Boil Water Notice October 19, 2020
A boil water notice is required by the State Water Board over the next two to three weeks (14-21 days) as repairs and upgrades are made to the water plant filtration system. After the contractor begins the improvements, a more definitive timeline for the length of the repairs and duration of the boil water notice will become available. A temporary bypass system is now installed in order to maintain water service to the community. There should be no loss of water during the switch over to the temporary system. The switch over is set up to maintain pressure and flow in the system from the storage tank. This should allow restaurants and food service locations to remain open. Merced County Department of Environmental Health will provide information to food service locations.
Testing and monitoring of the water supply will be conducted to maintain quality. Recent independent lab testing results have all come back negative or absent (which is good). California voter passage of ballot propositions pertaining to water quality require Boil Water Notices for water used in drinking and food preparation to be issued by the State during these types of repairs regardless of water quality as a safety precaution.
Updated information will be posted here as it becomes available.
