We routinely monitor your water for turbidity (cloudiness). This tells us whether we are effectively filtering the water supply. A water sample taken 1-22-24 showed turbidity levels of variations of 1.0-4.0 turbidity units. This is above the standard of 0.3 turbidity units. Because of these high levels of turbidity, there is an increased chance that the water may contain disease-causing organisms.

What should I do?

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used ·

  • Drinking
  • Brushing teeth
  • Washing fruits and vegetables
  • Preparing food and baby formula
  • Making ice
  • Cleaning food contact surfaces

You can do other normal things like washing clothes and showering. Just before ingesting the water you MUST boil the water.

Turbidity has no health effects. However, turbidity can interfere with disinfection and provide a medium for microbial growth. Turbidity may indicate the presence of disease causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites, which can cause symptoms such as nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches. People with severely compromised immune systems, infants, and some elderly may be at increased risk. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.

The symptoms above are not caused only by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice.

What happened? What is being done?

What is happening; we believe our flocculation mixer is running too fast to create a floc. A Floc is when chemicals coagulate on solids in the water and cause sedimentation of foreign debris which is then separated from the water. The water in the water tank will floc for a short while then it will stop causing the turbidity to climb back up. We are looking into an electrical variable speed switch to bring the rpm down of the mixer. We also have slowed down the flow to see if that will help create floc. We have brought our chlorine up to help with any disinfection for the higher than normal turbidity. Also we have called the Oregon Association of Water Utilites (OAWU) for assistance. We are unsure of how long this process may take. We will update everyone through email or social media ie. Facebook (World Famous Langlois, Langlois Water District Community) as status changes or once we are off the boil notice.

For more information, please contact Kevin Gleason at 805-889-9836 or 94322 1st st. General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1(800) 426-4791 or the Oregon Department of Human Services Drinking Water Program at (971) 673-0405.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by Langlois Water District. State Water System ID#: 41-00466. Date distributed: Jan 22, 2024

Langlois Water update as of 3:15 Pm 30 Nov 23

Langlois Water update as of 3:15 Pm 30 Nov 23


Langlois Water update as of 315 Pm 30 Nov 23. The water system is flushed and cleared from the shutoff in the line to the water plant. The plant continues to make water. We are at 1/3 of capacity now. With the flushing and community use it's going to take a while to catch up. The coliform test is submitted to McGowan Clinical Lab. They said they will have the results back to us by 2pm tomorrow. I asked for expedited results if possible due to our situation. They said they would try.

Bottom line, the water is on, it will take some time for the folks at higher elevation to receive water again. It is a gravity fed system. We are just waiting for the test results and State approval to lift the Boil Water Notice.

Hey now! Just got off phone with Oregon Department of Agriculture and temperatures on Strada espresso machine (200F) and our drip machine (195F) are good to bypass boil notice when it takes effect. We will be doing more extensive hand washing with utensils when boil notice is on. All good! Dang! We do appreciate the folks that keep our water system up and running, thank you Langois Water District!!

Dan from Langlois commented "We are making water all night tonight and are confident we can perform the flush in the morning."
-- If not, consult your urologist.   Nice one Dan!

Sorry for the late update: Your's truely the web dude has been working for Langlois Water part time and it's been a busy few days.  Things are looking up though we just have a few regulation hoops to get through, but the water is flowing.

Important notice to Langlois Water District Customers - UPDATE!

Important notice to Langlois Water District Customers - UPDATE!


The repair to the valve and mainline have been made. A big shout out and thank you to Bandon Water Utilities folks!!
Update. You should all have water available now However, the Boil Water Notice is in effect and we ask you to conserve until tomorrow morning. The mainline was not opened up as part of the repair (they were able to patch it). As with all water systems algae etc. collect inside all pipes, when water pressure is lowered or disrupted it causes those particulates to break free and wash through the system.
The leak was significant enough to pretty much drain the main storage tank before it could be fixed, as a result we must create enough processed water to fill the main storage tank to a level where we can safely flush the whole system. We are making water all night tonight and are confident we can perform the flush in the morning around 8-9 Am. After which all users should run their home systems to ensure clear water is present. Once all water tests results from the established points come back clean and approved, the boil water notice will be lifted by the State at which time we will pass the info to you.
Thank You,
*Important notice to Langlois Water District Customers***
Langlois Water District is addressing a leaking blow out valve on the mainline below the water plant. There is no contamination to the water supply at this point. We are contacting contractors who can repair this valve leak and are awaiting responses from them so we may establish a date and time for repair. Once that is established A temporary shut off of water service will be required with a boil water notice. We will post a hard copy notice at the market, library, post office and office door. Electronic information will be posted through this website and Langlois Water District Thank you.
