Boil order issued for part of Pleasant Grove after E. coli detected in sample
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — A section of Pleasant Grove has been placed under a boil order advisory after E. coli was detected in a water sample.
City officials said the testing was done after a residence in the Battle Creek Zone tested positive for coliform bacteria during a routine monthly testing process of the city’s culinary water system.
“To protect the public’s safety and pursuant to the requirements of the state department of drinking water, the city must issue the boil order to all utility customers within the Battle Creek service area,” officials said Wednesday.
The city has chlorinated and flushed the water system in the affected area and conducted additional testing. Officials said the boil order will remain in effect through Friday evening, at the earliest.
A local water testing and research firm is offering free filtered water to residents that live within the boil order area.
