Glenwood Springs water treatment plant issues resolved

Update, 10 a.m.: The treatment plant has regained access to the raw water supply. South Glenwood residents and businesses might still experience low pressure, but the rest of the city is expected to be functioning as normal.

The cause was deemed to be “air pockets in the water line and a severed communication line.”

The Glenwood Springs water treatment plant lost the raw water supply, according to a press release from the city of Glenwood Springs sent Wednesday morning around 7:30 a.m.

The cause was not yet known.

“Finished water is at low levels, which may lead to low water pressure or a temporary shut-off,” the release stated.

Water is currently being drawn from the Roaring Fork River.
