Boil Water Order remains In effect for Rafter J, Adam’s Canyon and South Park Service Center

(Jackson, Wyo.) - The Boil Water Order still remains in effect for the residents and businesses of Rafter J, Adam’s Canyon and South Park Service Center. Teton County Public Health would like to remind people in the affected areas that it is still uncertain if the water is safe to drink. Residents and businesses should still be using bottled water or boiling their water for three minutes before using. The Boil Water Order went into effect after a water main break on Highway 89 on Tuesday morning. The EPA determined that in this situation two consecutive days of safe test results are required to lift the boil water order. The process to test for bacteria, such as E.coli, in water samples requires at least 20 hours to complete. The water samples from the affected area are being tested at the Teton County Public Health EPA certified Water Lab. “It is our highest priority to resolve this issue as quickly as possible, while ensuring the health of the affected citizens is protected,” said Teton County Public Health’s Environmental Health Supervisor Mike Dart. If residents or businesses have questions they can contact Mike Dart at (307) 413-5184. A factsheet on what to do during a boil water order can be found on the Teton County Public Health webpage, Teton County Public Health will notify the public when the boil water order has been lifted over Nixle.
