May 26, 2020: Denver Water Lead Reduction Program
Denver Water Reduction Program has been postponed due to COVID. The June date previously sent out will be delayed. Lead in the Denver water is not caused by Denver Water pipes, there is no lead in the Denver Water pipes. However, the some homes have service lines with lead. These are the lines that run from Denver Water main lines to each home/building. Service lines with lead are most often found in homes built before 1951. Denver Water will be replacing the service lines containing lead. If you are unsure about your lines, you can request a kit from Denver Water to test your water. Denver water may already have identified your home as one that may have lead lines, in which case they will send a kit to test the water. You will perform the test as described and send it back to Denver Water, and they will replace the line if there is lead. A Brita Filter will be sent to homes with lead for use until the lines are replaced. The homeowner is allowed to replace the lines and can be reimbursed up to 50% of the cost, up to $3,500. See Denver Water Lead Reduction Program.

Electric or Gas Problems

The only way the Xcel will know of an outage is self reporting. New meters will be arriving in 2-5 years. In the meantime, please download the XcelEnergy mobile app and familiarize yourself with the reporting procedures.

You can also report an outage via phone or online:

For online report visit the XcelEnergy Storm Center
To report by phone:
Call: 1-800-895-1999 for electric outage
Call: 1-800-895-2999 for natural gas leak
or call customer service at: 1-800-895-4999.

In the past we have had several homes all without power for many hours. Xcel did not know the severity of the situation. Let's be proactive this year with reporting.

Town Lyft Program

Do you want to take the Light Rail but the parking at the Littleton Station is impossible? Do you want an easier way to get home from the station?

The Town has been working on a program with Lyft and is ready to help solve the problem. In an effort to offer more multi-modal transportation options and to help keep you out of the traffic of Santa Fe, the Town is offering the following program:

The Town of Bow Mar will pay for your Lyft ride from Bow Mar to the Light Rail Station and back. The Town will cover up to 25 rides per week (each no more than $10) to the station and back to Bow Mar. The $10 max is enough to cover rides to or from the Littleton Light Rail Station. The Town is going to run a 5 week trial on this program. The first 25 people, each week, to take advantage of this offer will get their ride paid for by Bow Mar.

It's easy: when you order a Lyft ride, simply use the code 'BOWMARRTDWK1' (for Bow Mar TRD Week 1). Each week a new code will be emailed out for use. The program starts today, Wednesday, April 24. Each Wednesday, a new code will be sent out to use.

Enjoy the ride!

Please Dispose of Dog Waste Properly

Our open spaces – Mary's Meadow, pathways and parks – and along our roads are not places for dog waste. The Board of Trustees recently passed Ordinance No. 279 Regarding the Removal of Animal Excrement, which requires dog owners to clean up after their pets.

Dog waste collection trash cans have been installed in Mary's Meadow, the corner of Sheridan and Bow Mar Drive, and at the Dog Beach. The collection stations are maintained by an outside service. Please use these stations for dog waste only.
