Commercial Water Systems

The State Department of Health and the legislature determined that specific commercial water systems are public water systems but are classified as community or non-community, and either transient or non-transient.

Redwood Empire Sawmill
This system requires the services of a licensed water treatment plant operator solely because there are over 15 employees who have access to the water source and is defined as a non-transient non-community system. RRU maintains the disinfection system and monitors water quality. The saw mill has three wells used for domestic purposes and one high-volume fire supply well.

Union Hotel
This is a single-service, non-community transient water system. The Union Hotel owns the water supply facilities and is responsible for the water quality. The Hotel also has a water service connection to the Occidental Community Services District. However, this is a redundant supply and is used only in emergencies.

Russian River Utility maintains the facilities and collects all water quality samples.

Water Conservation Tips
  • Reduce irrigation by 10 to 20%.
  • Find and repair leaks now.
  • Inspect and tune up irrigation system monthly.
  • Irrigate between midnight and 6AM to reduce water loss from evaporation and wind.
  • Water landscape by hand during evening hours.
  • Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveway, deck or patio.
  • Use a bucket and a hose with an automatic shut-off nozzle when you wash the car, or take your car to a carwash that recycles water.
  • Cover pools and hot tubs to reduce evaporation.
  • Use front-loading washing machines.
  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine with full loads only.
