Boil Advisory Issued for Beach Area at Big Creek State Park

POLK CITY – A boil advisory has been issued for the beach area at Big Creek State Park near Polk City following a water main break on Friday.

A water main break can cause the system to lose pressure creating a potential for bacteria to get into the system. The boil advisory will remain in effect until two sets of bacteria samples have been completed to determine the water is safe.

Due to the potential for bacterial contamination, it is being recommended that the water be boiled before being used for drinking or cooking or that an alternative source such as bottled water be used until further notice.
