If certain criteria are met, pools can be drained into the street gutter or storm drain. The water needs to be dechlorinated. Use a home pool test kit to confirm that chlorine residual levels do not exceed 0.1 ppm and that the pH level is between 6.5 and 8.5.
Pool drainage water can be used to irrigate hearty plants, to saturate dry ground, or to soak down rocked or mulched areas. Be sure to regulate the rate of discharge so that it does not cause problems such as erosion, flooding, or overburden the downstream drainage facility.

Usually when water looks dirty or has a funny color, it’s because of changes in the way that the water delivery system is being operated. When the direction that water flows in the pipe is changed—for maintenance work on a water main, when a fire hydrant is broken in a car accident, or there is a break in a water main— materials at the bottom of the pipes get stirred up. Often, the water only looks dirty for a short time. You should not drink it until it looks clear. One way to speed the dirty water out of your own pipes is to run all of your faucets for a few minutes. If the water is still not clear, then do the same thing again every half hour or so. The problem should go away within two to four hours. If it does not, call the Water Quality Technician at (909) 364-2808.
TIPS FOR GETTING RID OF FUNNY SMELLSSince some smells in tap water may be due to problems with your sink drain or water heater, there may be things you can do. To find out if the smell is coming from your sink drain or water heater, rather than the water itself, answer the following questions:* Does the smell come from only some of your faucets? * Does the smell go away after running the water for a few minutes?If the answer is no — the smell comes from all the faucets and it does not go away in a few minutes, then the problem is likely in the water. To be sure, take a clean glass and go to the hose bib at the front of your property. Make sure to disconnect any hoses before running the water. Open it to its fullest, and run it for a few minutes. After that, fill the glass straight from the tap and smell it. If the water is better at the front faucet than at the faucets inside your property, you should flush your plumbing system by running all the faucets for a few minutes. If the odor is really strong and does not go away, contact the Water Quality Technician at (909) 364-2808.
