Dear Resident/Business Owner:
West Valley Water District (WVWD) is providing a notice of an emergency water shutdown in your area on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The reason for the planned shutdown is to install new water main and valves in the area in order to allow us to better respond during emergencies. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and will work as quickly as possible to restore water service in your area.
The streets affected by the shutdown include:
– El Rivino Rd – from Cedar Ave to Hall Ave
– Cactus Ave – from Cricket Dr to El Rivino Rd
– Hall Ave – from El Rivino Rd to Brown Ave
Here are a few things you can do in advance to ease the inconvenience of the planned water shutdown:
– Fill up your bath tub or five gallon buckets so you can refill your toilets for flushing
– Fill clean pitchers with water and place in the refrigerator for drinking
As part of our commitment to public health and safety, we always perform a thorough flushing of the water system and test the water prior to water service restoration to ensure it meets or exceeds state and federal standards. After service is restored, you may need to flush your internal plumbing to eliminate air from the lines and eliminate discoloration or a milky appearance from the water. To do this, run your bathtub(s) faucet until the water is clear, then run the rest of your water faucets until the water is clear. Should this not clarify the water, please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions at (909) 875-1804.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience as we work to ensure that the water system is maintained properly to continue to deliver quality water to you.
