Following the positive tests for Coliform and E. coli bacteria, the City of Lebanon issued a boil water order for potable water, effective until further notice, Safety and Security director Harry Kinne wrote in an email to campus. He said in an interview, however, that these findings will not affect Hanover and that authorities in Lebanon and West Lebanon are handling the situation.

Kinne said that he sent the email to campus to alert Dartmouth employees and graduate students who live in Lebanon or West Lebanon that the boil water order is in effect, but that there is no reason to believe that this will be a problem in Hanover.
