UPDATE: Discolored Water Continues in North Napa

Residents may flush faucets if discolored water is detected.

UPDATE: 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 29, 2013.

Due to a rise in demand during the current heat wave, increased water velocity has stirred up sediment in the City's major transmission lines and some water customers may notice discolored water this afternoon or evening. Areas most likely to be affected are in north Napa but it is possible other isolated areas of the water system may be affected.

Crews are working now to flush selected areas within the distribution system. While flushing is taking place within the distribution system, the Water Division recommends customers flush their own system by opening inside and outside faucets for three to four minutes if discolored water is detected. Avoid washing any “white” laundry while the water discoloration persists. City water remains safe for all uses.

While the City Of Napa says the water remains safe for all users, I would suggest that if your water appears different in any way that you obtain a water test kit from a hardware store and check it yourself. Be sure to document date, time and location of the test source. Pics and video will help you if the water test results show unacceptable quality. Drinkers beware, don't believe everything you hear.
