April 3, 2017 Announcements No Comments

As of 1:30 p.m. Monday April 3, water service was restored to businesses and homes in the Arnold area. Service was temporarily disrupted starting at 8 a.m. Monday to allow for a waterline tie-in, which is part of the ongoing Reach 3A Pipeline Replacement Project (see initial post about the planned outage here).

After constructions projects such as this, it is common for residents and businesses to experience discolored water. It’s important to remember that even if the water is discolored, it is completely safe to drink and poses no health risk. However, the District recommends that customers avoid washing loads of laundry using bleach when experiencing discolored water, because it can lead to clothing being stained. CCWD staff members are flushing the main water system using fire hydrants to help remove any discolored water that may exist. If customers do experience discolored water and would like to flush their personal plumbing systems, they can turn on an outside faucet at the lowest point of their properties and let it run until the water turns clear.

Residential customers that may be impacted:

  • All of Mill Woods
  • Sequoia Street
  • Fir Street
  • Cedar Street
  • Part of Dunbar Road
  • Part of Maple Street
  • Parts of Lilac Part
