Water Main Flushing to Begin in Early November
To maintain the highest water quality, Soquel Creek Water District crews will be flushing water mains in early November in areas of Soquel to prepare for purchasing drinking water (treated surface water) from the City of Santa Cruz Water Department.
Because not all areas can be flushed with the zero-discharge NO-DES flushing truck, traditional flushing will be performed in some areas. You may notice water running down the street while flushing. While this may seem like water waste, it is essential to maintaining high quality water for our customers.
