Residents are advised to use bottled water for cooking, drinking or other uses until further notice. Bottled water is available for pick-up at the Holiday Ranch Loop Fire Station.

The water department has not isolated the problem at this time. It says it continues to flush the main lines and the water clarity is improving. Water samples are being tested for a broad range of possible organic, inorganic, metals and bacterial contaminants. It expects to have initial test results later Tuesday afternoon with a full set of results on Thursday afternoon.

Residents with discolored water are asked to call the Water Hotline at 615-5320 and leave their address and approximate date and time when discolored water was first noticed.
