  1. 6/24/2016 HELP US HELP YOU! HELP STOP VANDALISM OF BOW MAR SEWER MANHOLES
  2.  

    If you see anyone other than District personnel lifting Bow Mar manhole covers and/or placing objects down sanitary sewer manholes, please call our District 24-Hour office number at 303-979-2333 immediately.

     

    Rocks or anything else dumped down a sewer manhole can result in personal injury, sewage backups and spills into homes, yards, roads and waterways, potentially contaminating vital water sources and causing damage to the entire wastewater collection and treatment system and resulting in expensive clean-up and repairs for both the District and our customers.

    The District has taken preventive measures by converting those sewer manholes that are located in areas that are not in daily public view or off the beaten trail with locking manhole covers but those in public view in paved areas are not so equipped.

     

    It is very important that anyone noticing dislodged manhole covers or any unusual activity around a manhole report it to the District immediately. Your vigilance could help prevent sewage backups and spills in your community.
