A Colorado Community is under a boil order today after E.coli was detected in their drinking water.

The order affects some neighborhoods in Lafayette. That area is northwest of Denver.

A water sample reportedly tested positive Friday evening. Crews are flushing chlorinated water through the system to clean it.

Another test will be done, and results are expected Saturday evening.

Until the boil order is lifted, residents are advised not to drink the water without boiling it first. Boiled water should also be used for things like brushing your teeth, washing dishes and making food.
