Planned Overnight Water Shutdown To Impact Arnold November 9-10

Arnold, CA…A planned overnight water shutdown is expected to impact service to much of the Arnold area from 9 p.m. Wednesday November 9 to 7 a.m. Thursday November 10. Customers who live on the lower portions of the system may experience no impacts, while those living on the higher portions of the system may experience little to no water pressure.


This shutdown is part of the District’s $5.3 million Reach 3A Project (click here to learn more). During the shutdown, T&S Construction crews will be removing an isolation plate near the Moose Lodge and then connecting a section of new 12-inch ductile iron pipeline to the 3 million gallon Sawmill tank, which sits on the hill above White Pines and serves as the primary water supply for Arnold. This will require the Sawmill Tank to be shut off, leaving most of the town with a limited water supply until the project is complete.

In order to maintain water pressure in the system, the Blue Lake Springs Mutual Water Co. has agreed to feed part of the CCWD system using their water supply tanks. The District is grateful to BLSMWC for their assistance in minimizing impacts to CCWD customers.

Although it is highly unlikely, CCWD customers who live above Arnold in the areas of Big Trees Village and Dorrington may experience low pressure or water service disruptions if the Sawmill tank shutdown lasts longer than expected due to unforeseen complications.

NOTE: The date of this shutdown depends on weather and is subject to change.
