MANITOU SPRINGS — A water disruption affected Manitou Springs as the city's Public Works department made an emergency water main repair on the water main that connects the City’s Mesa water storage tank to Manitou Springs on Monday.

The work disrupted a large percentage of houses in Manitou Springs as water pressure dropped.

The city is urging residents to conserve water by:

  • Turn off sprinklers
  • Do not wash sidewalks, cars, etc. with water
  • Avoid laundry, dishwashing, etc.
  • Do not use water for anything but necessary activities

Emergency response crews for the City of Manitou Springs were able to the break at around 12:05 pm on Monday afternoon.

Once the water connection is restored, discolored water or low water pressure is normal. Running your bathtub tap on cold will resolve the issue.

Updates will come from the city’s website.
