Water safe, but boil order remains

A mandatory boil order remains in effect for the Mountain Mutual Water Company in Teller County.

Results today show safe levels.  However, the boil order remains in effect as a precaution.

Mountain Mutual Water Company operates the central water system for Cripple Creek Mountain Estates. About 300 homes are served by the water company.

The water comes from wells located at Gillette Flats in Teller County.
