CCWD Greater Valley Springs Area Flushing Update: Week of February 6

Valley Springs, CA...The Calaveras County Water District will be flushing its entire water distribution system in the greater Valley Springs area through the end of March. These operations may impact CCWD customers in Rancho Calaveras, Jenny Lind, La Contenta and Gold Creek. Due to the large size of the system, CCWD crews will be systematically working their way through portions of the service area over a period of about 10 weeks. Flushing will take place on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.




Proposed flushing schedule for the week of February 6 (this schedule is subject to change):

Blake Lane
Berkesey Drive
Dale Lane
Gallius Lane
Butler Lane
Heney Lane
Silver Rapids Road
Barbour Court
Stabilus Court
Garner Place
Bergsma Lane
Crail Way
Mitchell Lane
Highway 26
Friedman Way
Berryhill Drive
Coultrup Lane
Hironymous Court
Flushing is a normal part of the District’s Operations and Maintenance program to maintain drinking water standards. When flushing, crews will run high volumes of water through pipes to scrub off minerals that have built up inside of the pipes. The minerals that have been dislodged mix with the water and are flushed out of the system through fire hydrants in the area. The District will dechlorinate the water being flushed so it does not harm the environment. This process normally takes place every year. However, due to the extreme drought over the past few years, the state prohibited water agencies from flushing in 2014, unless it was required for public health and safety. Now that weather conditions have improved and we are no longer in a drought emergency, CCWD is resuming normal flushing operations.

During flushing operations, some customers may experience low water pressure and slightly discolored water which is not harmful to your health. Because the pipes have not been flushed in several years, there will be more mineral buildup than usual, which could lead to higher rates of discolored water. Conditions should return to normal within a few hours.

Customers will be notified when flushing is taking place in their area using these tools:

Signs will be placed in the area
A flushing schedule will be published on the District’s website and social media
Notices will be sent to local newspapers, websites and radio stations
Customers can call CCWD Customer Service at (209) 754-3543


When residents see signs in the area noticing residents that flushing crews are working in the area, they are asked to refrain from using water for a few hours. This will greatly minimize the chance of customers experiencing discolored water, and allow crews to remove the discolored water from the system.

It’s important to remember that even if the water is discolored, it is completely safe to drink and poses no health risk. However, the District recommends that customers avoid washing loads of laundry using bleach when experiencing discolored water, because it can lead to clothing being stained. If customers do experience discolored water and would like to flush their personal plumbing systems to remove the discolored water, they can turn on an outside faucet at the lowest point of their properties and let it run until the water turns clear.
