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.

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.
