CEDAR CITY, Utah — A boil order has been issued for some Cedar City residents after city officials said water samples collected Monday detected a possible E. coli contamination.
The affected area includes everything east of Main Street from 200 South to Shurtz Canyon Drive.
City officials said they were flushing and testing the system Wednesday and will do so until a 100% negative test result returns.
Mayor Maile Wilson-Edwards said the city has sent additional samples to be tested but it takes 24 hours for those results to come back.
Anyone with questions should contact the Cedar City Water Department at 435-586-2968 or city offices at 435-586-2953.
