Is It Safe to Drink?

By  | 

Just when Pueblo residents thought it was safe to start drinking the water, it is.

Tests have determined the water quality in Fountain Creek is back to normal.

It was contaminated last week when 62 thousand gallons of partially-contaminated sewage was spilled.

Colorado Springs Utilities says human error is to blame after workers failed to close a valve during construction work.

Colorado Springs, which owns the utility, may receive a $10 thousand fine from the state for the incident.
