HOOD RIVER, Ore. – Crystal Springs Water District is asking residents to immediately start boiling all drinking water taken from their public water system. They issued a warning Wednesday morning.

The district says there is a possibility of unsafe water.

Residents should boil water for drinking, making ice cubes, washing foods, brushing teeth or any other activity that involves consuming water.

The water should reach a full, rolling boil for at least five minutes before it’s safe to consume.

After it’s boiled, residents can store the water at room temperature or refrigerate it until it’s needed.

The notice is in effect until further notice.
