Cypress Forest PUD’s Operator EDP (Environmental Development Partners) is gearing up for what could be a prolonged hard freeze. If it gets as cold for as long as what is currently forecasted (Sunday / Monday /Tuesday time frame), we expect widespread customer frozen pipes and pipe breaks when it begins to warm. This could result in numerous service calls for no water and broken pipes. Their resources will be stretched. Therefore, we ask or residents to prepare your homes and protect outdoor faucets, hose bibs and irrigation systems exposed directly to the cold. Check your favorite weather sites. EDP follows https://spacecityweather.com/ for weather forecasts.

Dear Champion Forest Resident:
Horseshoe Construction has been awarded a contract by the Cypress Forest Public Utility District (PUD) to complete a rehabilitation project of the sanitary sewer lines in Champion Forest Sections 1 and 2. Televising of the pipes and the rehab activity will begin on or after October 1, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of February 2019.
The purpose of the project is to upgrade the old sanitary sewer lines throughout the neighborhood, in an effort by the PUD to maintain the integrity of the service to all residents.
The proposed work will involve, at different times, the following tasks:
1. Video Taping of the Project Site (streets, front and back yards)
2. Cleaning and Televising of the Sanitary Sewers and Manholes
3. Rehabilitation & Testing of Sanitary Sewers and Manholes
4. Restoration of the areas disturbed by the construction activity
The work will require construction personnel to enter the front and back yards at various times, so they can gain access to the easements where the sanitary sewer pipes and manholes are found. The workers from Horseshoe Construction will conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. We pledge to complete the work assigned to us by the PUD as quickly as possible, and would appreciate your help and cooperation. If you are aware of disabled persons or shut-ins who might require special attention during this period, please advise us, and we will make all necessary provisions to accommodate the residents with these special conditions. We would also like to kindly request that all pets be secured while we are working in the area.
Although the bulk of the work will take place within the utility easement (found in most back yards), access to these easements might require our personnel to be on your property outside of the utility easement. In the event that the construction activity causes any damage to your property, Horseshoe Construction will return your property to its original condition, as obligated by its contract with the PUD.
If you have any questions, please contact Horseshoe Construction’s field superintendent, Mr. Bill Johnson at (281) 507-7614, or the project manager, Mr. Taylor Jones at (281) 415-8654.
On behalf of the Cypress Forest Public Utility District, we thank you for your patience and understanding during this project.
