San Diego County Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has issued a boil water order for Oak Grove Complex at 37560 Highway 79 in Warner Springs, effective immediately.
The drinking water system tested present for total coliform bacteria and absent for E. coli, the county reports Wednesday afternoon.
Total coliform bacteria can come from soils and other sources in the environment and can indicate a problem with the water supply system. The boil water order was issued to ensure all water used is free from contamination, stated a news release from the county. It will remain in effect until the distribution system has been disinfected and additional samples confirm the absence of bacteria in the water supply.
