City Of Sacramento Issues Water Boil Advisory For Pocket Neighborhood

UPDATE: Voluntary Boil Water Advisory No Longer In Effect For Pocket Neighborhood

The city of Sacramento has issued a water boil advisory for the Pocket neighborhood, which lies between I-5 and the Sacramento River a few miles south of downtown.
The city's Utilities Department says it issued the advisory as a "precautionary measure" after a routine weekly water sampling in the area found the presence of bacteria.
The city says it is not aware of any health issues but is advising residents to bring water to a boil and let it continue boiling for one minute before drinking it or cooking with it.
Boiling water kills off any bacteria and other organisms that may be present.
The city notes that it is issuing a boil advisory, not a boil order.
Residents will be notified when the advisory is lifted.
