Boil Water Order Lifted for KQ Ranch Water System in Julian

A Boil Water Order issued for KQ Ranch water system in Julian was lifted Tuesday.

The order was issued on Friday after contaminated water was found in the drinking water at KQ Ranch.

The water system is located at 449 KQ Ranch Road in Julian and serves the KQ Ranch Campground.

According to the County of San Diego, Department of Environmental Health (DEH), E.coli and total coliform bacteria was found in the drinking water system--indicating the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes.

Symptoms from the bacteria include cramps, nausea, headaches or diarrhea.

DEH said E.coli can be especially risky for infants, young children, the elderly and anyone with a compromised immune system.
