As of noon, January 10, 2019, The Bilma Public Utility District has canceled the boil water advisory to our customers. There is no need to boil water supplied by the Bilma PUD.
As the Bilma operator expected, Bilma PUD water was found safe to drink in the latest sample. The operator further feels Bilma water was always safe to drink and a testing sample was inaccurate.
While the operator feels Bilma water was safe, customers should make their own decision as to whether to dispose of ice, flush water throughout home water lines or replace water filters.
We will continue to review our sample and lab process and improve our communication to residents and customers. We apologize for the inconvenience of the boil water notice.
