Crooked River Ranch residents are notified their drinking water could be contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria.  At the state health officials direction, the Crooked River Ranch Water Company "boil-water" notification was issued Thursday to the 1500 residents through the CCR Water Company website. 

 

Water Company Manager Frank Day told our news partner, News Channel 2, the problem arose on Tuesday when a large pipe burst, sending water everywhere and causing a water outage for about 12 hours until the pipe was repaired. 

 

One resident says his wife and a neighbor experienced diarrhea symptoms after Tuesday’s water problem, but didn’t make the connection until they say a sign at the entrance to CCR.

 

Day says they have done their best to contact all CCR residents, but because the area is so large, it’s been a struggle.

 

A message on the CCR Water Company phone number says the advisory is "precautionary" and would be in place until new water testing results after flushing the system.  Day says new tests results should be available  Friday.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
