ISLAND PARK — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is issuing a boil water advisory for Shotgun North and Shotgun Kickapoo in Island Park, Idaho.

During routine drinking water distribution system monitoring, DEQ was made aware of the ongoing lack of water and pressure on May 1, 2023. At this time, it is unclear to DEQ what is causing the problem. A drop in/loss of water pressure creates conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through backflow, by backpressure, or back-siphonage. As a result, there is an increased chance that the drinking water may contain disease-causing organisms.

Until further notice from DEQ, residents and businesses connected to Shotgun North and Shotgun Kickapoo water systems are advised to boil their water for a minimum of one minute before consuming or use bottled water.
