FORT COLLINS - Though not significant, city crews saw "slight increases" in stream flows by Sunday afternoon.
Increased rain in the foothills throughout the evening Sunday is expected to cause Poudre River levels to rise, a news release said.
Fort Collins Utilities' Water Treatment Facility reported the city's drinking water remains safe. Water is coming from Horsetooth Reservoir, not the Poudre River.
Loveland's water, wastewater and power facilities were fully operational Sunday. The city wasn't under any boiling restrictions, but users were asked to conserve water and turn off irrigation systems.
The city of Fort Collins adds a word of caution to all those kids splashing in newborn puddles and streams: Floodwaters are likely contaminated with sewage from breached septic systems and contain dangerous bacteria. Officials advised residents to stay clear of flooded areas until cleanup is complete.
