INDIAN HILLS, Nev. (KRNV & -- Indian Hills General Improvement District has been put on a BOILED WATER NOTICE as of 6:00PM on Thursday August 9, by the Bureau of Safe Drinking Water for bad bacteriological sample results taken on Wednesday Aug. 8.

DO NOT 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 permissible.

The District's chlorine residual is somewhat lower than we normally keep it and we are working on the chlorine injection system to determine the cause of the lower residuals.

The District is required to send in more samples on our three small water wells that have been on line. Those samples will be taken Friday Aug.10th.

The town of Minden will also be required to sample their wells Friday as they are the District's main water source now.

Indian Hills General Improvement District regrets this inconvienence to our customers and we are doing everything we can to reslove this situation as soon as possible.

My family and I got up and did our normal routine of having coffee first thing, fed the dogs and all used used this contaimated water. Are we suppose to check the news the instant we get up to ensure the water is safe to drink. This is absurd, the Indian Hills GID are a bunch of incompetents who need to be replaced with policies and procedures that will monitor there system and have a better system of nitufyung the public. How about an automatic recorded phone message to each customer as the primary warning and then notifying the television and radio stations. Does that make sense? Indian Hills GID customer
