City of Benicia Media Update for 05/12/22

Repairs have been completed at the Benicia Water Treatment Plant and the 30% water conservation mandate is now lifted.

The City of Benicia is very thankful for the understanding and response by residents and businesses to the city’s request to conserve water while repairs were underway. Customers conserved 4.5 million gallons over the last four days, allowing staff time to make repairs and return to treating water at full capacity.

The City Manager and Public Works Director are appreciative for the dedicated Public Works staff and the Benicia City Council for their leadership, as well as the City of Vallejo, Kerex Engineering Inc., Team Industrial Services, Coastland, and State of California regulators for their assistance.

Look for City Manager Erik Upson’s recap of the incident in his weekly newsletter City of Benicia This Week on Monday, available by subscription, on social media or at
