Water In Madera County Town May Be Dangerous

A community in Madera County is being told not to drink or even shower with the tap water, because it may be dangerous.

A spokesman with Madera County says the community of Parkwood had been experiencing low water pressure all weekend, but now there is no water pressure at all.

Because of this, they believe the water in that area could be contaminated and possibly dangerous to drink or use.

About 600 homes are affected by the problem.

Bottled water is being provided, but some residents say it's not enough.

Madera County officials say they are working quickly to fix the problem and hope to have everyone back on the Madera City water system by next week.
