SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. — A Boil Water Advisory has been issued for residents living in the Clear Creek Community and Centerville area on Friday.
The Clear Creek Community Services District said their drinking water treatment plant lost power during the storm on Thursday night, March 9, resulting in a filter valve malfunction. The issue reportedly caused untreated water to enter the storage tank and distribution system.
As a safety precaution, the district asks residents use bottled water or boil tap water for drinking and cooking purposed until further notice.
The Centerville Community Services District receives their drinking water from Clear Creek Community Services District's water treatment plant. As a result, the valve malfunction is also affecting customers in the Centerville area. Residents are also asked to use bottle water, or boil tap water, for drinking and cooking.
HOW TO PREP WATER FOR DRINKING/COOKING:
The water district says their filter plant is now operating normally. However, they expect the boil water advisory to last for at least seven days.
