Jamestown's water has been restored, 10 months after September's devastating floods.
JAMESTOWN, Colo. - For the first time in 10 months, some people in flood-devastated Jamestown have running water.
The irony isn't lost on Jamestown resident Kate Dobbertin, who described the sound coming from her faucet as music to her ears.
"It was too much water and then no water," she said with a smile. "My whole relationship with water has changed.
"We are getting the town back up and running," said Erika Rae Archer, the Jamestown Flood Project Manager.
Archer said 40 homes out of 115 now have running water.
The September floods wiped out the area, including the water plant and the water mains -- now being replaced.
"These water mains are amazing," said Resident Deborah Haynes with a shrug. "My whole understanding of beauty has shifted, perhaps."
