- August, 25, 2020 Notice to Community Regarding Construction and Civility: Hello Arabian Acres Residents, It has come to our attention that some of the residents have been yelling rude remarks and profanity to the construction workers. While we understand the frustrations involved in service interruptions and emergency situations that cause water to be turned off abruptly, it is important to remember that they are working with a very old and fragile system and they are doing their best to avoid problems. Treating them poorly does not reflect well on our community. Please reflect on the qualities of civility and decency that we know are abound in the community. In these difficult times, kindness goes a long way and will create an atmosphere of comradery that our community deserves and others will come to appreciate as we try to complete this project for the good of all our residents. Thank you for your time!

- March 13, 2020 – As your water provider, we at Arabian Acres Metropolitan District take the evolving outbreak of COVID-19 very seriously. We want you to know that we are here to keep you safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “coronaviruses are susceptible to the same disinfection conditions in community and healthcare settings as other viruses, so current disinfection conditions in wastewater treatment facilities are expected to be sufficient. This includes conditions for practices such as oxidation with hypochlorite (i.e., chlorine bleach) and peracetic acid, as well as inactivation using UV irradiation.” You can find the CDC’s page on COVID-19 and municipal water by clicking here. Since we are a community water system we are required by the state of Colorado to disinfect our drinking water. We use chlorine to achieve this task. Chlorine has been proven to kill or sterilize viruses and bacteria. Arabian Acres Metro District Water Systems is tested on a monthly basis to ensure that there are no bacteria or other harmful agents in our water. We want you to know we provide you safe water. If anything changes, we will update this message to reflect those changes. Please feel free to reach out to us with questions or concerns.
