The County of San Diego, Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has lifted the Boil Water Order for Mountain Empire High School located at 3305 Buckman Springs Road, Pine Valley, CA 91962 effective immediately.
The drinking water system had tested present 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 distribution system has been disinfected by a Certified Operator and follow-up water samples confirm the absence of coliform bacteria in the water supply.
