From the Evergreen Metro District web page as of 9:00 a.m. Sunday:
It is raining in the area and the stream flow is increasing slightly.
We will continue to monitor stream flows. The sewage collection system is
running at peak levels, particularly through the lower areas along creeks and
drainages. As a result, the District would ask that you please try to
limit the amount of water you use in your homes to prevent further overtaxing of
the sewer system. Sections of Upper Bear Creek still are
inundated by flood waters. The downtown area is open to vehicle
traffic. The drinking water system remains good. Water quality in
Evergreen Lake has improved slightly from yesterday. We have increased the dosage of chlorine in
the treatment process; although there may be a chlorine taste and or odor, the
drinking water is safe and will remain safe. The Evergreen Dam is
being watched and is safe; there is no threat of failure of
the dam. The District will update information as conditions change.
