The City of Napa Water Division has begun the annual Unidirectional Hydrant Flushing Program which will continue through March 2016. Flushing will take place in parts of north Napa, Browns Valley, Alta Heights, the Soscol Gateway, Napa Valley Corporate Park and Silverado Country Club service areas.
Despite the ongoing drought conditions, the flushing program is necessary. If we do not routinely flush our City water mains, water quality will degrade. When pipes are not flushed, sediment can build up, react with chlorine, and increase the potential formation of disinfection byproducts, as well as require an increased amount of chlorine to ensure that the water remains potable. It is estimated that the flushing program accounts for about one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of the City’s annual water use.

Napa residents can now put food scraps and food-soiled paper in the brown compost cart along with yardwaste. NRWS/NCRWS customers have been provided with a kitchen compost pail for convenience in the kitchen, but food scraps and food-soiled paper can go directly into the brown cart. All food scraps, including meat and bones, dairy, bread, fruit and vegetables are accepted. Food-soiled paper, coffee cups, paper towels and napkins, and coffee grounds, filters and tea bags should also be included. Food scraps typically make up over 25% of what households throw away. When you add other compostable items such as paper napkins, coffee grounds and paper cups, it’s easy to see how composting will significantly reduce what we send to the landfill.
