Boil Water Notice Locations Reduced to:
60 properties in Upper Silverado Country Club Area currently under evacuation.
All other City Water System locations are exempt from boil water Notice.
Instructions for area under Boil Water Notice:
This notice applies to water used for drinking, cooking and consumption. Boiling is not required for bathing as long as you do not ingest. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Alternative methods for residents that are not able to boil their water are:
- fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach. To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using. A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.
- water disinfection tablets following the manufacturer’s instructions.
- bottled water.
Boiling water is a precautionary measure required if there is loss of pressure within areas of the water system. We will inform you when tests (including 24 hours of incubation) show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 4 days.

Notice to City Water Customers in evacuated Silverado Country Club Areas.
Due to the recent event City of Napa Water Division are advising residents of to use boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.
The City of Napa is issuing a boil water notice for customers who live on:
Old Coach Road
Or live in any area North of Hagen Road and east of the Silverado Trail
This includes all of the Silverado Country Club, Monticello Park and Vichy Ave Areas.
The fires have destroyed a pump station in the upper region of Silverado Country Club and the Milliken Treatment plant is inoperable. The City of Napa has set up temporary pumps to restore pressure in the upper Silverado Area and will perform analyses and inform customers when the boil water notice is lifted.
DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
· An alternative method of disinfection for residents that are not able to boil their water is to use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach. To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using. A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.
· Water disinfection tablets may also be used by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
We will inform you when tests show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 4 days.
