“We are very pleased to announce today, 10/23/2020 that we are lifting the remaining Do Not Drink-Do Not Boil (DND-DNB) order in the Boulder Creek area including: all services west of the Hwy 236/Paone Drive, West Park Ave, Boulder Brook Drive; Virginia Ave and Ridge Drive. The District’s water supply is non-detect for contaminants from the August CZU Lighting fire. The DND-DNB release occurred sooner than anticipated do to our staff’s tireless work sampling water quality and restoring the water distribution system. With the DND-DNB order lifted, the District can shift all of its focus to repairing the remaining fire damage. There is still a lot of work to do repairing the system and restoring watershed lands. The District won’t rest until we have the system repaired above and beyond its original structure. The Board of Directors and I want to sincerely thank all of our customers for their patience and understanding during this emergency. It is a pleasure to serve such a wonderful community.” – Rick Rogers, District Manager
