The June 6 City Council meeting will include a presentation of immediate and long-term responses to the water discoloration that has affected about 100 residences citywide. The results of water testing, which has shown no health risks from the city water supply, will also be discussed.

After several weeks of researching potential solutions, the City is proposing a short-term approach that is expected to resolve the discoloration issues within the next month. Also on the agenda is a plan to build a $2.3-million water treatment facility that will provide a long-term solution beginning in January, 2019.

“Finding a solution for the discolored water has been the City’s top priority,” said City Manager Stephanie DeWolfe. “I am pleased that our water operations team has found the right approach to resolving this issue as quickly as possible.”

Also before the Council is the City budget for Fiscal Year 2018-2019, following a public hearing and comment period that began May 16.

The City Council meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6 in the Council Chambers, 1424 Mission St., South Pasadena. Please visit the City’s web site to view the full agenda and staff reports.
