 2020 Watermain Flushing Program


The District performs cleaning of all watermains on a four-year cycle. District staff will be flushing water mains beginning March 16, 2020 for approximately 8 weeks. The areas included in this year’s program are:

  • Hatzic
  • Downtown Mission
  • South of 7th Street, from Turner Street to Shook Street

The hours of work are between 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. The process may create temporary discoloration or debris in water as the water mains are cleaned to remove any accumulated debris. Should you encounter temporary water quality issues please turn off the tap for 15 minutes; then run your bathtub tap or outside tap until the water runs clear.

Only residences with full water interruption will receive a letter from District staff advising of the scheduled interruption. Notices will be delivered door-to-door and a day in advance of the scheduled cleaning. Please be advised, if you do not receive a letter, you can expect your water service to remain on for the duration of the project.
