Flush stagnant water to freshen supply before use

Many nonessential buildings have remained empty during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as businesses and the community follow California’s stay-at-home order. The water in the pipes of these buildings could become stagnant during this time. Non-moving water can sometimes cause aesthetic (taste and odor) issues due to the internal plumbing.

Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District recommends commercial customers with empty buildings freshen their water by flushing it through a sink or other water supply for at least five minutes prior to use.
