SYSTEM-WIDE CHLORINATION OF THE SIERRA BROOKS WATER SYSTEM
A routine water sample taken Wednesday, October 14, 2020 had a positive result for coliform. This is likely the result of some dirt in the water system. Since several of these tests had positive results for total coliform this past two weeks, as a precautionary measure the water system will be chlorinated to eliminate the cause of any additional positive tests. At this time there is no health risk and no need to take any special precautions for water use. It is possible that you may notice a slight odor of chlorine or a slight aftertaste in the water. If you have a hypersensitivity to chlorine you may want to take measures to reduce water use for several days. This is only a temporary situation and should dissipate quickly once the system is completely flushed after chlorination. If you have any questions or need additional information please contact me at (530) 289-3201.
