Some Boulder Residents To Notice Change In Taste Of Water

BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Residents of some Boulder neighborhoods may be noticing a change in the taste of their water this week, but officials say the water is safe.

Water customers in Gunbarrel, Heatherwood, Hoover Hills and areas north of Arapahoe Avenue and east of Foothills Parkway are affected.

The change in taste is a result of the Utilities Division switching water intake sources at the Boulder Reservoir Water Treatment Plant from the Boulder Reservoir to the Boulder Feeder Canal.

“Service changes are a normal part of water treatment and distribution operations. No service interruptions are expected while the water source change occurs,” Andrew Barth with Public Works said in a statement.

Barth said the source change should also help clear up the taste issue reported in early September that was associated with algae present in the reservoir.

Western Boulder water customers are not affected.
