Health Advisory Issued For Colorado Rivers & Streams

Flooding on Big Thompson River 9/12/13
Mindy Crane, Colorado Department of Transportation

The flooding we have experience over the past 24 hours is making the water in our rivers and streams unsafe.  The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is advising residents of Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Larimer, Morgan, Logan, Sedgwick and Weld counties to reduce health risks by avoiding contact with rivers and streams that may be contaminated. The water could contain sewage and other waste-water due to power failures and damage to waste-water treatment systems.

Advice From The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment

  • Keep out of rivers and streams until further notice.
  • Do not allow children or pets to play in the water, nor allow children to play with toys that have been in contact with the water.
  • Individuals who come in contact with the water or are involved in cleaning up flood debris should practice good personal hygiene and wash their hands frequently with soap and clean warm water.
  • If a person is exposed to the water and has open wounds or begins to feel ill with diarrhea or vomiting, he or she should contact a physician for guidance and inquire about receiving tetanus/diphtheria inoculations.
  • Agricultural workers who come in contact with such waters should practice good personal hygiene and wash their hands frequently with soap and clean warm water.
