Current Projects

Hospital Hill Storage Tank Renovations

In Partnership with the Colorado Department of Health and Environment and funded in part with EPA funding

Since being placed online in 1978 the Hospital Hill Storage Tank has never been drained and recoated due to the operational constraints of only having one water storage tank in the town’s water distribution system. With the construction of the Seneca Hill Tank in 2014, the town now has the operation capacity to take the Hospital Hill Tank offline to make minor repairs and recoat the interior of the tank. The coating system of choice is anticipated to extend the life of the tank another 30 to 50 years and help ensure contaminate-free water is able to be delivered to the residents of Hayden. A State Revolving Fund Loan of $854,000 was acquired to pay for this project.

Important Reminders for Those Living in Hayden

If you have a fire hydrant on your lot, it is your responsibility to keep it clear of debris like snow, weeds, trees, tall grass, etc.

If you have a sidewalk on your lot, it is your responsibility to keep it clear of debris including snow, weeds, trees, tall grass, etc.

Please be courteous and respectful of the snowplow operators. Please don’t park in the street right-of-ways, and give them at least five feet from the edge of the pavement so they can keep the streets completely plowed.
Don’t forget to maintain your water meter in the winter. It is the account holder’s responsibility to keep it from freezing.
