WELD COUNTY AND ANADARKO PARTNER TO BRING WATER TO WATTENBERG

The residents of the unincorporated town of Wattenberg located in south western Weld County recently found themselves without safe water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation due to elevated nitrate levels in their water system. Nitrate in drinking water is a serious health concern, especially for infants less than six months old and the elderly.

Upon hearing about the issue in Wattenberg, Weld County Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer directed the Department of Public Health and Environment to have potable drinking water delivered to the residents, renting a potable water trailer capable of holding 6,000 gallons of water.

“As soon as we heard about the situation in Wattenberg, we took steps to get safe drinking water out to the residents,” said Commissioner Kirkmeyer. “This is no different than anything else Weld County would do for any of its residents in a time of crisis.
