A bottled water notification for 73 City of Loveland water customers, a small area west of West Ridge Drive and U.S. Highway 34, has been issued. The notification alerts residents that they should not drink or use in any form water from their faucets due to damage to portions of transmission lines from the water treatment plant that serve their homes.

The City has contacted the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Water Quality Division. The 73 customers will be notified by phone, and a notice will be hand delivered if there is access to their property as well. It will also be distributed to local shelters.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM AFFECTED?

 

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER FROM THE TAP. Bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice.

DO NOT BOIL THE WATER. The water may contain high levels of nitrate. Boiling, freezing, filtering or letting water stand does not reduce the nitrate level. Excessive boiling can make the nitrate more concentrated. DO NOT GIVE THE WATER TO INFANTS. Infants below the age of six months who drink water containing too much nitrate could become seriously ill and, if untreated, may die. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blue baby syndrome (blueness of the skin). If symptoms occur, seek medical attention immediately.

The water may contain bacteria or other disease-causing organisms such as viruses and parasites, which can cause short-term effects, such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea and associated headaches. People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice.
