    2. POWER & GAS
    4. CITYBUS

    Water & Sewer service in Santa Rosa has not been affected, with the exception of two isolated areas in Oakmont and Fountaingrove where boil water notices have been issued.

    Boil water notices have been issued for residents who live:

    • East of Mendocino Ave, north of Chanate Rd, west of Fountain Grove Parkway, and south of Mark West Springs Rd

    • All residents who access their home off of Fountaingrove Parkway along Rincon Ridge Dr, Sedgemoore Dr, Hansford Court, and Parker Hill Rd.

    *See detailed boil water notice and map below.


    If you are under a boil water notice you must bring all water to a boil before consuming.


    An alternative method of disinfection for residents that are not able to boil their water is to use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach. To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or ¼ teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using. A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.
