The County Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has issued a Boil Water Order for the San Pasqual Academy water system located at 17701 San Pasqual Valley Road in Escondido, effective immediately.
The small drinking water system has tested positive for total coliform bacteria and absent for E. coli. Total coliform bacteria can come from soils and other sources in the environment and can indicate a problem with the water supply system.
The Boil Water Order was issued to ensure all water used is free from contamination. The Boil Water Order will remain in effect until the distribution system has been disinfected and additional samples confirm the absence of bacteria in the water supply.
For more information on the Boil Water Order, please contact Milica Kaludjerski at (858) 694-2718.
