Central City water service soon to be restored after repairs of water main

Central City’s water service to homes and businesses will soon be restored after construction crews worked through the night Friday into Saturday repairing a burst water main, officials said.

“We are anticipating the recharge of the water system will be complete within the next 12 hours,” Cherokee Blake, Central City spokeswoman, said Saturday.

Once the lines are fully pressurized, city officials will send water samples to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for testing, which takes about 24 hours.

In the meantime, residents can use the water for bathing and sanitation but they should continue to boil water until officials indicate it is safe to do so, Blake said.

The city will continue to offer bottled drinking water at City Hall.
