All boil water notices have been lifted for the City of Napa.
Boil Water Notice Locations Reduced to:
60 properties in Upper Silverado Country Club Area currently under evacuation.
All other City Water System locations are exempt from boil water Notice.
Instructions for area under Boil Water Notice:
This notice applies to water used for drinking, cooking and consumption. Boiling is not required for bathing as long as you do not ingest. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Alternative methods for residents that are not able to boil their water are:
- 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 1/4 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.
- Water disinfection tablets following the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Bottled water.
Boiling water is a precautionary measure required if there is loss of pressure within areas of the water system. We will inform you when tests (including 24 hours of incubation) show that water is safe to drink and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 4 days.

Earlier today, the ADVISORY evacuation notice was lifted for the east side of the City of Napa. Additionally, current Cal Fire incident maps show completed containment lines along the Nuns and Atlas fires where they are adjacent to or near the City of Napa. The lifting of the Advisory and the containment lines are both significant to our community as they indicate a greatly reduced threat of fire entering the City. We remind City residents that fire crews continue to battle these fires and we ask that you continue to use caution, stay vigilant, and yield to fire personnel as well as utility crews so they can continue to make progress. City residents should use today to take a breath, enjoy a day of clear skies and cleaner air, and nonetheless pay attention to information and weather changes while both the city and public safety officials will continue to provide current and relevant information to keep everyone informed accurately.
On behalf of the Mayor and City Council, we would like to again express our most sincere gratitude to our local, regional, national and international first responders and all support personnel , including CAL Fire/OES and PG&E , who have done such outstanding work to save and protect our community. We are very fortunate to have such committed and dedicated men and women serving us.
We would like to ask that you take a moment to reflect on the events of this last week and take a moment of silence for those who have lost their lives during this event. The losses suffered, and for those who continue to suffer, will take a long time to overcome. We are fortunate to live in a very generous and caring community. Please continue to find ways to help your neighbors in Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties. Your kindness goes a long way. Stay tuned to City, County and regional websites and social media for continued information and updates, including volunteering and donation opportunities.

Comcast’s Response and Support During the Northern California Wildfires - October 16, 2017
A week after several wildfires ignited in Northern California, firefighters are making progress toward containing the massive blazes that have killed at least 40 people and burned about 5,700 structures. 200 people remain missing. On Sunday, diminished winds gave firefighters a break in the weather to gain ground on the rash of fires that have scorched large swaths of Northern California, including Sonoma and Napa counties.
While some are saying things are “at a turning point,” more than a dozen fires continue to burn and as Governor Jerry Brown said over the weekend, “we are not out of the woods yet.” But in a sign of some relief, a number of residents are being allowed to return home as mandatory evacuation orders lifted in some areas, including the cities of Napa and Calistoga. Napa County is switching gears and turning its focus toward recovery, said county supervisor Belia Ramos.
For more information, Cal Fire is publishing daily updates here.
For more information about Comcast’s overall response and restoration efforts, please visit: http://california.comcast.com/ Our Twitter feed @ComcastCA is another good source of information.
Comcast Support, Service and Restoration Update
- Currently, Comcast is experiencing approximately 9,193 Residential service outages in 15 cities, as follows:
- Cloverdale: 57
- Glen Ellen: 521
- Kenwood: 677
- Larkfield-Wikiup: 853
- Napa: 44

- Angwin, Calistoga, Healdsburg, Rohnert Park, Willits and St. Helena each have fewer than 11 outages
- Comcast is working in partnership with local authorities, as well as utility and other infrastructure and service providers to ensure that our restoration efforts can take place quickly, while working within safety guidelines and other incident response protocols
- Important Note: The fires have caused widespread power failures that disrupt Xfinity services. Even when the power is restored, Xfinity services may still not be working. This is because power lines and Xfinity lines do not always travel the same path. We are working as quickly as possible, within safety guidelines, to restore services.
- During this crisis, Comcast will NOT charge fees for early termination, late fees, relocation fees or any other fees related to damaged or lost equipment
- We will work with our customers to resolve any issues they may be having as quickly and efficiently as we possibly can
- If a customer wants to suspend XFINITY services for an extended period of time, but would like to retain use of mobile apps such as Stream TV, Connect, My Account, XFINITY Home, and more, we'll enable them to do so for up to four months and will significantly reduce their bills during this time
- A list of Frequently Asked Questions for customers can be found at http://california.comcast.com
- We continue to support 19 evacuation centers in 11 cities and 8 emergency response/command centers throughout the impacted areas
- We have installed TVs and video services in numerous evacuation centers
