Repairs to the fire damaged water system in Fountaingrove are proving successful. Over the last two months, weekly sampling data shows that water quality in the Fountaingrove advisory area meets all state and federal standards for safe drinking water. This is great news and it means we may be able to lift the water quality advisory this fall.

Next Steps 

Santa Rosa Water is currently working with our regulators, the California Division of Drinking Water and the U.S. EPA, on a plan to lift the water quality advisory. To lift the advisory, Santa Rosa Water will need to demonstrate the following to our drinking water regulators:

  • Performed targeted replacement to remove contamination
  • Sampled all service lines post replacement
  • Re-sampled 10% of all service lines
  • Conducted weekly sampling of 65 hydrants for 4 weeks

To share more details about our plan for lifting the water quality advisory, the most recent sampling data, and to answer your questions, the City will host a community meeting on September 19, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. Details below.
