Water is back up and running in Golden after a 12-inch water main broke last night. If you live or work in Golden, please know the water is SAFE to drink. If your water is still a little cloudy, just let it run until it clears up.

The broken line is on 11th Street between Washington and Arapahoe. Westbound 11th between those streets will remain closed for the rest of today and possibly longer for repairs. But there should be no more problems with water or water use as a result of this break.

Golden lost about 1.5 million gallons of water before the line could be shut off. Many homes and businesses in the area were affected. Fortunately, Golden’s water supply is not depleted. Tank levels are quickly getting back to normal and water quality is good.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Anne Beierle at abeierle@cityofgolden.net.Tap water flows into the glass. Water quality in Golden is good
