Additional warnings: 

  • Do not allow pets or livestock to consume tap water

  • Limit use of hot water

  • Use a dishwasher to wash dishes and use the air-dry setting 

  • Wash clothing in cold water

  • Do not take baths 

  • Do not use hot tubs or swimming pools 

Limit use of water for clean-up of properties and follow Butte County recommendations for protective clothing when on property which you can find HERE.
