City of Arcata press release:
The City of Arcata would like to remind Arcata residents to conserve water while Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District makes scheduled improvements this month.
Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District supplies Arcata with water, and they have scheduled valve replacements at their facility on Wednesday, September 18 and Wednesday, September 25 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Due to the work required for this project, Arcata’s water supply will be shut down while the work is taking place.
Arcata residents will continue to have water service, supplied by the City’s water reserves. Customers may notice a small decrease in water pressure along with a slight increase in chlorine residual in their water during this time.
The City is encouraging residents to conserve water to maintain an adequate water supply and ensure fire protection reserves during these shutdown periods.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to community members. For more information, please call (707) 825-2129.
