Boil advisory issued for Castle Pines



The loss of a chlorine injector and loss of pressure in the distribution system may allow disease-causing organisms to enter the water system, a release said.

CASTLE PINES, Colo. — A boil advisory was issued for residents of Castle Pines Thursday until further notice as directed by the Water Quality Control Division (WQCD) of the Colorado Public Health & Environment (CDPHE).

On Friday, officials said the boil water advisory will remain in effect though Saturday at least.

Castle Pines North Metro District (CPNMD) said contactors flushed lines on Thursday and are water-sample testing on Friday. Results are expected back by Saturday, and CDPHE may or may not lift the advisory depending on the results.

Due to a loss of pressure in almost half of their distribution centers and  low pressure on the other half,  CPNMD said the water could allow disease-causing organisms to enter the water system.

No contamination has been detected, said CPNMD, but organisms likely to enter the water system are bacteria, viruses and parasites.

Symptoms that could be associated with organisms in drinking water are nausea, cramps, diarrhea and associated headaches. 

CPNMD said if someone is experiencing these experiencing over a long period of time, they should seek medical guidance.
