The following is a press release issued by the City of Fort Bragg:
Thanks to the efforts and coordination of Mendocino County, the City of Ukiah, and the City of Fort Bragg, delivery of water to the City’s Summers Lane Reservoir is officially underway. The City received 5,000 gallons yesterday and is expected to receive 10,000 gallons today. As more trucks and drivers are procured, the volume of water will be ramped up to meet demand. The potable water will be re-treated by the Fort Bragg Water Treatment System and provided to water haulers who deliver much-needed water along the Mendocino Coast.
Fort Bragg declared a Stage 3 Water emergency and has implemented water conservation measures that target a 20-30% reduction in overall water use. Record-setting low flows in the Noyo River forced Fort Bragg to cease outside water sales on July 18 in order to provide water to its customers. The City is grateful to Ukiah and the County for supplying water so that it can restore the outside sales.
Water emergency related questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 961-2823 Ext. 131. Additional information on Stage 3 Water Conservation Restrictions and other helpful conservation information is available on the City’s Water Conservation webpage.
