On Friday, February 27th, 2009, the City started chlorinating its drinking water because routine monitoring had confirmed the presence of coliform bacteria in some parts of the water system. We are pleased to report that the problem has been corrected and, as of Thursday, March 5, 2009, we are no longer chlorinating the water system. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
According to State Law, we have included a notice about the coliform bacteria problem in your upcoming utility bill.
As always, you may contact the City of Turlock at (209) 668-5590 or 156 South Broadway, Suite 270, Turlock, CA 95380 with any comments or questions. Information is also available on the City’s website at
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this public notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
This notice is being sent to you by the City of Turlock.
