Alameda Point residents asked to avoid drinking tap water

Alameda Point residents asked to avoid drinking tap water”

Residents in one Alameda neighborhood are being advised to avoid drinking tap water for the next two days, city officials said tonight.

Water quality for residents of nearby Coast Guard Housing, Bayport and Summer House Apartments, as well as other Alameda residents outside Alameda Point, are not affected.

The alert comes after the East Bay Municipal Utility District found evidence of quality issues in the Alameda Point drinking water system, probably caused by a "cross-connection" between a drinking water line and an irrigation line. Residents of the area should not drink from faucets or allow pets to consume the water until utility district officials identify the source of the problem, according to the advisory.

The Naval Air Station Alameda was constructed in the late 1930s and remained in operation until 1997, according to the Alameda Naval Air Museum.

Today, the area is home to popular businesses such as the Rock Wall Wine Company, Hangar 1 Vodka, and Faction Brewing as well as residential buildings and office spaces.

Bottled water is available for residents at Alameda Point Collaborative, 677 West Ranger Avenue.

Water is not drinkable at Alameda Point in Alameda on Tuesday night, officials said.
