The Sallal Water Association has lifted a boil water advisory after two sets of samples showed the water was safe to drink on Wednesday.

The first of these water sample tests were taken on Monday, Sept. 30, as directed by the Washington Department of Health, the association said in a release. The second set taken a day later. Both sets of tests were deemed satisfactory.

E. coli was found in the Riverpoint area of the service district in early September, and a boil water advisory put in place as of Sept. 18 — impacting about 5,000 people. The association held an event on Sept. 25, notifying members that chlorinating the water would happen for the foreseeable future.

Sallal staff confirmed that there was consistent chlorine residual throughout the water system, after they began chlorinating the previously untreated water on Sept. 20. The decision to treat the water drew mixed feelings from association members in and around North Bend.

On the release the association lays out the next steps for members. Household pipes and faucets must be flushed first, ice and ice makers sanitized with bleach and water and other appliances with direct water connections or water tanks cleaned.
