musty or earthy smells some are currently experiencing.  This is normal and is nothing to be alarmed about.  It is a naturally occurring condition and is clean and safe to drink.

If you are still noticing a color over the next day or two, please reach out to our State Certified Plant Operator, Brian Flenniken by email at - bflenniken@townofpalisade.org or by phone at 970-209-3306.  The town is dedicated to providing the people of Palisade clean, safe, reliable drinking water.

The discoloration some have reported may have left some with a light film on fixtures, in particular the toilet, which might make the water still appear yellow.  A simple remedy is to use regular distilled white vinegar to remove any residual coloring.

The Cabin Reservoir's full point is 74 feet deep.  Cabin Reservoir filled this year for the first time in a number of years.  We are currently at approximately 72 feet deep, which is up from 64 feet last year.

We encourage residents to keep practicing water wise principles.
