Bakersfield, Cal Water Lift 5-day-old Water Advisory

The city of Bakersfield and California Water Service Co. on Sunday lifted the do-not-drink, do-not-use advisory issued Tuesday to 42 commercial customers south of Lake Truxtun after an oil company reportedly allowed pressurized natural gas and crude oil into the municipal water system.

A notice shared shortly before 4:30 p.m. said that after multiple rounds of intensive, one-way flushing, “test results have confirmed that it is safe to resume normal water use from the water distribution system.”
