Baker City's boil order remains in effect for drinking, cooking, tooth brushing and washing dishes.

People not boiling tap water before these types of uses should otherwise opt for bottled water. The lower level of oocysts detected during the last round of testing doesn't necessarily mean the water is free of cryptosporidium, according to Mike Kee, city manager.
