Cerritos flushes water mains

September 23, 2016

The Cerritos Water Division started flushing the water mains throughout the City last month in response to the California State Water Resources Control Board's recommendation that all public water distribution systems be flushed to reduce stagnant water and sediment build-up.

Notices, placed on the front doors of residences, ask residents to refrain from using the water between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on their designated flushing days. If residents see discolored water during the flushing, they should refrain from using the water in their homes. Residents should check the water at the front hose faucet periodically to see if the color has cleared up. If the water looks clear, residents may run the faucets in their homes to flush out remaining sediment.

Direct questions or concerns to the Water Division at (562) 860-0311, ext. 2031.
