The city of Los Banos is sending out notices to residents about their drinking water.

The notice said the water system has levels of hexavalent chromium above the drinking water standard. The alert also said there is no immediate risk and residents do not need to use an alternative water supply.

However, it goes on to say hexavalent chromium can increase cancer risk if consumed.

The city said it is trying to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
