TUCSON, Ariz. — Farmers Water Company issued a boil water advisory to 1400 customers in the Sahuarita area.

The boil water advisory issue has now been lifted.

The advisory went into effect Thursday as a result of water sampling indicating a potential e-coli contamination in the system.

In a press release, Farmers Water said the following,

The affected areas ONLY include residents and businesses south of Quail Creek and east of the Union Pacific Railroad. The southern extent of the advisory area extends 3 miles south of Madera Canyon Road including the Silver Sky Place neighborhood. In this area, all water used for human consumption should be boiled for at least 3 minutes until further notice. Bottled water can also be used.
