SAN DIEGO–The County Department of Environmental Health Tuesday has lifted the boil water order for the KQ Ranch water system located in Julian.
The water system serves the ranch campground made up of a 211 campsites with RV hook-ups, cottage and cabin rentals, club house, restaurant, swimming pool, office, public restrooms with showers and maintenance building.
The drinking water system had tested present for E.coli and total coliform bacteria. The presence of E.coli bacteria indicated that the water may have been contaminated with human or animal wastes. Total coliform bacteria can come from soils and other sources in the environment and can indicate a problem with the water supply system. The alert was issued to ensure all water used is free from contamination.
Follow-up water samples confirm the absence of E.coli and total coliform bacteria in the water supply.
