Salmonella Found In Colorado Public Water Supply

Posted:

If you're planning a trip to southern Colorado, take plenty of bottled water in case you get thirsty driving through Alamosa.  So far, more than 200 cases of salmonella poisoning has been reported in that community and federal officials have confirmed the problem is in the town's water supply.  

Colorado's Governor Bill Ritter has declared a public health emergency. Governor Ritter adds, "To be without water is never easy, but especially with the elderly and small children." It's not clear what caused the salmonella outbreak in Alamosa, but officials say it could be weeks before residents can safely drink tap water again.
