Residents who are customers of Idyllwild and Fern Valley water districts do not need to boil their water following the Mountain Fire.
Both districts treat the water before it enters the distribution system. Further, IWD’s water comes from wells, not streams, therefore is free of ash and other debris.
Fern Valley does divert some water, but the stream flows have diminished and is using a higher proportion of well water; but its water supply is treated first.
The only restrictions on water applied to the Apple Canyon, Bonita Vista and Zen Mountain Center areas.
