Based on the notice that there is a Declaration of Emergency in the City of Longmont, the City is again enacting a curfew from 10 pm tonight until 6am tomorrow morning in flood zones and evaucation areas. We are formally requesting that citizens comply with this curfew and remain indoors during these hours.
City of Longmont Water utility customers can continue using drinking water as they normally do.The City of Lyons is advising their residents to boil drinking water, but Longmont is not advising customers to do the same.
We are also asking residents and businesses to turn off their irrigation systems as soon as possible in order to reduce demand on the treated water system.
The City of Longmont has also dispatched engineers to begin inspecting bridges that have been affected by the flood. No bridge that is out of commission will be reauthorized for use until it has passed this inspection. We will communicate bridge and road re-openings as they occur.
We have updated our street closing / opening list on longmontoem.org as of 8 pm
Longmont Power & Communications is reporting that during the last few hours electric power distribution has been stable. Overnight crews will be responding to newly reported outages, but will suspend restoration of system infrastructure until tomorrow morning.
The City of Longmont is also informing Longmont Power & Communications (LPC) customers that if they have been out of power for an extended period of time, it's likely LPC can't access their equipment due to flooding. Sustained outages are likely to continue for these customers until water recedes and we can safely access equipment and safely make repairs.
