DES MOINES, Wash. (AP) - Health officials are telling about 5,000 water customers in the Des Moines-Normandy Park area to boil their water until tests show it is clear of E. coli.
KOMO reports bottled water is provided for Des Moines Elementary School until the tap water is safe.
Health inspectors shut down restaurants in the area Saturday night after the bacteria showed up in tests of water samples from King County Water District 54.
