The County Department of Environmental Health has issued a boil water order for Clover Flat Elementary School after testing showed coliform bacteria in its drinking water system.

The school is located at 39639 Old Highway 80 in the East County community of Boulevard. 

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.

The order will remain in effect until the distribution system has been disinfected and additional samples confirm the absence of bacteria in the water supply.
