Brian Head’s boil water advisory expected to be lifted soon

June 25, 2019

BRIAN HEAD, Utah (AP) — The boil water advisory for the small Utah town of Brian Head after E. coli bacteria was detected in drinking water is expected to be lifted soon.

Town Manager Bret Howser said Tuesday that tests on the water supply have come back clean.

He says state officials need to give the OK to lift the boil advisory and that could come on Wednesday.

Last Thursday, the town instructed residents to drink bottled water or boil their water for at least one minute before use.

Howser says the ski resort town has had high runoff this year and dirty water likely got into some springs.

He says the town switched to well water and the water supply has been flushed and chlorinated to eliminate the bacteria.
