Report a Water Outage or Service Disruption#

Call 970-221-6700 (24 hours, 7 days a week) to report: 

  • Water main breaks
  • Sewer line problems

If you are experiencing water quality or pressure concerns, including taste or odor issues, please first review our troubleshooting guides before calling to report the problem. 

Cloudy or Discolored Water

When service is restored, you may experience cloudy or discolored water for a short time. This water is not harmful, though it may stain laundry. It's also safe to use on plants and landscape. If you experience cloudy or discolored water:

  • wait until the nearby work is complete
  • remove faucet aerators or filters
  • run the COLD water for 10-15 minutes (it often clears within a few minutes)

If you notice improvements, continue running the cold water for a few more minutes or until it is clear. If it is not improving, turn off the water, wait 30 minutes and repeat. If it still doesn’t clear, you can call 970-221-6700 to report your concerns.

Limited Pressure

During a water line or main break, customers may still receive water with limited pressure.
