For town of Ophir residents: Until further notice only use minimal water for very basic needs due to a waterline break in the water plant. Do not water your yard and limit showers an other water use to only what is absolutely necessary! The Town of Ophir will keep residents updated via our email and text message notification system. Thank you!
Due to low water levels and dry, windy weather - not to mention the fires burning near and around San Miguel County - the Town of Ophir is implementing Fire Restrictions.
Please adhere to the following until further notice.
The Ophir Self Reliance Committee thanks you for helping to create a successful composting program for the Town of Ophir.
Covid-19 has changed many things and the community compost program is not an exception. We want to let you know the measures that individuals can take and that are being taken to reduce and clean communal touched surfaces. The entrance to the current compost unit is disinfected daily. The trash barn is getting a weekly deep cleaning. Huge thank you to Ken and Sydney!!!
For parts of the next 3 weeks, we will be maintaining stormwater drainage and streets. This will consist of some ditch improvements, general grading of streets, seeding, and repair damage from plowing. Moisture being applied to the road is water.
