Boil order still in effect in Teton County, Wyoming

The Boil Water Order still remains in effect for the residents and businesses of Rafter J, Adam’s Canyon and South Park Service Center. Teton County Public Health would like to remind people in the affected areas that it is still uncertain if the water is safe to drink. Residents and businesses should still be using bottled water or boiling their water for three minutes before using.

The EPA determined that in this situation two consecutive days of safe test results are required to lift the boil water order. The process to test for bacteria, such as E.coli, in water samples requires at least 20 hours to complete. The water samples from the affected area are being tested at the Teton County Public Health EPA certified Water Lab. Teton County Public Health’s Environmental Health Supervisor, Mike Dart, stated “It is our highest priority to resolve this issue as quickly as possible, while ensuring the health of the affected citizens is protected.”

If residents or businesses have questions they can contact Mike Dart at (307) 413-5184. Teton County Public Health will notify the public when the boil water order has been lifted over Nixle. To sign up to receive Nixle alerts individuals can text the word TETON_WY to 888777 or visit
