VICTORVILLE- Calif. – The City of Victorville shared with residents that the E.Coli found in a well does not serve Victorville customers.
The affected well that tested positive by San Bernardino County for E.Coli bacteria serves the community of Oro Grande. “This well does not serve customers of the Victorville Water District,” Victorville City officials said. “Drinking water delivered to properties served by the Victorville Water District is free of contamination.”
The City of Victorville tests water quality in its wells and water distribution system weekly. All tests conducted late last week came back normal. “The City of Victorville has two wells located in proximity to the contaminated well operated by the County of San Bernardino,” City of Victorville said in an official statement. “One of these wells has been offline for the past one and a half months for maintenance. Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Victorville has taken the second well offline; and we will perform water quality testing before returning this well to service.”
People who receive water service from San Bernardino County and have questions about their water, may want to contact the County at 1-800-554-0565.
