Briefly: City will test water tank

By
March 15, 2011 |

The city of Davis Water Division will conduct performance testing at the new 4 million-gallon water storage tank in East Davis. This requires water flowing from the system into the tank to test the fill control valve, and water flowing out of the tank into the system to test the pumps.

The water movement back and forth within the distribution system has the potential to scrub the pipes and suspend manganese and small particles of sand that had settled at the bottom of the pipe, which may result in discolored water at the tap.

Residents who discover discolored water are advised to fully open an outside faucet and let the water run for three to five minutes. If this does not clear the discolored water from the house lines, call the Davis Public Works Department at (530) 757-5686.

Sample foods at free tasting fair

The Davis Food Co-op welcomes visitors for a free tasting fair from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Everyone is invited to stop by the Co-op, 620 G St., to meet the people who make the food. Guests may try samples from Penna Olives, Joy & Taylor’s Raw Chocolate, Nicasio Valley Cheese Company, Sierra Nevada Cheese, Mulay’s Sausages, Z-Pie and Jovia Groves Olive Oil, among others.

The Davis Food Co-op is a full-line, member-owned supermarket specializing in natural, organic and minimally processed foods. It is open  to the general public to shop and join. Members pay the shelf price while nonmembers pay a 5 percent surcharge. For more information, call (530) 758-2667.

Party launches author’s new book

The public is invited to a book-launching party from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday in the banquet room at Bistro 33, 226 F St. in downtown Davis. This event will celebrate the publication of “First Folio,” a literary murder mystery in the style of “The Da Vinci Code,” by Davis author Scott Evans.

“First Folio” is a fast-paced thriller that follows the exploits of Joe Conrad, a fictional Davis resident, and two Elizabethan scholars as they travel from Berkeley to Washington, D.C., to London and Stratford to authenticate the priceless manuscripts of William Shakespeare’s plays, even as a relentless mercenary tracks them down.

For more information, call (530) 902-0026.

Info available on fibromyalgia

Members of the Northern Cal Fibro Friends will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday in the conference room at VacaValley Hospital, 1000 Nut Tree Road in Vacaville.

Anyone who has fibromyalgia, or who has a relative or a friend with fibromyalgia, is welcome. New information concerning helpful hints from WebMD and the National Fibromyalgia Association will be available.

For more information, contact Valma Honeyfield at valmagrace@comcast.net or (530) 756-9153 or Jan Fowler at (707) 448-5786.
