Boil advisory remains for county water customers – bottled water program available
Boil advisory remains for county water customers – bottled water program available.
A boil water advisory is still in effect for residents of Sugarloaf, according to the Shasta County Department of Public Works.
Last month, E. Coli was found in the well that serves the water system.
The advisory is in effect for the Sugarloaf water system, part of the County Service Areas.
The advisory has been in effect since March 18.
The county is working to upgrade the treatment system and lift the requirement.
In the meantime, state funds will be made available to provide bottled drinking water to customers meeting certain income and residential requirements, according to the Public Works Department.
In February, E. Coli was found in the untreated water from the well that serves the water system.
That includes boiling water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation.
Customers who would like to be considered for the bottled water service should contact the Shasta County Department of Public Works, CSA Division at (530) 225-5571.
