BEAR ACTIVITY IN THE FALL

We received an email from the Colorado Parks & Wildlife officer for the Steamboat II, Silver Spur and Heritage Park neighborhoods. He warned that human-bear conflicts ALWAYS pick back up in the fall. So, while there may be a lull in bear visits to your home or neighborhood right now, please stay vigilant! They will likely return!  Here's a short video he sent us with tips to bear-proof your home. 

BEAR IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

There is one or more bears causing problems in the Steamboat II, Heritage Park and Silver Spur neighborhoods. He is getting into trash cans and bird feeders. Please do your part to properly secure your trash. Add deterrents such as ammonia to your trash can to keep him away. The use of electric fencing on a garage door is also quite effective. Also, bring in your bird feeders at night. A fed bear is a dead bear! Here's a flier from the Colorado Parks & Wildlife website about Bearproofing Your Home.

WELLS WILL BE TURNED ON MONDAY JUNE 17, 2019

The well field will be activated on Monday June 17, 2019. 
The Steamboat II Metro District purchases water from the City of Steamboat Springs year-round. However, we are only allowed to buy 150,000 gallons of water per day and during the irrigation season, that simply isn't enough water to supply our District. We must supplement with our well field. The water has a lot of minerals in it, it is harder water and it is noticeably different. 
IT IS SAFE TO DRINK! 
The water is chlorinated and tested regularly. 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office at 879-7671. 

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-The four Steamboat Springs area water districts – Mount Werner Water, City of Steamboat Springs, Steamboat II Metro District and Tree Haus Metro District – have decided to wait on implementing mandatory stage 2 water restrictions at this time.


“We’re definitely in a different position than this time last year as we’re still seeing snow full of moisture accumulate at higher elevations,” said Frank Alfone, Mount Werner Water District General Manager. “Based on current conditions combined with forecasts, I’m cautiously optimistic about our current levels of water reserves as we look through the summer.”


Following a mostly cool and wet April, the Tower Site on Buffalo Pass was reporting, as of May 1, 131 inches of snow, climbing over a foot in the past two days, and a snow water equivalent of 53.6 inches (115% of average).  Overall, the Yampa & White River Basins snowpack is 107% of average and 147% compared to last year.


Run-off is expected to be at or near average with a modest chance that run-off would be accelerated due to projected higher 2019 summer temperatures. Steamboat depends upon a combination of natural flows and reservoir releases from the Fish Creek watershed to carry it through the summer, fall and winter.


“While the area has seen important rain and snow, we still need everyone to do their part, even without restrictions in place, to conserve water,” said Jon Snyder, Public Works Director for the City of Steamboat Springs. “We’ll continue to monitor conditions and storage levels as we move into summer and will not hesitate to implement mandatory restrictions if required.”
