Residents urged to boil their water after reservoir is vandalized August 9, 2001, 11:00 AM ISSAQUAH Residents in the Mirrormont neighborhood near Issaquah are urged to boil their drinking water after vandals damaged an underground reservoir and left it exposed, said the Washington Water Service.

About 750 homes are under the boil order after tests revealed E-coli in one water sample.

The water service says the reservoir has been fixed and it will notify residents when its safe to drink their tap water.

Comment: I hope everyone has a good supply of water stored. I think there will be more of these incidents.
