___________________________________________________
Shasta County, Calif.
—According to Shasta County Department of Public Works there is a boil water advisory for Sugarloaf water customers.

On May 1st the water system lost positive pressure.

A leak drained the main line storage tank.

Repairs are in the process of being made.

It is necessary to boil your water prior to consumption until testing indicates the water is safe to drink.

Do not drink the water without boiling it first.

Bring all water to a boil and let it boil for one minute.

Boiled water should be used for drinking water, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice.

Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

This requirement will remain in place until testing indicates the water is safe to drink.

This is a standard State mandated protocol for a water system that loses positive water pressure.

It may take until May 3rd to complete the testing.
