Boil Water Order Issued for Louis Stelzer County Park

[Updated 9 a.m. on July 2, 2015: The boil water order was lifted.]

A boil water order was issued Tuesday for Louis Stelzer County Park Water System after the drinking water was found to have total coliform bacteria, the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health announced. 

The Water System serves the Lakeside park’s ranger station, volunteer pad, park drinking fountains and public restrooms.

The drinking water system has tested present for total coliform bacteria. 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 will remain in effect until tests confirm the absence of bacteria in the water supply.
