BRIGHTON, Colo. (CBS4) – Some residents in Brighton spent part of the holiday weekend without drinkable water in their homes.
The Todd Creek Village was under a boil water order. That order has since been lifted.
Neighbors found out about the order from a reverse 911 call or through local agencies spreading the information.
“I’m glad they’re taking all the necessary steps to keep us safe,” said Luke Richards.
The ordeal started with an issue created by construction work in the area when crews hit a water main.
Some people loaded up with five gallon jugs to help their families get through the weekend.
State guidelines say residents should boil water for one minute before using that water for drinking, cooking, making ice, cleaning dishes and personal hygiene.
