Boil water order issued for Butterfield Ranch water supply system

The water supply system has tested positive for E. coli bacteria.

JULIAN, Calif .– A boil water advisory was issued for the mobile home and recreational vehicle community of Butterfield Ranch on Saturday, county health officials said.

The water supply system, which has tested positive for E. coli bacteria, supplies water to 313 connections, including 75 sites for mobile homes, 233 sites for motor homes, an office with a store, a pavilion and three swimming pools.

The community is located at 14925 Great Southern Overland in Julian.

The presence of the E. coli bacteria indicates that the water may be contaminated with human or animal waste, according to San Diego County spokeswoman Elaine Villena. Health effects may include diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headache, or other symptoms.

The bacteria may pose an increased risk to the health of infants, young children, some elderly people, and people with severely compromised immune systems.

The Boil Water Order has been issued by the San Diego County Department of Health and Environmental Quality to ensure that all water used is free of bacterial contamination and will remain in effect until ‘laboratory results confirm the absence of bacteria in the water supply.

For more information on the order, residents were asked to call Kyle Newman, Butterfield Ranch Community Supervisor, at 760-267-3657.
