July 22, 2013 - Boulder Residents May Notice a Slight Change in Water Taste This Week
Boulder residents may notice a slight change in water taste this week
Beginning Monday, July 22, City of Boulder water customers in Gunbarrel, Heatherwood, Hoover Hills and areas north of Arapahoe Avenue and east of Foothills Parkway may notice a slight taste change in their tap water. This change is due to the switch of water sources at the Boulder Reservoir Water Treatment Plant from the Boulder Feeder Canal to the Boulder Reservoir.
Source changes are a normal part of water treatment and distribution operations. No water service interruptions are expected while the water source change occurs. Western Boulder water customers are not affected because they receive their water from Barker Reservoir via the Betasso Water Treatment Facility.
