San Andreas, CA — According to Bill Perley, Director of Utility Services for the Calaveras County Water District, work has been completed on the water pipeline extension along Hwy 26 and Jenny Lind Rd. in the Rancho Calaveras area near Valley Springs.
Mozingo Construction completed the installation of 2,700 feet of 12-inch ductile iron pipe connecting two zones of the Jenny Lind water system on time and within budget.
Linking the zones together will assist in managing water distribution systemwide. The pipeline extension is fully operational with only two more pressure regulating valves to be installed in the most southerly portion of the Jenny Lind water system. These PRV´s will help control potentially high pressures at the far south end of the system.
Pat Emerson, Director of Administrative Services for the water district, says customers should still be extremely careful when it comes to water usage during the hot summer months. The system´s design limit is 1,500 gallons (approximately 200 cu. ft.) per day per household.
Customers can contact CCWD Customer Service at (209) 754-3543 between 8am and 4pm Monday through Friday for any questions.
