Boil Water Notice – Water Service Disruption From Hunters Dam Rd to Down Below Forest Meadows

Avery, CA...An 8” water line was damaged as part of CCWD’s Reach 1 Pipeline Replacement Project today August 4th, 2020. This failure resulted in the emergency isolation of the water main in order to make the repair. This failure affects customers from Hunter Dam Road along Highway 4 West to below Forest Meadows. There is an active Boil Water Notice in effect.






CALAVERAS COUNTY WATER DISTRICT
120 Toma Court  Post Office Box 846  San Andreas, CA 95249  Main Line (209) 754-3543
August 4th, 2020

Boil Water Notice
Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable.
Tradúzcalo o hable con alguien que lo entienda bien.

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING
Failure to follow this advisory could result in stomach or intestinal illness.
An 8” water line was damaged as part of CCWD’s Reach 1 Pipeline Replacement Project today, August 4th, 2020, and as a safety precaution, the State Water Resources Control Board, Division of Drinking Water, in conjunction with the Calaveras County Environmental Health Department, and Calaveras County Water District (CCWD) are advising Residents from Hunter Dam Road West on Highway 4 past Forest Meadows to just beyond Strawberry Hill.

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water and it is the preferred method to assure that the water is safe to drink.

• An alternative method of disinfection for residents who are unable to boil their water is to use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach. To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using. A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.

• Water disinfection tablets may also be used by following the manufacturer’s instructions.

CCWD will inform you when tests show the water is safe to drink, and you no longer need to boil your water. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to resolve this issue within the next two-to-three days.

For more information:
Calaveras County Water District: CCWD Customer Service at (209) 754-3543, P.O. Box 846, San Andreas, CA, 95249; Damon Wyckoff, CCWD Director of Operations, at (209) 768-8682.

Visit www.ccwd.org or www.facebook.com/calaveraswaterdistrict for updates.
State Water Resources Control Board Drinking Water Field Operations Branch District Office: (209) 948-3963. Calaveras County Environmental Health: (209) 754-6399 Ext. 1

Important note: This boil water notice only applies to the customers who receive it. The District will hand-deliver boil water notices to all affected customers. Customers who do not receive this notice do not need to boil their water.

This is why most county's hire a real contractor with people that not only know their job but can do it too as I'm sure you have seen the retards that Calaveras has working for them I'd say most have a hard time tying their shoes I don't think they know what a work boot is LOL

Looked like independent contractors doing the work. But the big problem is folks around here didn’t get notice until later in the day when they saw it on Pine Tree later this afternoon. No one I know got a phone call or any other notice from CCWD.

    We got an email from the Forest Meadows office this afternoon, but nothing from CCWD.

      Others didn’t. That still is not sufficient. CCWD surely has phone numbers for their clients. And have you gotten notice when you can stop boiling your water, when it is safe to drink CCWD water, or what they are doing to provide it, or when that might be? What if this was a major health emergency, shouldn’t we expect better?

No notice, the description of effected users was useless. Still no idea if all is well at 6:30 pm. CCWD needs to up their game on his stuff.

Called the office, recording said go to website. Went to website, found a link that said boil water advisory along Highway 4 , etc. Clicked on link . It was 4 Big Trees Village or some such . Report was not clear, and not informative as to the Highway 4 issue.

Where is the oversight and coordination in CCWD?
