QUINCY, Calif. - The American Valley Community Services District has issued a boil water advisory for customers in Quincy.

Officials said failure to follow the advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness. However, this advisory does not apply to customers in east Quincy. 

The district issued the following statement:

"Recent samples collected from our distribution system showed the presence of total coliform bacteria and E.Coli bacteria. Therefore, the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water and the American Valley Community Services District (CSD) are advising customers in the community of Quincy to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and food preparation."

In a post from the Plumas County Sheriff's Office, authorities encourage customers to boil water for one minute and let it cool before using.
