In 2015 the Colorado Department of Health and Environment determined that the Aspen Village Metropolitan District’s groundwater wells was under the influence of surface water. Therefore, the State directed that the Aspen Village Metropolitan District increase its chlorination/disinfection level to a minimum residual chlorine level of 2.0 parts per million to continue to ensure the safety of your drinking water:

Notice from CDPHE - May 15, 2015 : Notification of Final Evaluation of Surface Water Influence to Wells
Notice from CDPHE - May 19, 2015 : Requirements for Reclassification to Ground Water Under the Direct Influence of Surface Water (GWUDI)

A public notice regarding the chlorine increase in drinking water was posted at the clubhouse and emailed to residents. Chlorine has historically been used to disinfect the Aspen Village water supply. This increase in chlorine level is required by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. Some residents have expressed concern regarding the increased level of chlorine. A review of disinfection practices using Chlorine is provided for your reference:
