LEBEC, CA (Wednesday, April 4, 2017 at 10:11 a.m.)—Lebec County Water District has lifted its “Boil Water” notice, which had been put in place yesterday after the system lost pressure in the “State Zone”.

LEBEC, CA (Wednesday, April 3, 2017 at 10:59 a.m.)—Lebec County Water District reports that water service has been restored for its State Zone system. All customers with the State Zone are required to boil their water before drinking it until further notice.

LEBEC, CA (Wednesday, April 3, 2017 at 9:45 a.m.)—Lebec County Water District has notified the public that its “State Zone” (from Landfill Road south to Frazier Mountain Park Road, including the business district) has lost water pressure and there is currently no water service in that area.

When water service returns in approximately one hour, LCWD said the state requires a Boil Water Notice to be issued.

LCWD said it will deliver a notice to affected businesses and residences. They ask everyone to follow the directions on the notice, which require you to boil the water, if you are going to consume it, until further notice. LCWD said it usually takes 24 hours to rescind a boil water notice.

LCWD asks that customers call 661.248.6872 if there are questions.
