DRINKING WATER WARNING RESOLVED

Tooele City

BOIL ORDER ADVISORY LIFTED

The Division of Drinking water has lifted the boil order issued on April 16, 2021 and the drinking water system has returned to normal service.

Tooele City collected follow-up samples on April 16, 2021 and April 17, 2021 in the Loma Vista and Skyline Ridge subdivisions and all samples were absent of coliform and E. coli. These sample results show the drinking water meets regulator standards and is safe to drink.

For more information, please contact Steve Evans at (435) 843-2148. 

General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1(800) 426-4791.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by Tooele City.                                                                                                      

Water System ID#: 23004.  Date distributed: April 18, 2021

 


Update: Sunday, April 18, 2021 11:55 a.m. The boil advisory is still in effect for the Loma Vista and Skyline Ridge subdivisions. We expect to have water sample results back today. We will post with updated information as soon as it is available to us.


Update April 17, 2021 1:00 p.m.:  The drinking water boil advisory is still in effect for the Loma Vista and Skyline Ridge subdivisions until further notice. 


DRINKING WATER WARNING

Tooele City

BOIL ORDER ADVISORY

FOR TOOELE CITY RESIDENTS IN THE LOMA VISTA AND SKYLINE RIDGE SUBDIVISIONS

Affected area includes residences east of Droubay Road, west of Canyon Overlook Drive, north of Skyline Drive, and those on 270 South.  Please see the map below.

There was damage to a water line in your area.  We believe we have the impact isolated and we are taking precautions and testing to ensure water quality.  In the meantime, please be advised that you should boil your water before drinking or cooking with it until further notice.  If your water has discoloration or cloudiness, open your fixtures and let water run until the water is clear.

What should I do if I live in this area?

•DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for three minutes, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

•E. coli are bacteria whose presence indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes. Microbes in these wastes can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some of the elderly and people with severely compromised immune systems.

•The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice. People at increased risk should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.

 

For more information, please contact 435-843-2148.
