Regional non-events – February 2000 – Colorado Central Magazine
Some of us were joking about what the arrival of Y2K might do around here — i.e., “the trains will quit running, turn signals won’t work on cars, and our telephone service will be erratic.”
But by all accounts, the year 2000 arrived as smoothly here as elsewhere in the world.
For instance, it’s still safe to drink the town water in Saguache, despite accounts to the contrary that were printed in some Valley newspapers. Saguache water isn’t chlorinated — not because Y2K caused a failure at the treatment plant, but because it doesn’t need to be chlorinated.
