MARIN COUNTY (KRON) — A warning for Marin County residents Monday night, as officials have found evidence of E. coli in the Marin Headlands water supply.
They are warning residents to boil water before drinking it. The National Park Service is still searching for the source of the contamination.
About 90 water hookups are affected by the bacteria, including the Capehart housing area.
Drinking fountains throughout the Headlands are wrapped in plastic to prevent water access.
E. coli can lead to stomach or intestinal illness.
The National Park Service will have hand sanitizer, or hand washing stations will be available in public restrooms until the water tests come back without any signs of contamination.
