Sonora, CA — Residents in the Big Hill area have been without water for most of today.
Freezing temperatures have been playing havoc with the water pipes.
T.U.D. General Manager Pete Kampa saysWe are bringing the system back up at this point.” Kampa notes that a water distribution site will be set up until 5pm at the mill site on Big Hill Rd.
Kampa also says,We are issuing a boil water notice, so that when the water does come back on in Big Hill, residents are informed to boil their water at a rolling boil for at least a minute.” The water should then be cooled off before use.
Kampa adds that this is a precautionary measure that residents should do until further notice. He says the district has not yet had a chance to do any bacterial sampling.
