Avoid Potential Flooding in Your Home

Sometimes, curb stops / shut offs are buried by landscaping or pavement. The Basalt Water Department does NOT know where your shut off is located. Make sure YOU do.

Why You Should Find Your Water Shut Off
If your water line breaks near your house, or if your water line leaks inside your house, you can turn it off.

How to Find Your Water Shut Off
Look for a metal disk (curb stop) 4 to 5 inches in diameter with the word "water" stamped on it. It is located outside, between your house and the street.

If you cannot find it, Basalt’s Water Department staff may be able to help you, or we can recommend a contractor.  You should know where this shut off is located before an emergency arises.
