Notice Regarding Water Line Flushing
The City’s water customers recently received a notice in their water and sewer bills regarding water line flushing. This notice was intended as a courtesy to inform water customers prior to flushing occurring. Unfortunately, an error occurred with the City’s bill processor that resulted in the notice being sent a month later than requested.
The City has adjusted the schedule for water line flushing and will now begin water line flushing in April. Flushing will only be conducted in some parts of the water system (not city-wide), and the City will provide door hangers notifying residents of flushing activities in their neighborhood prior to the activity.
The City continues to implement water use restrictions as required by the State of California in response to emergency drought conditions. For more information, click here.
