Boil water warning lifted for Camp Richardson, surrounding area

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The boil water warning that put in place for Camp Richardson and surrounding areas Friday, Sept. 8 has finally been lifted.

The warning was put in place after e.coli bacteria was found in the water supply. According to the State Water Resource Control Board, a tank was not disinfected after it was cleaned on Aug. 22, leading to the spread of the bacteria.

Water from the area is now safe to use again.
