Bradley Fire Update 4:30pm - 9/1/2017

Due to the progress on containing the Bradley fire the Advisory Evacuations for the Shasta Retreat area is being lifted. The US Forestry Incident Commander, Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Department, and Dunsmuir Fire Chief, met a short while ago and believe that the work performed yesterday and today by field resources, and favorable weather conditions, have allowed them to rescind the evacuation.

While the fire is still a concern for the City of Dunsmuir this is encouraging news, and I would like to recognize all the hard work of the all the crews fighting this fire to protect our homes and businesses. I would also like to personally recognize Dunsmuir’s Fire Chief Dan Padilla, and US Forestry Incident Commander Drew Grahm. THANK YOU!

Mark Brannigan, City Manager, City of Dunsmuir.

Public Notice - Coliform Violation

The City of Dunsmuir provides extensive monitoring of its drinking water to ensure its safety. In July 2017 sampling tested positive for total coliform. The presence of coliform bacteria in the water does not mean the water is unsafe to drink, but an indicator that there could be a problem with the system. In this case staff believes the sample point was the issue, and a new sample point is being installed.
