BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) — The city of Brighton says workers trying to find how E. coli got in its water system have isolated 18 homes in an area that could be the source of contamination.
The water system in the area was being flushed, and more tests were being done to pinpoint the source of the problem.
On Wednesday, the city advised residents to boil their water before drinking, cooking or brushing teeth with it after samples earlier this week tested positive for E. coli.
Platte Valley Medical Center said that as of noon Friday, it hadn't seen any increase in patient volume due to the boil water advisory.
Free bottled water was being provided for residents at the police department, thanks to donations from businesses.
