Boil-water advisory issued in Hood River

Tap water

HOOD RIVER, Ore. (AP) -- A boil-water advisory is in effect for water customers in Hood River after “potentially harmful bacteria” was found in the supply on Sunday evening.

KOIN reports that a loss of water pressure in the distribution system caused the potential for bacteria to infiltrate the supply and could cause sickness for those with weakened immune systems.

City officials said customers should boil their water for at least 1 minute, then let it cool before bottling it.

Hood River officials expect to resolve the issue within 48 hours.
