Scotts Valley Water District - System Flushing Underway
System Flushing Underway

Beginning on Monday, April 8, the Scotts Valley Water District will flush water mains for three weeks at various locations throughout the District. 

Water main flushing is the process of cleaning or “scouring” the inside of the pipes by sending a high-velocity flow of water through the system. Flushing is necessary to comply with requirements set by the California Department of Water Resources Control Board. Because flushing removes sediment from pipelines to maintain water quality, yellow to brown discoloration may occur from dislodged sediment and water pressure may be affected.

The District asks customers to minimize water use between 8 am and 4 pm during the week in which flushing is scheduled in their neighborhood (see schedule below). Flushing is a crucial preventative measure that helps to maintain the capacity of the pipe and to protect water quality by removing minerals and sediment deposits from inside the mains.
