A lodge outside Las Vegas is taking precautionary measures after its water tested positive for harmful bacteria.
KSNV-TV reports that the Mount Charleston Lodge restaurant is undergoing further testing for water contamination. In the meantime, it is boiling water and serving bottled water to customers.
Mount Charleston Lodge restaurant manager Thomas Schneekloth says there are postings on the door about the positive bacteria test.
He says he has not had any problems in eleven years of working at the restaurant, but is taking precautions just in case.
Mark Bergtholdt of the Southern Nevada Health District says the second testing results are expected Friday. If they come back negative, the department will consider the water clean. If they are positive, additional investigation will be necessary.
