Boil Water Order Lifted

Water sampling has shown that households affected by the power outage Thursday no longer need to boil water.

Residents no longer need to boil water before drinking or cooking with it after an advisory to do so was lifted Sunday.

The order had been issued in the wake of a massive power outage Thursday afternoon that caused certain pumps to fail in San Diego County, possibly leading to contamination.

According to a statement from Mayor Jerry Sanders' office, testing over the past two days by state and local officials has shown that the water is safe to drink.

“I’m grateful but not surprised by how San Diegans rose to the occasion throughout the blackout and its aftermath," Sanders said in a statement. “We recognize this precaution was an inconvenience for those in the affected neighborhoods, and we’re grateful for their patience and cooperation.”
