Water System Public Information

The State of Colorado requires Crystal Lakes Water & Sewer Association to do periodic water testing to ensure that our water meets drinking water requirements. Should a test come back at “action levels,” requiring us to take action to meet drinking water requirements, we need to be able to communicate that to our property owners. This webpage has been set-up to help ensure that these communications take place. We also send out emails to the entire community as well as to those directly affected. All communications can be found in the Water System Public Information Book that is available in our office at 241 Blackfoot Road, Red Feather Lakes, CO 80545.

April 2022: The Association had the Small and Large Volume Fill Stations tested for Lead and Copper for our community’s piece of mind. These test results are now posted below. Here is a bit of information on how to read these results: The EPA sets the standard for “Action Levels”. Action Levels give us a cutoff for when drinking water needs to be treated for lead and copper. The Action Level for Lead is 0.015mg/L (milligrams per Liter) and the Action Level for Copper is 1.3 mg/L. The tests for our Large and Small Volume Fill Stations came in well below these Action Levels, meaning that the water that comes from those two stations is considered clean, potable drinking water.

May 2023: Corrosion control treatment was installed and went into operation on May 3, 2023. Since installation the Association performs pH and alkalinity testing every two weeks in order to dial in the system. Lead and Copper testing performed in August 2023 and February 2024 indicate that treatment is working to reduce lead to below action level numbers, and copper is reduced but still needs more adjustment.

Please contact the Crystal Lakes Water and Sewer Association office should you have any questions.
