38 residences in East Vail without water service
A water leak on Glen Falls Lane in East Vail caused properties in the area to go without water service on Monday night.
The limited outage area is contained to Glen Falls Lane and some structures on Timber Falls Court, and those areas continued to have no water service on Tuesday. As of Tuesday afternoon, 14 single-family homes on Glen Falls Lane and four (6-unit) buildings at Timber Falls were out of water service for a total of 38 residences affected, the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District confirmed.
“We really appreciate Vail Racquet Club making shower facilities available to affected residents and guests,” said Diane Johnson, communications and public affairs manager for the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District.
Crews were scheduled to be onsite on Tuesday morning, but a safety closure of Vail Pass which began at about 7:15 a.m. delayed access to the area. The safety closure was lifted at about 10:15 a.m., but the interstate closed again during the afternoon hours.
The leak was discovered at about 2 p.m. on Monday when Eagle River Water and Sanitation District was notified of a leaking water main on Glen Falls Lane.
