CITY OF YONCALLA DRINKING WATER WARNING

Updated: Oct 6

Boil Your Water Before Using Due to loss of water pressure in the distribution system on 9/29/2022, potentially harmful bacteria could be present in the water supply. If these bacteria are present, they could make you sick and are a particular concern for people with weakened immune systems. The affected area is limited, but if you have received this notice directly from your water provider, you are in the affected area. Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Customers should bring water to a rolling boil for 1 full minute, allow the water to cool before using, and store the cooled water in a clean container with a cover. Customers should use boiled water that has cooled or bottled water for:


· Drinking · Brushing teeth · Washing fruits and vegetables · Preparing food and baby formula · Making ice · Cleaning food contact surfaces


We will inform you when tests show no bacteria, and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within two weeks.

This boil water advisory is a precaution. To limit risk to health, customers should follow the instructions contained in this advisory.
