VIA DAVE FELICE; From: Wittern, Matt <[email protected]>
As part of Denver Water’s commitment to working closely with the communities we serve, I’m writing you to let you know about some work that will take place in your area in September that may impact your neighborhood.
We are currently conducting a study of underground aquifers to determine whether they may be suitable for use in storing water for future use. This study requires us to drill exploratory wells at several sites across the metro area. One of these sites – located at 40 th and Colorado – is near your neighborhood (see map in attached flyer).
We have conducted an acoustical study and predict that when our noise mitigation strategies in place, the nighttime noise traveling off-site will be below the 50 decibel residential limit set by Denver’s Noise Ordinance. To give context, I’m also attaching a document that compares decibel levels to commonly known noise generation sources.
I do not think our work will cause any inconvenience to your neighborhood, but wanted to reach out and introduce myself in case you are interested in more information, would like to discuss our noise mitigation strategies in more depth, etc.
