The Bureau of Safe Drinking Water issued a precautionary boil water order this morning for residents of Oasis Mobile Home Park while contractors make repairs to a leak in the system.

Letters from the county’s building department were hand-delivered to Oasis residents this morning notifying them of the order.

Boil water before comsuming

Residents are urged to not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring the water to a boil, let it boil for one minute and cool before using it for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation. Bottled water may also be used until the boil water notice is lifted.

The leak was discovered by the Churchill County Road Department on the evening of June 1 and initial inspections of the system were completed over the weekend. On Monday, the county building department initiated the “Call Before You Dig” process and following its 72-hour hold, repairs began this morning.

Water to the mobile home park was turned off the morning of June 6 for line repairs which are expected to be completed by the end of the day. Once repairs are completed, the system will be disinfected, flushed and samples will be collected on June 6 and 7 to ensure the return of safe drinking water to residents.

Residents will be informed when test results are negative and they no longer need to boil the water. Final analysis results are expected on the afternoon of Saturday, June 8. Once results are confirmed, the boil order will be lifted.

For more information

Residents with any questions may call the Churchill County Building Department at 428-0264 and ask for Marie Henson.
