Boil-water notice lifted, food businesses in and around Outlets at Tejon reopening

UPDATE | A spokeswoman with Kern County Public Health Services said Thursday that the boil-water notice was lifted, and they're in the process of reopening the impacted businesses.


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) -- Businesses in and around The Outlets at Tejon are either closed or prohibited from preparing and serving food due to a boil-water notice from Cal Water, according to Kern County Public Health Services.

The businesses that remain open are allowed to serve packaged food.

Department spokeswoman Michelle Corson said no contaminants were found in the water, but the line lost pressure and made the water susceptible to possible contamination. A truck hit a water valve Tuesday night, she said.

The impacted businesses are:

  • Microtel Hotel
  • Black Bear Diner
  • Caterpillar
  • TA Travel Center
  • Subway
  • Burger King
  • Popeyes
  • Baja Fresh
  • Habit Burger
  • Carl's Jr.

  • Blue Beacon truck wash
  • China Max
  • Wing Stop
  • Juicy Burger
  • Tony’s Pizza
  • Dewar’s Candy
  • Auntie Anne’s
  • Don Pericos

She said the county has a team on site to ensure businesses follow boil-water notice.
