Mainline water leak repaired in Rancho Calaveras

Update 4:30 p.m.: Water service has been restored to all customers. If any affected customers see water with a brownish color in their systems, they may flush out their pipes by turning on a faucet furthest away from the meter and letting it run until the water runs clear (please try to save this water to use on plants due to the severe drought). Even if the water has a brownish color, it is completely safe to drink.

The District is thankful to have such excellent, dedicated staff members who worked for more than six hours to repair this water leak and restore water service to customers.

Update 3 p.m. Tuesday: Crews continue to work in making the repair to the main water transmission line. The repair is taking longer than initially expected.

CCWD crews are actively working to repair two water leaks in Rancho Calaveras that have caused a disruption of water service to about 84 people. Customers may be affected who live on these roads: Leary Court, Coleen Court, Brooks Lane, Crestview Drive, Emereff Lane, Danaher Drive  and Ross Drive.

A 10-inch main transmission line and a 2-inch distribution line are both being repaired, according to the CCWD field crew supervisor. According to initial estimates, the repairs may take up to four hours. The leaks were first reported just before 10 a.m. today, Tuesday July 21.

CCWD appreciates customers’ patience and understanding during these emergency leak repairs.
