Oct 18 - The City of Sacramento, Government Department of Utilities is lifting the "Do Not Drink” advisory that was issued yesterday to the limited area south of Main Ave., west of Norwood Ave., east of Pell Drive, and north of Interstate 80 in North Sacramento. There is no further indication of possible contamination and the water is safe to drink. Flushing of fire hydrants in the area has resolved the color issue and the City continues to investigate the possible causes. Laboratory results indicate that water samples are normal. The City will continue to monitor this area daily for at least a week to ensure the issue does not reoccur. City residents can contact the City of Sacramento at 311 or 264-5011 with any comments or questions. Read Post
