PLUMAS COUNTY, Calif. - Plumas County Sheriff's Office is advising those in Quincy to boil water before drinking or cooking with it.

The Sheriff's office said in a press release on Facebook the advisory is due to "the presence of E.Coli bacteria in [the] water system" and that those in Quincy, who are served by American Valley Community Services District, should boil water before use.

American Valley CSD will be continuing work through the weekend to disinfect the water system.

If chlorine is smelt from water taps, the Sheriff's office advised it would be due to the disinfection process.

A source of contamination is under investigation and the Sheriff's office will inform those when the water is safe to drink.
