8 restaurants at DIA cleared to reopen after discolored water forced shutdowns

Denver International Airport

DENVER– Restaurants at DIA that were forced to close due to discolored water on Friday have been given the go-ahead to reopen as tests returned results determining the water has reached acceptable levels.

Construction on Concourse C is believed to have kicked up sediment into the water line.

Original story below:

The Denver Department of Public Health & Environment has shut down eight restaurants at Denver International Airport due to discolored water.

The health department took the precautionary move Friday morning when discolored water was reported at the restaurants.

Health experts told the FOX31 Problem Solvers that they asked the restaurants to hold off on preparing any food until the water is deemed safe through tests.

Denver Water has collected water samples and the results should be back today.

We reached out to DIA and they say the restaurants are at Concourse C and that Denver Water is investigating the situation.
