Boil Water Notice Lifted for Montecito

For Montecito Water District areas with a canceled boil-water notice, the Public Health Department has information on purifying tap water or wells.

“In the event discolored water makes it to your faucets, you will need to flush your water system by turning on an outdoor faucet or opening the cold water faucet in your bathtub and running the water full force until the water runs clear,” the water district said Wednesday.

“If the water looks cloudy or dirty, you should not drink it. Flush your plumbing until the water appears clear and the water quality returns to normal. If your property has point-of-use water treatment systems such as reverse osmosis, water softeners, under-the-sink filtration, etc., follow manufacturer’s recommended procedures or contact your plumbing or water treatment professional regarding the care of your treatment system.”

Though commercial areas in and near Montecito have reopened, restaurants and other food facilities were not allowed to serve fresh food while the boil-water notice was in effect.

Coast Village Road and the Upper Village commercial areas both had their boil-water notices canceled Wednesday.
