Boil-water order lifted for Kingsbury, Stateline

STATELINE – The Nevada Bureau of Safe Drinking Water lifted the boil-water order affecting the Kingsbury General Improvement District water system after two days of bacteriological tests came back clear.

The lift was made late Wednesday.

The order was issued by the State of Nevada on July 27 after KGID reported a leak that allowed a trace amount of groundwater to enter the water system.

The leak was repaired the following day and the water system was purged of any remaining groundwater over the weekend. Two days of testing was required before the boil-water order could be released.

KGID provides water service to the Kingsbury Grade area, Lake Village, Nevada Beach and the Highway 50 and Kahle Drive areas of Stateline. The casino corridor was never affected by the order.

Customers having concerns about the water should contact KGID at (775) 588-3548.
