STOCKTON, Calif. – On Monday, December 5, 2022, a boil water notice was issued to approximately 300 properties in south Stockton. This requirement has been lifted by the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water, the San Joaquin County Health Department, and the City of Stockton Municipal Utilities Department. It is no longer necessary for properties in the impacted areas to boil tap water or consume bottled water.
On Sunday, December 4, 2022, City water customers in the area between E. Lafayette St. and E. Marsh St., and the area between S. Filbert St. and S. Broadway St. experienced low pressure water flows. These conditions were a result of California Water Service Company crews closing two pipeline interconnection sites to repair a broken pipe. On Monday, December 5, 2022, City water crews contacted community members in the affected properties in-person to inform them of the need to boil/disinfect all tap water used for drinking and cooking purposes.
Water samples were taken for testing throughout the affected area on Monday, December 5, 2022, and again on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, in accordance with guidance from the State Water Resources Control Board. Testing results are finalized, and it has been confirmed that the water is safe to consume.
A map of the properties that received the notice is attached. For questions, please contact the City of Stockton Municipal Utilities Department at (209) 937-5056 or visit www.stocktonca.gov/water.
