Boil water order issued for Cave Rock community on Lake Tahoe East Shore

A precautionary boil water notice has been issued for the Cave Rock Water System in Douglas County due to treatment plant shutdown, computer failure, and a data logging loss at the Cave Rock Water Treatment Plant.

Because of this, Douglas County is required to hang precautionary boil water notices until bacteriological samples are gathered.

Once this process is complete and samples are clean, the boil water notices — which were issued Monday — will be rescinded.

The boil water notice is only precautionary at this time but officials said they are taking the proper steps to ensure the safety of customers.
