MINDEN, NV - Indian Hills General Improvement District has been put on a BOILED WATER NOTICE by the Bureau of Safe Drinking Water for bad bacteriological sample results taken on Wednesday August 8th.
Residents are instructed not to use the water for brewing coffee, washing food products, teeth brushing or other uses which would allow water to be consumed orally. Water-use for cleaning, showering, hand washing with soap, toilet flushing etc. is deemed permissible.
The District's chlorine residual has reached below normal levels and work is ongoing on the chlorine injection system to determine the cause of the lower residuals. Water well samples will be taken tomorrow.
The town of Minden will also be required to sample their wells Friday as they are now the District's main water source.
