Due to the installation of a new water main this Wednesday, December 1, 2021, between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., customers may experience lower water pressures and silt. We apologize for the inconvenience. For questions or more information, contact the CCSD's 24-hour main line at (805) 927-6223 or click the Contact Water Services page below.

How to Prepare for Service Restoration
As the CCSD prepares to place the new water main into service and restore pressure to the impacted areas of the system, flushing activities will take place to release air from system lines. During this process, water customers may experience some disturbance in their usual water service, such a short-term decrease in water pressure or the appearance of discolored water. Although the water should not pose a health risk, it is best to avoid drinking the water until it runs clear. You may wish to collect this water for thirsty plants and trees outdoors.
While it may appear to be wasteful, flushing is the most effective way to keep our drinking water safe and clean. Crews conducting the flushing keep careful records of the amount of water that is flushed through the lines. Therefore, this water is accounted for and tracked along with other uses of water.
