Walsenburg Water Issue

For BHR owners who must haul their water from Walsenburg, the City has just sent out the following announcement: "Our water system recently violated a drinking water requirement. Although this situation is not an emergency, as our customers you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. On First Quarter, 2020 we were notified that our system exceeds the maximum contaminant level (MCL) ,for Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM). . . . We also failed to notify you of the violation/situation in a timely manner." [Trihalomethanes are common by-products from chlorinating drinking water.]


An alternate drinking water supply, such as bottled water, is recommended as well as consulting your doctor if you have any specific health concerns. They anticipate resolving the problem by 6/30/2020. For more information, please contact Greg Sund at cityadmin@cityotwalsenburg.com or 719-695-1030.
