The District received notification from the Department of Water Resources (DWR) that they will be applying an aquatic growth treatment at the O’Neill Forebay on Thursday, June 20, 2019. Due to this treatment, the District will be limited to 1,000 cubic feet per second (CFS) on Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 6:00 am to 11:59 pm. Water users are asked to assist the District by limiting water orders or postponing the use of water on June 20, 2019. There are no restrictions on water orders prior to the planned shutdown and it is anticipated that there will be no restrictions once the limitation is lifted.
If necessary, the District will equitably adjust each water user’s order based on the reduced delivery rate.
If a water user is found to be running without or over their approved or adjusted order on Thursday, June 20, 2019, and a lateral is drained or damaged, the water user will be liable for a lateral refill charge and/or any costs associated with repair of that lateral. We will keep water users apprised of any updates.
Please call your Customer Service Representative at (559) 241-6250, if you have any questions about this notice.
