Scotts Valley Water District will flush water mains February 28, 2017 and March 10, 2017. Please locate your home or business on the schedule below and minimize water use between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on your flushing day. To receive an email reminder, send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.svwd.org.
Flushing removes sediment from pipelines to maintain water quality. Yellow to brown discoloration may occur from dislodged sediment. Cloudy to milky discoloration may occur from entrained air. Flushing may cause varying water pressure. The water is safe to drink and complies with State Water Resources Control Board standards.
If your water is discolored, flush from a cold water fixture as far away from your water meter as possible and let the water run until clear. This could take 5-10 minutes. Do not use a hot water tap to flush, as this draws sediment into your hot water heater. Abstain from doing laundry on the day of flushing and make sure your water is clear before running your washing machine.
