The project includes 3,400 lineal feet of 18 inch water pipe along Ridge Road along with a pump station to bypass a portion of a source water canal which was destroyed in a land slippage which occurred during a sequence of disaster storm events. The project also includes temporary emergency pipes along the source water canal and modifications to the remainder of the canal in the vicinity of the destroyed section to prevent further loss of property or life. This project will restore water supply to the cities of Sutter Creek, Jackson, Amador City, Ione; community of Drytown; and surrounding vicinities.
This project is necessary to restore the water supply necessary to meet water needs to a number of cities and surrounding areas and prevent further loss of property or possibly life. The Governor of California declared a state of emergency following the storms that destroyed a portion of the source water canal. This project replaces that portion of the destroyed source water canal as a result of a disaster with a pipeline.
