Golden State Water issues precautionary boil water notice for 500 Clearlake residents

CLEARLAKE, Calif. – Golden State Water Co. on Monday issued a precautionary boil water notice to approximately 500 Clearlake residents along Lakeshore Drive, north of and including San Joaquin Drive.

The precautionary boil water notice was issued due to a temporary loss of pressure in parts of the Clearlake system, resulting from the local Sulphur fire.

“When the water system loses pressure, even temporarily, it is possible for contaminants to enter the system,” said Dawn White, water quality manager for Golden State Water. “We have no evidence of anything harmful entering the system, but issued the precautionary boil water notice until test results can demonstrate that the water is safe.”

Customers who received the precautionary boil water notice are advised not to drink water without boiling it first.

Only boiled water or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation.

Tap water should be boiled for at least one minute and left to cool before using.

Golden State Water will inform impacted customers when they no longer need to boil the water.

For updates, customers are encouraged to check www.gswater.com/clearlake or call Golden State Water’s 24-hour Customer Service Center at 800-999-4033.
