PINE VALLEY (CNS) - A boil water order was issued Friday for Mountain Empire High School after total coliform bacteria was discovered in its drinking water system, county officials announced.
The order for the school at 3305 Buckman Springs Road in Pine Valley will remain in effect until the system has been disinfected and additional samples confirm there is no more bacteria in the water, according to the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health.
Total coliform bacteria can come from soils and other sources in the environment, the county advised.
