Slight yellow/brown discoloration of water in Chula Vista is not a public health concern


Sweetwater Authority (Authority) is aware that there is a slight yellow/brown discoloration in the water we are currently providing to customers in portions of Chula Vista. This discoloration is not a public health issue, and the water is safe to drink.

The slight yellow/brown discoloration is due to a fire hydrant that was knocked off yesterday evening in western Chula Vista; knocked off hydrants can disturb settled minerals in the water mains, causing the discoloration. The minerals usually settle back down within a day. We are working to remedy this issue, and apologize for any inconvenience.

For more information on the color and odor of your water, see FAQs here.

The Authority's annual water quality report is available in English here (PDF) and in Spanish here (PDF).
