Test Result Shows Total Coliform Bacteria Absent in Drinking Water Supply   
  
July 28, 2012 (Portrero) -- The County of San Diego, Department of Environmental Health (DEH) has lifted the Boil Water Order for Potrero General Store and Café Water System, located at 25125 Highway 94, Potrero, CA 91963 effective immediately. 

The drinking water system had 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 distribution system has been disinfected by a Certified Operator and follow-up water samples confirm the absence of coliform bacteria in the water supply.
