Water Alert

***Attention Hugo Residents*** Earlier this afternoon Hugo Public Works notified Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that there was evidence of THC in the Town of Hugo's water supply.

We are asking everyone on Hugo water to avoid drinking, cooking, and bathing in Hugo Water.

At this time, Investigators are assessing the situation with state and federal authorities. Bathroom usage is still safe, but until more information is known to us, out of an abundance of caution, avoid drinking Town of Hugo Water.

Fresh water is on the way to the community.

The Sheriff will update everyone via Facebook and Twitter when it arrives.

“A valid license is an important step in planning your hunt this and every year in Colorado,” said Cory Chick, CPW’s license manager. “A familiarity with CPW’s hunting regulations and brochures can help you decide on the right tag for the right location and appropriate rules to follow in those areas.” 
 
Leftover limited licenses (licenses remaining after the primary and leftover draws) go on sale in person and by phone Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 9 a.m. MDT. These licenses are available online starting at midnight on Aug. 3. MDT. The list of leftover licenses available for purchase will be available July 27 at cpw.state.co.us/thingstodo/Pages/BigGame.aspx.

All purchases require a current and valid photo ID, proof of residency, social security number, and a Hunter Education card, unless the hunter was born on or before Jan. 1, 1949. Online verification requires input of the hunter education information located on the card and the state in which it was issued. Bring this card with you for in-person sales.
