700 homes left without water for most of Thursday

LOMA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Roughly 700 homes were left without water for most of Thursday.

The reason for the outage was because of a planned project by the Ute Water Conservancy District.

They needed to reroute an underground pipe so Mesa County can go ahead with expanding a bridge on 14 ½ road.

The outage was between 9am to 5pm but crews were able to feed back water to Loma Elementary school and local businesses so they were not disrupted.

Last night reverse phone calls were sent out to customers to make them know about the water outage.

"So an outage like this is a great opportunity for us to encourage our customers to make sure that their accounts are updated when those phone calls go out if we don't have a current phone number for the customers they will not receive a phone call,” said External Affairs Manager for Ute Water Conservancy District, Joseph Burtard.

They say to check the social media pages of Ute water for notifications and if you didn't receive that reverse phone message last night contact them at 970-242-7491.
