EAGLE ” A reported incidence of a mold problem at a Golden Eagle Senior Apartments unit was caused by a leak in a pipe.

It is, to the knowledge of the management, an isolated incident. The mold was discovered when a maintenance person went into the apartment to change a furnace filter, and discovered a leak that was dripping water onto wood in a crawl space below the roughly 20-year-old apartment. The dripping water caused mold to grow in that spot.

The leak was immediately fixed. Golden Eagle Senior Apartment Property Manager Claudia Alexander says she has received no reports of subsequent health problems.

“We have been proactive,” Alexander said.

Alexander said she immediately called in a mold specialist, Colorado Environmental Assessments out of Vail, who came the next day to remove the mold. Then, she followed up by calling in Colorado environmental specialist Wendell Rahorst, who sampled the air quality in 10 units, just to be sure. Results are expected back next week.
