Mercer Island issues second boil-water advisory, closes all restaurants (PHOTOS)
MERCER ISLAND -- Mercer Island issued its second boil-water advisory Thursday, ordering all restaurants to close as the city's drinking water was found to be contaminated with E. Coli, health officials said. Test results indicate E. Coli and Total Coliform -- both potentially harmful to humans -- were found in the city's water Thursday. As a result, Mercer Island issued its second boil-water advisory in less than a week and requests all city residents to boil their water before drinking or use bottled water.
