JAMESTOWN — One of the towns hardest hit by last year's flooding could have water service fully restored by the end of August.

Jamestown, in the foothills northwest of Boulder, lost half of its water distribution system and all of its underground water treatment infrastructure in the floods.

Mayor Tara Schoedinger told the Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/1lHdOb2) that 40 percent of the town's 115 homes have had water service restored as of July 7th. She said the whole town would likely have running water by some point in August, allowing more people to move back before the start of the school year.

Some residents who have returned have been relying on above-ground water filtration systems built with donations from the Rotary Club, the Salvation Army and Red Cross.
