Alameda Point Water Quality Alert

In September of this year Alameda Point experienced a temporary contamination of their drinkable water.  268 homes and 60 businesses were affected by this alert.  The City of Alameda and their partner agencies were able to determine a cross-connection between the drinkable water and irrigation systems at Alameda Point, causing non-East Bay Municipal Utilities District Water to get into the drinking water system.  They were able to fix the cross-connection issue by shutting down the well that fed the irrigation line.  Safe drinking water is one of life's necessities.  If a resident or business is concerned about their water- the smell, color, or taste- they should contact their local water municipality.
