The City of Arcata is asking Arcata residents to conserve water while Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District makes scheduled improvements on Wednesday, September 25.
Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District supplies Arcata with water, and they have scheduled valve replacement work at their facility on Wednesday, September 25 from 8 AM to 8 PM.
Due to the work required for this project, Arcata’s water supply will be shut down while the work is taking place. While previous valve replacement work was taking place, Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District would have been able to provide water to Arcata in the case of an extreme emergency. They will not have that capability while their work is being completed on Wednesday, September 25.
The City is encouraging residents to conserve water to maintain an adequate water supply and ensure fire protection reserves during this shutdown period. Water customers may notice a small decrease in water pressure along with a slight increase in chlorine residual in their water during this time.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to community members.
