Lead information made available to public

As a result of ongoing media coverage of the health crisis of lead in the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, many people across the nation who have never questioned the quality of their drinking water may now be wondering, “Is MY water safe?”

To answer that question for Pueblo Water customers, a brochure (see accompanying document) has been developed to provide information on what the potential health concerns from lead exposure may be, how Pueblo’s water quality is protected, and how those who may have some lead content in their premise plumbing can keep that lead from affecting their drinking water. This is important information for us all to know. If you have questions or concerns on this topic, contact Don Colalancia, Division Manager of Water Quality, Treating and Pumping at 584-0265.
