Update on the Drinking Water

You will notice some postings about the drinking water. Orient Land Trust has revised our application for pre-treatment of the drinking water. We were directed by Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to install filters at the beginning of each of our five treatment systems. They required that those be installed by the end of March. We are still waiting for approval of our revised application and have not installed those filters. Because we missed that deadline, we are required to post a letter informing you, the guest, that this has not been done. We have complied and the letter we posted has been written with language specified by the state and reviewed by the state. This is not an emergency, the water is disinfected and tested daily. We hope to have approval of our pre-treatment components soon and we will be buying and installing the necessary additions to the drinking water systems. Thank you for your patience.
