ORO GRANDE, Calif. – After a water scare and swift measures taken to protect the students and staff at Riverside Prep Schools, the San Bernardino County officials said the water is safe to drink.
All water restrictions for the Oro Grande community have been lifted and school will resume for Riverside Prep students on Monday, March 11, 2019. “The well that triggered the boil water notice has been temporarily removed from service,” officials said. “The water quality sampling results taken within the water distribution system before and after issuing the boil water notice have all come back negative for any harmful bacteria; therefore, you may resume normal consumptive uses of the potable water that is supplied to your home.”
As a precaution, additional testing was done at the Riverside Prep campuses and all of the results were returned negative. “We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we addressed this matter and took steps to ensure the safety of our students and staff,” Riverside Preparatory School officials said.
