Frequently Asked Questions

The Public Works Department has been receiving reports about cloudy or discolored water. These reports are a result of the introduction of Metropolitan Water District (MWD) surface water into the City’s water distribution system. The different chemistry of water supply from the different sources and the reaction with the City’s water mains and residential pipes, can result in visual changes, including cloudiness or discoloration. This is a temporary condition resulting from a current water source blending requirement to comply with a new State of California 1,2,3,-Trichloropropane (123-TCP) Regulation. The issue will be resolved later this year when the Wilson wellhead treatment is installed and blending will no longer be required.  In order to ensure proper water circulation in these areas, the City’s Water Division increased the water flushing program on impacted areas.

For further assistance, please contact the Public Works Department at (626) 403-7240.
