PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT: CANCELLATION OF BOIL WATER ORDER

Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable.
Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

On December 8, 2016 35 Out of Town Water Customers were notified of the need to boil/disinfect all tap water used for drinking and cooking purposes. The Town of Yountville – Public Works: Utility Operations Division in conjunction with the California State Water Resource Control Board has determined that, through abatement of health hazard and comprehensive testing of the water, this water is safe to drink. It is no longer necessary to boil tap water or to consume only bottled water. 

As an additional precaution the Town of Yountville, Utility Operations Department recommends that before you resume normal use of the water at your property, that you thoroughly flush your internal plumbing to ensure you have clean water in your home.  Below are a few steps you should take to flush your internal plumbing.

1. Open a hose bib or faucet at the furthest point from where the water enters your home. (A hose bib in the rear of the home is ideal.)
2. Once you have water flowing through your pipes, open as many faucets throughout the home as possible.  (Using your bath tubs will help increase the flow.)
3. After 5-10 minutes of flushing you should have introduced clean water into your pipes.  
Please be sure to discard any ice from your icemakers and replace any internal filters you may have connected to your potable water.  

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this process. Should you have more questions, or need additional information, please contact:
