E. coli (generic variety) was found in the south part of the island water supply. My neighbors are a bit concerned – see article from Bremerton Sun.
Over 1,000 homes and 1 school are under a boil water order. The type of E. coli found is NOT the type that can cause severe disease. However, the finding of it in a public water supply shows that fecal bacteria has infiltrated the aquifer (well) or has found a break in the water lines (or both).
UPDATE – Boli Water Order Lifted Today
