MOAB -- Moab residents protested in front of Matrimony Spring this weekend demanding they be allowed to drink its water.

The popular water source was closed after a health official said it had high levels of coliform bacteria in it, but residents say more testing needs to be done.

Until then, many say they're willing to take their chances drinking the water.
