All indications are that there may be a crack in the well on Fonda Avenue. Our field personnel have flushed the system in the areas that were having dirty water in the lines. If you experience any dirty water you can open the hose faucet at the point where the water enters the home and let it run until it clears up. We are going to have to pull the pump for this well and run a camera down the well to determine what has happened. This is occurring in wells throughout the valley due to the severe over drafting of the water table. The ground is sinking and in turn the wells are developing cracks. Thank you for your patience with this. If you have any questions you can contact our office at 559-674-2407.
We have received some reports of dirty water in the Country Club area. Our field personnel are out flushing the system to clear this up. This is not a health hazard. If you experience dirty water at your residence you can open up the hose faucet at the point where the water supply enters the house and let it run until it clears up. We are working to have this cleared up as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience with this matter.
