The new connection on the water transmission main along Aldergrove Road was successfully installed and water flow resumed at 7 a.m. on Thursday, October 16. Initial water flow from the tap may appear discolored. This does NOT pose a health risk. To lessen the chance of using discolored water, flush cold water from a faucet or hose bib outside the home prior to use. Thank you to the residents and businesses of Arcata, McKinleyville, Eureka, the Samoa Peninsula and the Humboldt Community Services District for conserving water during the intertie installation. For more information, call (707) 822-8184.Read about the water connection installation
