The City’s contractor working on a sewer project on St. Charles Court hit a Cal Water line while digging to replace a segment of sewer pipe. Cal Water is en route to inspect the water line and has estimated it will take between 6-8 hours for the issue to be resolved. 

In the meantime, some residents on St. Charles Court may be without water while the repairs are taking place.  Cal Water has yet to determine the extent of damage and whether the water has been contaminated.  As a precaution, Cal Water will be delivering water to impacted residents to use until the matter is resolved.

We will provide more information as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience as the necessary agencies work to resolve the issue.
