A drinking water warning in the town of Hot Sulphur Springs was sent to a local business on US Highway 40 on March 13 at 11 a.m. According to the printed noticed there was a line break on March 13, which resulted in “significant loss of pressure in the drinking water system” and to boil your water before using.

The water line break occurred on Aspen St. between Moffat and US Highway 40 in Hot Sulphur Springs. Bacteria tests were performed at 8 a.m. on March 14.

According to Sally DiSciullo, Hot Sulphur Springs Town Trustee, only the people who got the notice on their doors or business were affected.

Although, the printed notice doesn’t state who it currently affects.

The notice states to “boil all water for three minutes and let it cool before using, or use bottled water.”

“Water main breaks resulting in a loss of system pressure can introduce disease-causing organisms into the water system. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.”

Jack Zielinski who was mentioned on the noticed to contact with more information didn’t answer calls on Monday evening but he can be reached at 970-531-0990.

No notices about the drinking water warning were sent to the Sky-Hi News about the boil water warning.
