The City of Davis Public Works Department will be performing water main flushing in East Davis to prepare the water system to receive treated surface water from the Davis Woodland Surface Water Supply Project. The flushing program follows industry best practices. Crews will be flushing water mains in East Davis beginning August 29.
Short-term effects may include slight pressure drops, air in the lines or discolored water. The discoloration is temporary and typically clears within a few hours. Flushed water does not pose a health/safety risk. It is recommended that residents check their water before use, especially prior to doing laundry, as laundry may become stained. If you notice any of these effects, we recommend running cold water for a short time to remove any loosened sediment in the pipeline, possibly saving the water for plants or other landscape needs. If your water does not clear, please call (530) 757-5686. If you have any additional questions, please e-mail PWWeb@CityofDavis.org
