BAILEY, Colo. — Bailey residents are without water due to a busted pipe that has yet to be located, according to a post on the Bailey Water and Sanitation District website.

The post says they've shut off the water in order to locate the pipe that broke on Sunday and that a company is coming on Wednesday to help locate it.

Once it is located, maintenance crews will begin work to repair the damage, the post says.

Residents are being asked to turn off faucets to help with the location of the pipe. Bottled water will be handed out at the first station in the town of Bailey (fire station 1) between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday.

After water pressure is restored, residents should boil their water before consuming it. More detailed instructions can be found here.

Mad Jack's Mountain Brewery said in a Facebook post that they would be closed until possibly Wednesday due to the water issue.
