Water advisory ends for McKenna subdivision

Residents of the Whitewater Estates subdivision in McKenna no longer have to boil their tap water,  the McKenna Water District said today.

Lab tests show the water meets safe drinking water standards.
The McKenna Water District, working with the state Department of Health, issued a boil-water advisory on Monday after a water line broke and the subdivision lost water pressure. When water pressure is lost, bacteria and other contaminants could enter the water system.
The broken line has been repaired, and water district staff disinfected and flushed the water lines. Water samples taken from throughout the subdivision’s distribution system were tested and found to be free of coliform bacteria.
The advisory affected the 150 homes in the Whitewater Estates subdivision, which is west of State Route 507 and north of the Chehalis Western railroad tracks in the Pierce County community.
Customers who have questions can call the Water District at 360-458-5252.
