The Governor’s Ranch and Aspen Meadows non-potable irrigation pump repair has been delayed with the new operational date scheduled for June 8, 2022. The Town of Eaton was informed on Thursday, June 2 that due to sickness and staff shortages a contracted electrician will not be able to complete the project until June 8. The current contracted vendor has built the systems and is now tasked with installing them. Though the Town is actively looking for solutions, finding a new vendor would cause even additional delays.

The Town of Eaton recognizes the frustration the delays on this project have caused. The Town is continuing to work with our contractors and suppliers to ensure project completion. Residents in the Governor’s Ranch and Aspen Meadows neighborhood will not be charged for non-potable water in the month of May. The decision to not charge residents in these neighborhoods was decided by the Town Board in reaction to the delayed repair of the neighborhoods’ non-potable irrigation system. Town staff is recommending the Town Board extends waiving this charge through June.

The system is now scheduled to be operational on June 8. Residents should note that once the non-potable water is available, water restrictions will still be in place to preserve the integrity of the irrigation system and to keep from depleting the well which could cause damage. Water restrictions include no watering between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and a scheduled approach to watering, with residences with even-numbered addresses watering on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays of each week, and residences with odd-numbered addresses watering on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays of each week.

Those with questions about water conservation and restrictions can visit the Town’s website to learn more.
