The Colorado Department of Public Health has issued the following advisory. To read the entire advisory, please see: www.cdphe.state.co.us/release/2008/03192008b.html.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Wednesday has ordered the city of Alamosa to issue a bottled water advisory for Alamosa residents due to an outbreak of Salmonella in the community. Area residents and visitors are advised to immediately stop using tap water from the city’s water system for drinking and cooking and to begin using bottled water until further notice.
Until such time as sufficient bottled water resources are available in the community, residents are advised that the next best protection is to boil any water from the city’s municipal water system. Water to be consumed should be brought to a rolling boil, but there is no need to boil longer than 15 seconds.
