Water in the town of Hugo, CO is not contaminated with THC after all, state tests concluded Saturday morning.
Saturday morning's update from the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office said the initial test kit results are now believed to have been false positives. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation provided the more conclusive results indicating the water does not have THC, the main psychoactive compound in marijuana.
A water advisory for the town that had officials warning residents to avoid drinking or using the water was canceled Saturday morning with the news.
"We are happy to report that the water advisory is cancelled immediately," the sheriff's office wrote Saturday. "Please resume any and all water activities."
There were no reports of illness or symptoms from people drinking the water, Captain Michael Yowell, a spokesman for the sheriff's office confirmed Saturday.
