Please Conserve Water While Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District Makes Improvements

Conserve Water

The City of Arcata is asking residents to conserve water while Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District makes scheduled improvements in September.

Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District supplies Arcata with water, and they have scheduled valve replacements at their facility on:

  • Wednesday, September 18 from 8 AM to 8 PM
  • Wednesday, September 25 from 8 AM to 8 PM

Due to the work required for this project, Arcata’s water supply will be shut down while the work is taking place. Arcata residents will continue to have water service, supplied by the City’s water reserves. Customers may notice a small decrease in water pressure along with a slight increase in chlorine residual in their water during this time.

The City is encouraging residents to conserve water to maintain an adequate water supply and ensure fire protection reserves during these shutdown periods.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to community members.

For more information, please call 707-825-2129.
