The Calaveras County Water District is planning a water outage from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday September 29 to repair a leak on Copper Cove Drive in Copperopolis. There will be one-way traffic control on Copper Cove Drive during the repair, and customers living on the following streets may lose pressure or experience low pressure:

  • Copper Cove Drive
  • Copper Meadow Drive
  • La Cobre Mina
  • Feather Drive
  • Iroquois Circle
  • Morado Circle
  • Sequoia Cirlce
  • Quail Hollow
  • Payless IGA

CCWD crews have notified businesses in the area that may be impacted by this water service interruption.

Possible discolored water

When water service is restored, some customers may experience discolored water. CCWD crews will do their best to flush the system using hydrants to remove discolored water, but it may take some time until the water color returns to normal. Until the water runs clear, the District recommends that customers avoid washing loads of laundry, especially if the clothes are white and bleach is being used. It is important to remember that even if the water is discolored, it is completely safe to drink and poses no health risk. If customers would like to flush their person plumbing systems to remove the discolored water, they can turn on an outside faucet at the lowest point on their properties and let it run until the water turns clear.

Customers with questions or concerns may contact CCWD Customer Service at (209) 754-3543 or email
