The County of San Diego detected E. Coli in the water of High Land East Trailer Park and issued a Boil Water Order Thursday.
The water system, located at 39375 Old Highway 80, may be contaminated with human or animal wastes, according to laboratory tests that confirmed the presence of E. Coli.
E. Coli infection affects the gut and can lead to urinary tract infections, pneumonia and illnesses like meningitis.
Symptoms can include diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, loss of appetite, fever and fatigue.
High Land East Trailer Park has ten recreational vehicle (RV) sites, ten spaces for mobile homes, public restrooms, showers and a swimming pool.
The Boil Water Order will remain in effect until laboratory tests confirm the absence of bacterial contamination, according to the County.
Infants, children, elderly and people with compromised immune systems are most at risk for complications with the bacteria.
The Boil Water Order is to help ensure water is not contaminated, according to a County statement.
