Boil Order - Lifted
Central City officials received the water test results this afternoon from the Colorado Department of Health. All tests were clear and city officials were given permission to lift the "Boil Order" effective immediately. The water system is operating normally and the water is usable for all purposes, including drinking.
On behalf of the City of Central, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience as we dealt with this matter.

Please be advised, the main line has been repaired and fully charged. We ask that all residents please keep their faucets open (until water comes out in a clear and steady flow) to allow for any trapped air to escape, this should help expidite the restoration of normal pressure within the system. Please do not be alarmed if you notice large amounts of air, or any discoloration to the water coming out of your faucets, this is completely normal and may take a bit of time to be completely flushed from the system.
We will notify residents immediately upon receipt of information from the State regarding when the Boil Water Notice can be lifted, as well as post this information to our website: https://www.colorado.gov/centralcity
Please feel free to help yourselves to the bottled drinking water provided, though please take only as much as you absolutely need so that others may have the opportunity to take some as well.
Bottled drinking water at the following locations:
- Century Casino
- Dostal Alley
- Gold Mountain Village

The main line repairs have been completed. Our crews worked through the night and they are currently finalizing the recharging of the water system. Pressure in the lines have been gradually increased so as to lower the possibility for additional issues in the system. During this process, air will be purged from the water lines. When opening faucets, we ask that you keep them open to allow for any trapped air within the system to escape. Please do not be alarmed if you notice large amounts of air or any discoloration to the water coming from your faucets, as this is completely normal and will take a bit of time to flush from the system. Please keep the faucets open, with the strainer removed, until you receive a clear and steady flow. Once the recharge is complete and all lines are fully pressurized, we will be taking several water samples to Colorado Health Department certified laboratories for testing. Prior to receiving authorization from the State to lift the boil order, we must first pass our test results with the regulatory agencies. The mandated testing takes about 24-hours to complete. In the meantime, the water can be used for domestic uses such as bathing and sanitary services; however, the boil order will remain in effect for consumption until we are authorized to lift this precautionary measure. Until then, the City will continue to make bottled drinking water available for pick-up at City Hall.
