Madera County Community Water Warning Information

Madera County Community Water Warning Information

Residents of the Oakhurst Mobile Home Estates are being told to avoid their tap water because it may be contaminated with fecal coliform.
Press Release:

OAKHURST MOBILE HOME ESTATES water is possibly contaminated

Failure to follow this advisory could result in illness.

An unknown substance has been added to the drinking water supplied by the OAKHURST MOBILE HOME ESTATES due to a recent Cross Connection at water line from a septic system. The California Department of Health Services, Madera County Health Department, and OAKHURST MOBILE HOME ESTATES Water System are advising residents to NOT USE THE TAP WATER FOR DRINKING AND COOKING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

What should I do?

· DO NOT DRINK YOUR TAP WATER---USE ONLY BOTTLED WATER. Bottled water should be used for all drinking (including baby formula and juice), brushing teeth, washing dishes, making ice and food preparation until further notice.

· DO NOT TRY AND TREAT THE WATER YOURSELF. Boiling, freezing, filtering, adding chlorine or other disinfectants, or letting water stand will not make the water safe.

We will inform you when tests show that the water is safe again. We expect to resolve the problem within the next couple of days.
