Boulder Reservoir.

BOULDER, Colo. — The city of Boulder announced that on Wednesday April 1, the Boulder Reservoir Water Treatment Facility will resume operations.

Ellen Kamilakis representative for the city’s public works said, that following water customers in Gunbarrel, Heatherwood, and Hoover Hills, as well as residents north of Arapahoe Avenue and east of Foothills Parkway may notice a slight change in the taste of their water due to the reopening.

The city of Boulder informs residents that water source changes are a normal part of operations of water treatment and distribution.

The potential taste change is a result of the difference in water source properties, between Boulder Reservoir and the Boulder Creek watershed.

No service interruptions are expected.

Water customers in western Boulder will not be affected because they will continue to receive water from the Betasso Water Treatment Facility, Kamilakis said.
