Waterworld Closed Due to Possible Contamination
Waterworld in Federal Heights is closed today and tomorrow from a possible water contamination at the park. A power outage and a broken valve could have let pond water into the park's water supply according to CBS Denver.
Officials are stating that if park goers came to Waterworld earlier this week on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday might have been affected. Possible contamination could have happened at the drinking fountains, ice machines, and concession stands may have been impacted. Symptoms of ingesting untreated water could be vomiting, diarrhea and fever. Symptoms can appear anywhere from 12 hours to 45 days after exposure.
If you happened to visit Waterworld on the days that the possible contamination happened and experience symptoms, you are being asked to call the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at 303-692-2700.
