LOVELAND, Colo. — A bottled water notification for 73 City of Loveland customers in a small area west of West Ridge Drive and U.S. Highway 34 is being distributed alerting residents that they should not drink or use in any form water from their faucets due to damage to portions of transmission lines from the water treatment plant that serve their homes.

The City has contacted the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment–Water Quality Division and a notification to the 73 customers will be carried out by phone, by hand delivery if there is access to their property, and distributed to local shelters.

A complete list of affected addresses can be found on the City’s website at www.cityofloveland.org or by calling 970-962-3000.
