The County of San Diego, Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has issued a Boil Water Order and Public Notification for the Tecate Vista Mutual Water Company located at 444 Highway 188, Tecate, CA 91980 effective immediately.  This public water system serves two residences, commercial businesses and the Tecate Mission School.

The drinking water system has 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 Boil Water Order will remain in effect until the distribution system has been disinfected and additional samples confirm the absence of bacteria in the water supply.
