Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.



The Clear Creek Community Services District had 14” water mainline rupture Wednesday, November 9th 2023.  This caused a portion of the District to depressurize.  As a safety precaution, we are asking customers to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes. Affected areas are All of Happy Valley Rd South of Lassen Ave to Gwendo Ln, Oly Way, Bright Path on both sides of HVRD, and all of Coyote Ln (including side streets) east of HVRD.


DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST.  Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice.  Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms that may be in the water.

  • An alternative method of disinfection for residents that are not able to boil their water is to use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach. To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using.  A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.
  • Water disinfection tablets may also be used by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Continue boiling your water until you receive notification from us that the water is safe to drink.


  • You may refer to the Clear Creek CSD webpage for updated information.  https://clearcreekcsd.org/


Once we confirm that the water is safe for drinking and cooking, we will inform you that boiling your water will no longer be needed.  We expect this advisory to be in effect for at least two days.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).
