Drinking Water

Celebrate! Facilities staff has completed the installation of the state required drinking water disinfection system for all OLT facilities: Main Bath, Pool Bath, Welcome Center, Sunset Rooms, Spruce House, Pavilion, Oak House, Cottonwood, Elm, and Willow cabins. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has removed their boil order. The water is tested daily for the required chlorine residual and the filters that remove the disinfectant work well so that the drinking water tastes clean and chemical free. It has been a big project. Thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding as we worked through the details of design, installation, and testing. Enjoy drinking the water and be assured in knowing that it is safe. The state has a few more requirements that we will be adding and we are working on the occasional low pressure concerns. The good news is that we no longer have to provide jugs of chlorinated water that tasted of chemical and added hours of work every day.
