Wednesday, August 3: Update
The city continues to be under Stage 1 water restrictions. Please familiarize yourself with these restrictions and act accordingly.
Engineering reports were filed with Aquatera on July 29 and — barring complications — the utility company anticipates cleanup and final testing to be completed by Friday, August 5. City water continues to be safe for consumption. The initial contamination was caused by a small diesel spill on July 14. The diesel was contained to the Central Station reservoir and never made it into the distribution system. Aquatera performed several water sample tests from various sites throughout the city following the incident; all tests came back negative for the contaminating agent.
Updates will be provided by the City through the City’s website and official social media channels. To view past updates and read Stage 1 water restriction guidelines, please read the City's press release HERE.
