Supplies and demands must be assessed over a 20-year planning horizon and must consider various water shortages, including short-term water supply emergencies and drought. Soquel Creek Water District will hold a public hearing on the Draft UWMP on June 7, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz at 7807 Soquel Drive, Aptos.

District Resumes Water Main Flushing and Cleaning Program

The District has resumed the Water Main Flushing and Cleaning Program due to the purchase of a NO-DES system that all but eliminates water waste during the flushing process. Water main flushing removes buildup in pipes that may cause discolored water. This is accomplished by opening fire hydrants. As the water flows at high velocities through the mains, scale and fine sediment are dislodged. The resulting discolored water leaves the distribution system through the open fire hydrants and is filtered out by the NO-DES system.
