Low Water Pressure For Ione Residents

Low Water Pressure For Ione Residents

Amador Water Agency customers in Ione might have slightly lower water pressure thanks to an issue with a pump station. Crews worked last week to disconnect a pump station from the main distribution system after flood water eroded the property under the pump station building. The station, which is located near the Preston Avenue Bridge, is used to boost water pressure in Ione during periods of very high water demand, and was disconnected to protect Ione’s water system in the event that creek flows further undermine the structure. Most water customers in Ione should not see any change in their service but a few areas in Ione may experience a slight reduction in water pressure.
