Hydrant Flushing Notice

Water Main and Hydrant Flushing Schedule
Contact: Public Works (707) 647-4550

Public Works crews will be flushing main water lines citywide during the next few weeks. During the flushing process the crews will open hydrants and run water at high pressure to remove the sediment that naturally collects in the lines over time.

It is best to limit your water use as much as possible while the lines are flushed. During the flushing process, water may temporarily appear brown from the dislodged sediment. However, it should clear quickly and the overall clarity will be improved throughout the system. If you notice brown water, clear your lines by running the water at the outside hose bibs for a few minutes, then run the taps inside until the water is clear. The water is safe to drink but it may stain clothing, so it is advisable to avoid doing laundry. If you inadvertently do laundry while flushing is in progress and find that your clothes are discolored, call Public Works at (707) 647-4550 for a free product to remove rust stains.
