Your sewer water travels from each propert to our treatment facility, which is located at 61 South Pinedale Road.  The treatment is an advanced integrated lagoon system, which includes anaerobic treatment followed by aerbobic treatment, and UV disinfection prior to discharge into Pine Creek.

The Public Works Department recommends that all homeowners know the location of their water curb stop, and sewer clean out to aid in emergency situations.

FAQs

Neither our water source (Fremont Lake) nor our distribution system contains lead or copper. Lead may be present in private service lines which were plumbed with lead solder and/or lead containing fittings and fixtures. Lead found in tap water typically comes from corrosion of these older fixtures and from lead solder containing copper pipes. If the water sits stagnant in these lines for several hours, the lead may leach into the water and potentially become consumed.

The Town of Pinedale has been working with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Environmental Quality, and a consulting engineering firm to evaluate the Town’s optimal corrosion control treatment technique.

A report completed by the consulting engineering firm is undergoing review by the EPA and DEQ.  The outcome will be released upon agency approval.

If you have questions about our water treatment please contact the Director of Public Works.

If you are concerned of lead being in your water, the EPA recommends the following precautions:

  • Flush your pipes before drinking: The more time water has been sitting in your home’s pipes, the more lead it may contain. Anytime the water in a particular faucet water until it becomes as cold as it will get. This could take as little as five to thirty seconds if there has been recent heavy water use such as showering or toilet flushing. Otherwise, it could take two minutes or longer. Your water utility will inform you if longer flushing times are needed to respond to local conditions.
  • Only use cold water for eating and drinking:  Use only water from the cold-water tap for drinking, cooking, and especially for making baby formula. Hot water is likely to contain higher levels of lead. Run cold water until it becomes cold as it can get.Note that boiling water will NOT get rid of lead contamination.
  • Note that boiling water will NOT get rid of lead contamination.
  • Use water filters or treatment devices: Many water filters and water treatment devices are certified by independent organizations for effective lead reduction. Devices that are not designed to remove lead will not work. Verify the claims of manufacturers by checking with independent certifying organizations that provide lists of treatment devices they have certified.
