Mosquito Control Program

Mosquito Control Program

The Town of Johnstown has implemented biorational integrated mosquito management (IMM) through Vector Disease Control International (VDCI) for many years. The primary objective of this program is to monitor and reduce mosquito populations through the use of specific, environmentally sound, control techniques in order to protect residents from the threat of mosquito-borne diseases. 

Open communication is maintained by VDCI between the Town of Johnstown, County Departments of Health & Environment, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and surrounding municipalities in order to ensure that the highest level of mosquito control and epizootic response is achieved. This diligent and cooperative communication is important to the Town of Johnstown’s mosquito management program and provides significant benefit to public health throughout the entire area.

Installation of New Carbon Feeder System

Installation of New Carbon Feeder System

The Town of Johnstown Public Works Department anticipates purchasing a new carbon feeder system for the Town's reservoir. This system, will improve the taste and odor issues of Town water. The goal is to have the new carbon feeder system installed and operational by Summer 2021. Updates on the project will follow below.

April 2021 Update- In April, the Town Council approved the purchase of a Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) system that will begin to address 70-80% of the water taste and odor issues being experienced by residents. This is expected to be installed and operational by this summer. This is the first step in addressing the Town’s taste and odor issues and will involve public outreach and input to determine the next steps to reach a goal of 95% removal or better. In addition to the GAC, the Town has also ordered an Ultrasonic Buoy to be installed in the Town Lake which will work to reduce existing algae and prevent new algae growth. Algae is a major contributor to the taste and odor issues throughout the hot summer months. As these new parts of the Town’s water infrastructure are installed, the Town will continue to update residents.

December 2020 Update- The Town has hired a vendor to do a study regarding the Town's water taste/odor issues. This study will determine the path the Town needs to make in purchasing a new carbon feeder system to make the biggest impact on resident water services.
