Valve Excercising Activities in Downtown Area 2017
Residents and businesses in the Downtown area from Amador Avenue to Las Cruces Avenue and Alameda Avenue to Mesquite Street, could experience low water pressure, no water, or discolored water between 9 p.m. and midnight Tuesday, Aug. 22 through Monday, Aug. 28, while valve exercising activities are conducted.
During this time, water could become discolored due to the presence of iron and manganese. Although the water is safe to drink, City officials recommend waiting to wash laundry until after the water becomes clear.
City crews will hang door notices at least 24 hours in advance to businesses and residents possibly affected by these activities.
The discoloration should disappear within 24-hours. If it does not, residents and businesses should flush outside and/or cold-water faucets for five minutes. If the discoloration remains, call the City at 526-0500 for assistance.
