The City of Brookings has released the following update concerning the Boil Water Order issued on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

The Boil Water Order remains in affect for residents on Eastwood, Westwood, Rustic, Pacific View and Old County Road above Pacific Terrace Drive. At this time no further residents are affected.

The Brookings Tidewater Water Tank is experiencing a loss in water pressure due to a water service line break. Water for Brookings residents in the Eastwood, Westwood, Rustic, Pacific View and Old County Road above Pacific Terrace Drive may be contaminated. Even if you didn’t lose water pressure, your tap water may still be contaminated.

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, BOIL YOUR TAP WATER BEFORE DRINKING. Bring all water to a rolling boil for one minute. Let it cool before using. You should use boiled or purchased bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

The City of Brookings Public Works Department is working to repair the problem.
