A recent outbreak of salmonella in Alamosa has caused officials from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to issue an advisory for residents not to drink the tap water.
Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause an intestinal illness in people and animals. Information on salmonella can be found on the Public Health and Environment website, and from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

UPDATE: For the latest information on the situation in Alamosa, consult the “Situation Reports” from the State Emergency Operations Center and the City of Alamosa website.
