Boil Water Notice for all Pinto Customers

August 13th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

Pinto Water Utility has issued a boil water notice for the next 48 hours for all Pinto customers due to e coli bacteria being found in the water system. Boiled our bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills the bacteria and other organisms in the water.  Pinto Water Utility continues to flush the system and additional testing to check for the bacteria is being performed. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by bacteria and other diseas causing organisms are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
