BOIL WATER NOTICE

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.

 

 

Due to a MAIN BREAK the California Department of Public Health in conjunction with the Lake County Health Department, and Clearlake Oaks County Water System are advising residents on or near Orchard Shores Sub Division, Lake Village Estates, Jenson Road, Sulphur Bank Rd, Elem Indian Colony and 13537 E. Hwy 20 Clearlake Oaks, CA to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.

 

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

 

  • An alternative method of disinfection for residents that are not able to boil their water is to use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach.  To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using.  A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.

  • Water disinfection tablets may also be used by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

     

    We will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 48 hours.
