The Castle Pines North Metropolitan District issued the advisory Wednesday morning.

CASTLE PINES, Colo. — The Castle Pines North Metropolitan District issued a Boil Water Advisory for a large portion of Castle Pines, on Wednesday morning.

“We regret to inform our residents that there is a temporary disruption in water service affecting large portions of the Castle Pines North Metropolitan District and we are issuing a Boil Water Advisory until further notice,” the district posted to its website. 

The district posted the following instructions for residents under the advisory:

  • Boil Water: Bring all water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before using it for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes.
  • Bottled Water: Alternatively, you may use bottled water for the above purposes.
  • Avoid Consuming Unboiled Water: Do not consume untreated tap water. This includes avoiding the use of ice from automatic ice makers and water dispensers.
  • Infants and Vulnerable Populations: Extra caution should be taken for infants, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems, as they are particularly susceptible to waterborne illnesses.
  • Personal Hygiene: You may use tap water for bathing and showering, but be careful not to swallow any water.
  • Dishwashing: If possible, use disposable plates, cups, and utensils. If washing dishes by hand, use boiled or bottled water. Dishwashers may be used if the water reaches a final rinse temperature of at least 150 degrees Fahrenheit (65 degrees Celsius) or if the dishwater has a sanitizing cycle.
  • Food Preparation: Use boiled or bottled water for preparing food and beverages.

As part of the Monarch Waterline Rehabilitation Project, crews were connecting a new line when a line ruptured, according to the Castle Pines North Metropolitan District.

“Our team is working diligently to make the needed repairs and address the issue as quickly as possible,” the district posted on their website. “We anticipate that water service will be restored within the next few hours, and hope to have things resolved this afternoon.”

Significant discoloration is expected in the system as a result of the outage, the district said.
