Update: January 4

Household water supplies in Superior and Louisville could be unsafe to use after the fires that swept through Boulder County last week. 

Officials in those communities are instructing residents to boil tap water before using it. Contaminants could be entering through leaky pipes damaged by the fire or water lines that lost pressure.

The boil water order is in effect until further notice. On Wednesday, officials said they hope to end the notice on Sunday.
