WENATCHEE- Residents and businesses in the Olds Station area can now return to using the Chelan County PUD tap water.

A boil water advisory was put in place early Monday morning after the automated controls that operate the PUD’s water system malfunctioned and a portion of the Chelan PUD water system lost pressure.

Repairs were made immediately and water service was restored. When the water system loses pressure, there is a potential for contamination to enter the water.

It’s normal PUD procedure to send water samples out for testing to make sure the water is safe to drink and the lab results came back negative for any coliforms or other microbes. The boil water advisory affected 250 customers in the Olds Station area.
