Calaveras County Water District crews made an emergency repair to a 10-inch water transmission line today, Monday, 3/16. This work took place between Bridlewood Lane and Black Creek Road and may cause residents and businesses who live in the area of the intersection of Copper Cove Drive and O’Byrnes Ferry Road to experience water pressure fluctuations.
Due to the large size of this repair, customers in the area may experience discolored water and air in their systems. Please follow these instructions if you are experiencing discolored water in your home:
Experiencing discolored water and air bubbles in homes is normal after leak repairs. Even though CCWD crews will flush the system using hydrants to remove discolored water and air from the main lines, some may remain in customers’ personal plumbing systems. It’s important to remember that even if the water is discolored, it is completely safe to drink and poses no health risk. However, the District recommends that customers avoid washing loads of laundry using bleach when experiencing discolored water in their homes, because it can lead to clothing being stained. If customers do experience discolored water and would like to flush their personal plumbing systems to remove it, they can turn on an outside faucet at the lowest point of their properties and let it run until the water turns clear.
Areas that may be impacted include La Cobre Mina, Feather Drive, Sequoia Circle, Morado Circle, Iroquois Circle, Copper Meadows Drive and the shopping centers at the corner of Copper Cove Drive and Feather Drive and the commercial center surround Young’s Payless Market IGA. The District will make every effort to minimize the impacts of the water service disruption on residents and businesses.
