Gov. Hickenlooper Orders Flags Lowered in Honor of Engineer Aaron Lybarger

Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered flags be lowered to half-staff statewide on all public buildings from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, June 24, 2018, in honor of West Metro Fire Protection District Engineer Aaron Lybarger.

Lybarger, 47, served with the West Metro Fire Protection District since 1992. He died on June 2, 2018, of esophageal and stomach cancer caused by on-the-job exposures. Lybarger is survived by wife Andrea, daughters Amanda and Anna Belle, his parents Barbara and Glenn, and brother Eric. Funeral services will be held privately at the family’s request.

Possible Contamination of Water Supply at Water World

A power outage and subsequent repair of a broken valve at Water World in Federal Heights likely allowed water from an irrigation pond to flow into the domestic water supply. This untreated water might have affected drinking fountains, and been used to make ice, drinks and food at all concession stands. This may also include water in some of the swimming pools. This may have affected guests who visited Water World on Monday, June 11 through Wednesday, June 13.
