Scheduled Temporary Water Shutdown in Rancho Calaveras

About 20 customers on Rippon Road in Rancho Calaveras will have their water service interrupted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday.  This service interruption is necessary to allow CCWD crews to remove a fire hydrant that will be replaced at a later date. Discolored water is a common occurrence after pipeline work.  Opening and closing valves to isolate the area of repair can cause the water flow in the pipes to speed up and slow down, which dislodges minerals from the inside walls of the pipe.  While these minerals can cause the water to become discolored, the water is still completely safe to drink and there is no risk to public health.  If customers experience discolored water, they can open an outside faucet at the lowest point on their properties and run it until the water runs clear.  Those with questions or concerns about this planned shutdown may contact the CCWD Customer Service Department at 754-3543.
